Rishi Sethia is the Architect Behind the Modern Power Collective

By Thomas Herd | July 19, 2019 | People

In a world of high ambition, tech billionaires constantly compete to accrue the largest memberships and collectives to back their projects.


This is the case across industry—encompassing VC’s, PE funds, philanthropic boards, and yes even social clubs.

At society’s highest level, the ability to accrue and direct such power and value is all-powerful. In fact, it’s often the difference between the ideas and concepts that come to dominate culture and those that stay obscure in the background.

In London, one particularly accomplished allocator of such power has emerged. Today, Rishi Sethia (47 and a resident of Dubai) holds widespread international recognition as the man to turn to for organizing today’s most ambitious collectives.

After quarterbacking the development of today’s most unprecedented collectives—such as the ultra rarefied London social club Annabel’s (where Rishi single handedly brought two percent of the world’s billionaires) Rishi has become the human gateway for power, privilege, and wealth at the highest level.

Such recognition has parlayed into various fields such as mining and now private equity/hedge funds where investors seek his unique ability to architect and leverage a network of 100 plus billion on their behalf.

Developing this ability on his own through decades of fiscal project management for billionaires—Rishi (himself an independent multi millionaire) has opened up a new gateway for a new generation of business leaders who want to make it on their own and set their accomplishments apart from past generations.

Through his deal structuring and investment acquisition support, Rishi offers a turnkey solution to building power collectives that never existed before.

This new capability is behind the growth of some of society’s most extraordinary organizations—such as Annabel’s—where it is beginning to serve as precedent for how to accumulate and apply power to build next level projects.
