I am considering starting an exclusive group and want to throw the idea around and check for interest. The way the Aries Investment Club would work is that I will send you specific corporations to invest in and a certain amount of required investment. The benefits of membership is that you can see a substantial return in the form of a stable dividend payment. To participate you must have an enterprise located on a world with current investment opportunities.
Again, in short, benefits are:
-I send you the corporations to invest in, and will ensure your share buy completes promptly without hassle. Investment amounts will typically be in the 15-20% range.
-The return in the form of dividends should consistently offer a stable income each game month. My calculations are that, on average, you will likely earn $750 million/game month for each $1 trillion invested. This is far better than a return you would receive by giving loans, which comes to $55 million/game month per $1 trillion lent.
Certain expectations of the club are:
-You will give me an idea of the amount you wish to invest and I will choose the corporations and the target ownership percentage. I will inform you of the corporations that will be the target of your investment through a message directly to your enterprise. I will continue to offer investments, as available, until your target investment goal is met.
-You are not to gain control of any corporations that I currently control. Also, I would urge that if you currently control corporations in my empire, that these corporations be returned to my control. I don't mind if you choose to make additional investment in my corporations, outside of the ones I identify as part of the club, as long as you do not gain control of my corporations.
-In general, the idea of the investment is to provide a stable income via the paid monthly dividends. Frequent selling of shares offered through the club could effect the stability of investments made by other members and is discouraged.
If there is interest in this, the pilot of this program will start on LU. It is possible that if it is popular there, that I may have offering on KB and FB in the future. I believe this program can be a giant benefit for members who have excess cash available and are looking to turn the cash into a stable income.

Aries this is definitely something I'd be interested in, however I am on KB, please do raise this again should you take it as far as KB!

I appreciate it Cotswan. KB would be the next destination if this catches on. I should have a lot of public corporations available there soon.

I think to help your efforts a relaxing of maximum number of corps you can hold shares in should be considered. These limits do not occur in the real investment world and I don't think they are very useful in the simulated investment world. Especially where CEOs involved.

You may well be right Psycho Honey. I am up to my eyeballs in share limits across my enterprises, countries, and investment funds on LU. I have lived with them though and do the best I can within the game limits.
These are the current limits for those who are interested:
Enterprises: 500 corps
Countries: 300 corps
Investment Funds: 350 corps
It is possible to somewhat exceed those numbers as the check occurs at the beginning of each game month. If a country exceeds the limit, it is not able to IPO its state corps.
You hit on the reason bringing others to invest can be useful for me. Investors can definitely benefit from the stable returns I can offer and the investors themselves will contribute to the stable environment I like to maintain with the economy in my empire. I am looking to create even more public corporations in my empire and cannot possibly control all the shares and benefit from truly public corporations.

I'm interested, just message me at cl industries.
| Tuesday, April 4, 2017 - 11:43 pm |
I really appreciate the interest you guys! I will be looking to get this started soon.
So far, I have as part of the LU pilot:
I can start sending you guys investments as soon as this week. Please send me a message to the country Candinnalm with the following info:
-Your preferred message destinations
-The amount you are looking to invest
-Any questions you may have that I may not have covered
There is still time to join the club if anyone is still interested (How about you Psycho Honey?). Thank you so much everyone!

I am going to add that country investment funds are eligible to participate as well. Again, let me know how much you have available to invest.
| Wednesday, April 5, 2017 - 04:21 am |
I am heavily invested already but still interested.
| Wednesday, April 5, 2017 - 05:29 am |
If you ever open it up in WG I am interested

I can use my IF in my main LU country. I need to build up my cash in them however. I have 0 tax and I have never really utilized them in the past so I will have to brush up on how to expand my investment power quickly. I don't see any harm in buying some shares. I would use my enterprises but the limits on shares doesn't give me much room to maneuver around my own designs. Just let me know when you want to start.

I am intereted! Great idea. I am on LU. (Also on KB).
| Friday, April 7, 2017 - 06:08 pm |
An update. I hope to have as much investment available as any of my club members wish to invest. If you haven't messaged me with your target investments yet, let me know. I am currently setting up CC6 for a new round of IPOs. It is not wise to invest in corps in that country right now, as shares will be overpriced. Soon, the new batch of public corporations there will help make available a lot of new investment opportunities.
