The Short version: SEI Club is a private matchmaking service that caters to singles who expect the best. Matchmakers pair current members with high-quality matches and screen new members to ensure they’re professionally and personally successful, financially viable, and optimistic about love and life. Once they pass the screening test, members may choose from a variety of membership packages and desired partner types. SEI Club takes each member’s circumstances into consideration, as well as their intentions in finding partners.
SEI Club was founded with the intention of helping successful singles find healthy, caring relationships, and the company’s matchmakers take that mission seriously. They carefully screen each new member before matching them with other successful singles.
“The right relationships have the power to make both people stronger, happier, and confident,” said Phoebe Anderson, Membership Director. “Those individuals, in turn, add their glow and positivity to the world they encounter, making the world a brighter place to live.”
Because a person’s outlook, values, and beliefs can affect his or her approach to life and work, SEI Club seeks out people who are not only intelligent and insightful but who exhibit honesty, sincerity, and care about others. This narrows down an already small base of elite daters, but that is exactly why people choose SEI Club.
“On average, our club accepts only about 30% of membership applications,” Phoebe said about the service’s selective process.
To decide whether to accept an applicant, matchmakers determine if the interested single has the outlook, ambition, and relationship expectations that would make him or her an ideal match for another member. Next, matchmakers consider a potential member’s appeal to all current members.
“We ask, ‘Do we have an abundance of members who would be a great fit?’ And, ‘Do we have an abundance of these suitable members who would also love to meet this person?’” Phoebe said.
If the answer to both questions is “yes,” the application is approved, and the prospective member moves forward in the process.
Once an application is given a thumbs-up, it’s referred to the membership department for a more thorough review. If that review is favorable, the potential member consults with a matchmaker via Skype or FaceTime. During this step, applicants can describe what they’re seeking in both life and love.
Why such a rigorous screening process? SEI Club wants to create long-lasting relationships between elite daters.
“If we can contribute to 3 million more lasting relationships within the next few years, we will be very happy,” Phoebe said.
SEI Club attracts elite singles because of its track record of results and discretion. Privacy is paramount to many of the club’s high-profile singles, and the service promises to pair members with matches who have a quality education, life experience, and empathy.
The company also aims to attract individuals it describes as “good people.” These are individuals who are not only successful professionally but who also hold optimistic life views, are honest, and care about others.
Further, SEI Club differentiates itself from other elite matchmaking companies through its traditional mindset when building relationships between men and women.
“We believe that men are hunters by nature. Women choose a hunter and allow themselves to be courted. It’s an ancient truth,” said Phoebe.
Membership spans a variety of levels with non-private options for matchmaking on the lower end of the cost spectrum. The Private Unlimited Membership — which ranges from $50,000 to more than $2.5 million — is priced to ensure matches with other highly successful singles.
Once a matched couple meets, they have the option to date exclusively or continue seeking other pairings. If a couple decides to date only one another, both individuals are taken off the SEI Club market.
“Many members stay together for a very long time,” Phoebe notes. “Often forever.”
If a member isn’t satisfied with the service, SEI Club offers a 100% money-back guarantee. That’s how much confidence the company has in its abilities. SEI Club’s matchmakers are skilled professionals who connect the most compatible clients using intuition and an in-depth understanding of their desires.
“Because of this deeper, valuable understanding, we see ourselves, at the professional and human level, as the most thorough, contemporary service available,” Phoebe said.
SEI Club has 11,000 members from around the world, and Phoebe attributes the company’s success to two vital attributes: its matchmakers and its patching options.
Matchmakers collaborate with one another to meet the needs of the discerning clientele, 40% of which earns between $1 million and $10 million per year. Even if matchmakers don’t find a long-term partner for a member right away, they still want to create memorable dating experiences, even if they don’t turn out to be “The One.”
SEI Club offers many different packages based on the type of match a member seeks.
Members can choose Same Age Matched-Dating, which connects men and women who are close to the same age. Many of these younger members marry and have children, while older members in their 50s and above can find companions for love, travel, or companionship.
“Often, older members have been married, had children, and are at a place in their lives where they have the freedom to travel and enjoy life,” said Phoebe. “They simply seek a wonderful partner to share life with.”
Another option is Age Difference Matched-Dating that introduces older men to younger women. These relationships are typically between men who are 10 to 30 years older than the women they want to date.
“These relationships work when the woman prefers a more emotionally evolved gentleman with whom she can connect better on a deeper level and when the man finds that same depth and fulfillment from the relationship,” Phoebe said.
SEI Club offers another high-profile service called Fashion Models Matched-Dating, which pairs female fashion models with the men they seek. These attractive women often join SEI Club in search of sincere relationships and men who are emotionally experienced and financially stable.
SEI Club can be so selective because it’s a global operation with services in every major city in the world. It has a large dating pool from which to choose the best individuals, and matchmakers often tailor their services based on the member’s location.
“Our demographics in Los Angeles or New York, for instance, look a little different than those in Hong Kong, or the Middle East,” Phoebe said.
However, despite any cultural differences, many of SEI Club’s members have achieved great success in their professional lives, enjoy travel, and think globally.
SEI Club believes its members have so much success in love because they’re meant to be together. Many of its matchmakers believe that forces in the universe will guide their hand if two people are destined to be together.
Matchmakers often hear success stories from clients and are motivated to continue connecting high-quality clients with the partners for whom they’re searching.
“Our work is a privilege that we do not take lightly,” Phoebe said. “We view this as an opportunity to add value to the world. It’s a way to contribute and we are deeply appreciative to do what we do.”
