The Guild Of Collegious Investors is a corporation created to invest capital received from players and corporations. We offer 5% interest every week on any investment over 1 million ISK. Any investment over 1 billion ISK gets an interest rate of 7% every week. Additional +0.5% interest rate added for every week a client reinvests, with a maximum investment rate of 8% interest rate every week. An API and ID can be given if requested. All our transactions are posted on our facebook page found here:
We will be in need of more brokers in the next few months to come. Mail The Middlemann if interested about this or investing.

Currently our corporation (The Guild Of Collegious Investors) has 3 people employed:
-Kag Ronuken: Market Specialist (Broker)
-Fred Bruno: Market Specialist (Broker)
-The Middlemann: Public Relations

Our corporation works by a step-by-step process:
1. Client routes money to The Middlemann.
2. Middlemann transfers money to a corporation master wallet.
3. Money in corp wallet is divided among brokers at the beginning of next pay cycle.
4. The money is then invested into the EVE market by trading products for high ISK profits.
5. At the end of weekly pay cycle, brokers put capital plus collected interest into a corporation return wallet.
6. The Middlemann returns the interest (plus capital amount depending on how investment is set up) to clients.
7. Percentage of profits given to Jukeb0x (founder of this business) and remaining profits kept by brokers.

All our client's transactions are made through an alt (The Middlemann) created specifically for advertising the corp and easily keeping track of money without having to wade through personal transactions. Money to and from clients and our brokers will always be found in the transaction journal of The Middlemann. Screenshots will be taken of The Middlemann's transactions as well as APIs released so you know where your money is going.

After our capital is given to our brokers, we then let them do the leg work. Every week we will post journal transactions of our Brokers so you know exactly what they are buying and selling with the total capital given to them to invest.

List of Previous/current investors:

Kiroma Halandri, Edward Talos, IZGUCCIBABY, Austin'Kru, Amon Vess, Molly Milli0ns, Jukeb0x, Rhael Stormfury, Nuagle, Aedan Tau, Gondebor, Lucien Domeisen, Trader Kiai, Avermaki Dankholdt, Kreea

Kind Harvest Corporation


Question: Why use an alt like The Middlemann for all your transaction?

Answer: Obviously creating an alt comes off as a profile made for classically scamming people. We are not trying to scam anyone, and the sole purpose for having an alt do all this work is to create a safer and more secure way of keeping track of money. We post daily screenshots of The Middlemann's journal, and we want our clients to see where their money is coming and going without having to constantly look through The Middlemann's personal transactions. If it really bothers you or you are afraid that it was created for a scam then I can give you the name of The Middlemann's main and API's upon request. Private message me if this is what you need to make or break a deal.

Question: I'm still a bit uneasy and unsure about this. Is there someone i can talk to for more info?

Answer: The Middlemann is a good person to contact about general questions. However as far as specifics for what we invest, how we invest, etc. You may talk to any of our current Brokers for more info.

Question: Your corp name is spelled wrong. Shouldn't it be "collegiate?

Answer: We know. It's a reference to the TV show "Venture Bros" :D

Totally legit this isn't a ponzie scheme at all.

Some say its distasteful. Nah I say.

A "Phaser Inc" ponzi scam wannabe.
Unimaginative, but there's probably enough suckers out there to make the effort worthwhile. Big smile

I enquire inserting up **** it. This crap isn't even worth my time to troll properly.

Sad panda.

I don't always play EvE, but when I do, I prefer it to be a masochistic sandbox hell. Stay wardecked my friends.

To: Lord Wickham,

I am trying to start a legitimate investing business, and i need someone to audit the funds that come in and out of our business so our clients are provided a safeguard. Please, if you are interested let me know exactly what we have to do to gain your approval. Any suggestions for the bettering of this corp will be taken.
Here is a link for our thread

If you need APIs of all our investors let me know.

Thanks again. Please let me know what you think of this even if it means denying an audit.

~The Middleman

my opinion of this scheme/corp/investment is that its a scam, very much like phazer inc and 1's before that. Secure collateral and then you'll find more willing participants. you wont secure investors when you haven't built a reputation, people that have been 2 years in the game still struggle to get 5-10% interest bonds for more then 10bil

Hey, fellas! I see that for the most part, our thread here doesn't seem to be kicking off to the ideal start, but that's alright. Thanks to all of your input, and from that of the local channels, we are actually undergoing some revisions of our policy to help build that trust level.
Keep in mind, everything starts somewhere, so be proud that you were the first to lay the groundwork for the History of the Guild of Collegious Investors, and through you all, we are working to make this benefit us all.
The full statement of our updates will be available soon on our Facebook page. (Yes, I personally think it was a little silly, but a great start to have something to post all of our records and the like. Very soon, we hope to have a full independent website.)
We will also be hosting a very special event soon, to which anyone can take part in. The full details will be posted with our policy update. Please stay tuned for these exciting changes!

New Company policies have been updated! check em out right here:

New policy includes:
-Weekly 5% rather than biweekly.
-Investments more than 1 billion will recieve a bonus +2% interest (7% per week)
-We are also changing our pay cycle. Starting March 24th a new investment cycle will begin. You must contact us before then if you wish to be part of this next pay cycle. We will try to get ahold of you in the next 3 days, however we cannot garuntee being online at your convenience. Send an EVE mail just to make sure. Any ISK not given within 24 hours of the pay cycle will not be included in the returns for that investment cycle.
-We are setting up a return system where an additional 0.5% interest will be permanently added for every consecutive week an investment is made, with a maximum of 8%. This means that if you start investing 100mil on week one you will get 5% interest and 5.5% on week two, and 6% on week three, etc. Contact us if you wish to set up a pay cycle to give you interest and reinvest your principle for the added interest bonus. Otherwise you must resubmit your returned ISK within 24 hours to keep the +0.5% bonuses and to be included in the next pay cycle.
-We realize this can be a bit confusing, and we are completely willing to work with your needs. Contact us with any questions, otherwise we will try to get ahold of you whenever we are logged on.

I sent in my unused gold and broken jewelry to the GCI and two weeks later got a check in the mail for over a thousand money.

Hello, Capsuleers! As you may be aware, The Guild of Collegious Investors is fairly new to the grand universe of EVE, but that doesn't mean we are any less generous. Sure, our group encountered the usual "SCAM! It's a Scam!" comment here and there, but there isn't a single corp that requires the trust of it's investors to operate. With that, I would like to give a big thanks to everyone who helped us reach our first goal of 1,000,000,000 in investments. We are proud to say that every penny has been returned, to even the smallest of our investors.

I very much look forward to hearing confirmation from your many investors, even the smallest. Blink

You asked for a reply from an investor and here I am. I was paranoid at first, and still am to a degree, but i was given my 5% and chose to re-invest with a further 5 million (5x my original investment). What did you want to know?

Oh and before the "Lol noob is getting scammed" posts begin to flame i will tell you the same thing i learned IRL before the stock market plunged IRL. " only invest what you are willing to lose" sounds ALOT like "Never fly what you can't afford to lose". This game is about risk v reward. i already got some reward and i will enjoy the rest that comes in :)

'may the rocks melt before you' Lol
