Exclusive members-only dating and matchmaking service expanding to worldwide service. SEI Club, the dating playground for millionaires and billionaires, is continuing its expansion into the Asian market.
LOS ANGELES—SEI Club, the dating playground for millionaires and billionaires, is continuing its expansion into the Asian market.
The exclusive, members-only dating and matchmaking service has been expanding its operations and its latest moves into the Asian market are part of its growth strategy, a spokesperson for the service said.
“With the enormous growth of the economy in many Asian countries, there are more successful professional singles who want to find a true romantic partner,” the spokesperson said. “Those are the people who are our target demographic, and we’re always working to find new ways to serve them.”
In late 2015 the service announced that it was expanding into Hong Kong and Singapore. Other locations are being carefully considered based on population, relative affluence and other metrics.
SEI Club works to connect affluent professional single men and women. One of the things that sets the service apart is its highly rigorous screening and application process. Each potential member must apply and then go through several layers of screening, including in-person meetings with someone from SEI Club’s executive team. The screening looks at each applicant’s holistic attractiveness, education, professional success and personality.
“We only accept the highest-caliber, most accomplished single men and women,” the spokesperson said. “We also only accept applicants who we believe are going to be able to form fulfilling romantic relationships with our members. In order to become a member of SEI Club, someone also has to be a genuinely good, positive, healthy, bright person.”
In all, less than 35 percent of applicants are accepted, making the service extremely exclusive. “We serve the financially, socially and culturally elite,” the spokesperson said.
Once accepted, members are presented with a portfolio of potential matches based on their romantic preferences and relationship goals. Some members are looking for a long-term romantic partner, while others want to meet multiple people for casual dates and to see where things lead.
“Members can be sure of a few things, no matter what their goals,” the spokesperson said. “First, they know that they won’t waste their time meeting unsuitable matches, because our experienced team of matchmakers eliminates those in advance. Second, all of the potential matches they are presented with have been carefully considered. People at the level of success our members have reached demand the very best in all things, and we work to ensure that’s what we always offer.”
In addition to creating a portfolio of matches, the service also handles arrangements for introductions. Dates are set up and then the service’s team follows up with both parties to follow up and get initial feedback.
The personalized attention and high levels of discretion that the service offers has made it popular with high-profile clients. Forbes billionaires, Fortune 500 CEOs, successful entrepreneurs, media figures and even members of the nobility have been members over the club’s lifespan.
“People who require privacy and discretion because of their positions in the public have always been happy with what we offer,” the spokesperson said. “They appreciate that every potential match has been screened carefully and that we work very hard to ensure confidentiality. Like all of our members, they are used to the highest levels of service and the finest things in life, and we always strive to meet or exceed their expectations.”
Another aspect that members praise is the worldwide reach of SEI Club. With offices in major cities around the world and members from many different countries, matches can be made across borders, if the member so desires.
“Because we cater to such an accomplished, international clientele, location can be less of a factor for some,” the spokesperson said. “If members want, we can connect them with matches anywhere in the world, and they can be sure that those matches are as high quality as the ones they’d find in their own city.”
The service’s continued expansion into Asia is designed to continue that ability by finding affluent, successful leaders who meet SEI Club’s profile.
