Sir Dwight Venner is a dear friend to the BVI Investment Club, who sees the vision of the club and also stands firm on the platform of developing and facilitating opportunities for the economic and social benefit of communities and countries in general.

“Over the last 20 years the Investment Club has shown that they can be successful in the conditions of the Caribbean,” said Sir Venner at the anniversary celebrations held on May 5, 2012 at the Treasure Isle.

He spoke on the economic challenges being faced in the Caribbean and in the entire world.

Mr. Venner stated that in all the works done by the investment club, they are triumphant, doesn’t back down and they know what they want.

He stated that the members of the club are those who were gifted with entrepreneurial skills and significant tools, equipped to make the club a successful and a long lasting one.

        Agreed. There is nothing wrong with investment, but when you looked at the persons who have invested with the BVI Investment Club there are the ones that have more and the have nones can't benefit they don't leave room for the smaller people they take up all the big shares and we get the crumb shares that are next to nothing.

    All other investment clubs in the region come to these guys for advice. Little BVI with BIG BVISLANDERS!! Better days ahead guys don't mind the ignorant noise. Anybody can start an investment club, pool resources, share the risk then share the rewards. But these people just want to blab their mouth and hate, they don't know what people go through for their dollar but they always first to talk when you make it. Eat dust!

    Foolishness. Ya'll get that the interconnected "members" are in and out of government like kids in the kitchen, grabbin cookie dough? They get first grab or no bid chances on anything requiring a government OK on transfer of ownership. The concept is great, but they operate with what in the 1st world is illegal conflict of interest. That Kittian afromaster is juts the Sk&N version of bviclub-pocket liners
