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” memberships that give 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 Raoul. 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?

For the first year, The Blacklist costs $25,000, denominated in US dollars for 1-year membership and $40,000 for 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 membership@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?

When attending the live events or visiting select film shoots, 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. Therefore, if the most of our members reside in Europe, we will host more events in Europe than in other places in the world. Regardless, we will host events across multiple continents throughout the year.

I can’t make an event or 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 are able to join each and every call.

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.

As a Blacklist member, how will I get access to The Network?

Soon after you become a Blacklist member you will receive a welcome email from your membership team. In that email, we will ask you a series of general interest questions and request you provide us with a link to your LinkedIn profile. Shortly thereafter you will receive an invite from us to join our private, unlisted LinkedIn group.

As a Blacklist member, when can I expect to receive my The Black Card?

A few weeks after you join The Blacklist you will receive a welcome package via the post from the Founders of Real Vision. Included in that package will be your personalized Black Card. If your shipping address is different than the address you use at checkout please contact us at membership@realvision.com
