Membership FAQ

What is The Blacklist?

“It’s the difference between watching one of the world’s greatest hedge fund managers…and having a three-hour dinner with them”

The Blacklist is an “access all areas” membership that gives you the chance to hang out with our star contributors and pick their brains about everything from Amazon to Asia.

Think of these brilliant people as your own (very) special group of trusted advisors and mentors.

But it’s not just about meeting the world’s greatest investors. It’s the chance to do this with your peers and then discuss, debate, explore different investment strategies and opportunities together.  

The Blacklist tier includes several premium benefits that are exclusive to the Blacklist offering.

Who are the “mentors” or Real Vision contributors participating in the events?

The mentors and contributors are hand-picked by The Blacklist team. The mix of people is very important so that our members get the most out of each event.  

We are busy planning every incredible detail and booking guests to attend our scheduled events around the globe, details of which will be shared soon.

How much does a membership cost?

The Blacklist costs $35,000 to join as a member for 1 year, denominated in US dollars, and $55,000 for a 2-year membership. 

Can I pay in monthly installments?

Membership fees are expected to be paid in full at the time of purchase. We do not offer monthly installments at this time.

Can I pay via wire transfer, SWIFT or ACH?

Yes. Please contact us at blacklist@realvision.com and we will help facilitate your domestic or international wire transfer or ACH.

I purchased a membership but have changed my mind. Can I get a refund?

We do not provide credit or refunds for any cancelled Blacklist membership subscriptions so please think carefully before joining.

What is included in The Blacklist membership?

The Blacklist includes:

  1. The Blacklist Live Summits (Quarterly) – One-of-a-kind intimate experiences featuring extraordinary special guests from the world of finance, geopolitics, lifestyle or business. Hear from the founders of trailblazing start-ups, business leaders, hedge fund managers and immerse yourself in discussions about exciting new investment opportunities. Held in extraordinary locations around the world ranging from Caribbean beaches to the world’s Top 50 restaurants.
  2. Guerrilla Events (Anytime, Anywhere) – This wasn’t on our original Blacklist blueprint, but it quickly developed on its own. One of the great strengths of The Blacklist is that our members are from 5 different continents… which means that dinners, roundtables, and drinks can happen anytime, anywhere.
  3. The Blacklist Strategy Call (8 per year) – Join from anywhere in the world and speak directly to our hand-picked finance and business superstars. Calls will focus on asset allocation, macro strategies, geopolitics, private investments, personal performance and anything else that members want to explore.
  4. The Quarterly Call with Raoul – Raoul Pal answers your questions in this quarterly dial-in call. Send in your questions beforehand or raise them on the call so you can discuss them with Raoul and the other members of The Blacklist.
  5. The Blacklist Network – This is a private group for Blacklist members. You will connect with others, grow your network, develop meaningful connections and discuss important articles, research and hopefully many investment opportunities.
  6. The Bundle – Get access to Real Vision, Think Tank and Macro Insiders for free for a full year. If you already subscribe to any of these, you get an additional year added onto the end of your current subscription.
  7. The Recap (Quarterly) – Don’t have time to attend every Blacklist Quarterly Event? We get it. And while we can’t recreate the experience, we do the next best thing – send you a comprehensive report of each event, complete with detailed summaries of speaker presentations, photos, and more. Not only does it give non-attendee members access to valuable takeaways simply not available to anyone else, it also takes the note-taking pressure off attendees, allowing them to enjoy the moment. Of course, conversations at the bar stay private…

When attending the live events do members receive free travel & accommodations?

Travel and accommodation is not included in a Blacklist membership. Only entry into the “experience” (read: event or film set) and food and beverage during the experience is included in the membership.

Travel to and from the experience & accommodations are the financial responsibility of the member. For The Blacklist members, we do provide concierge services to help facilitate your plans and are happy to recommend hotels and restaurants near the venue. However, members will have to reserve, book and pay for the hotels or restaurants themselves.

For example – if an event was to take place on a yacht in Grand Cayman and was followed by a private dinner on the beach, your membership includes everything happening at the event that day (food & beverage, yacht hire, transportation from the yacht to the private dinner and dinner itself). Members will only be responsible to pay for their travel and accommodations to and from Grand Cayman.

I don’t live in the U.S. How many events will take place outside the U.S.?

We are planning events around the world. Our goal is to make the events as convenient as possible for the majority of our members. We will host events across multiple continents throughout the year.

I can’t make it to an event or a phone call. Can I get a one on one meeting with Raoul or the featured contributor?

Unfortunately, no. We will not be able to host “catch up” sessions. However, we will do everything we can to ensure the maximum number of members can join every call. Also, we will provide recordings of every call after it has concluded.

During the monthly and quarterly calls, will I get answers to all my questions?

We will do our best to get all questions answered during the call but cannot guarantee every question you have will be answered.
