Being social in the way they intended meant gathering at a physical location. Thus the Oxford Club began. It was initially known as the Passport Club. In 1991 they changed the club’s name to the Oxford Club. It was intended to convey an old-world ethos. In any event, it was a hit.
Today, twenty plus years later the Oxford Club has grown into an international organization. The club has 157,000 members in 130 countries. It has grown into a network of trustworthy knowledgeable investors and entrepreneurs. Although the Oxford Club has become a massive organization, it is still a private club. However, its chapters operate in the open. It is not a secret society – far from it. The club is always happy to welcome new members who enthusiastically share its interest.

The Oxford club’s mission has remained the same, to help its members grow and protect their wealth. To this end, the members have a common interest in looking for unique investment opportunities around the globe.
