Our projects have new websites
THE ORB project was presented to the public at the eighteenth annual New Year’s fireworks in Protivín. This project is a unique program of the prestigious investment platform THE ROYAL CAPITAL CLUB (RCC) and its partner group IC GROUP, which has purchased the chateau and, more recently, the homestead in Protivín for the Malaysian Royal Investment Fund (RIFK) and is actively repairing them.
Viewers on Masarykovo náměstí watched two videos at the New Year, after which the facade of the chateau itself was lit up after a long time as the symbol of the new year and the project now under way. The renovation of the chateau is in full swing; the restoration of the homestead will start this year. The plans for the reconstruction will be drawn up by the ARCH.IC architectural studio, which is also in change of the repairs to the chateau.
“We want to build a new representative cultural and commercial centre at the homestead with accommodation facilities, which will also be open to the public. We wanted to use the videos to show people what they could look forward to,” said IC GROUP spokesperson Tereza Chvojková.
IC GROUP wants to restore the seven dilapidated buildings at the homestead for the Royal Investment Fund and invest a total of 150 million crowns into it.
“The plans include a guest house and apartments, a restaurant, a café and a bakery. We want to bring life back to the homestead: we’d like to hold public events there, which would attract local people as well as tourists: from farmers' markets through to seasonal events, such as the May Day festivities and Christmas markets,” added IC GROUP spokesperson Tereza Chvojková.
Since the very beginning the fund has worked closely with the town of Protivín and discusses all the steps it has planned with it. “It will greatly benefit the town that IC GROUP will repair these dilapidated buildings – we ourselves do not have enough funds to repair them, as it is a large complex. What’s more, the homestead will cater to the general public. I am sure it will attract tourists and also create new jobs,” said Jaromír Hlaváč, Mayor of Protivín.
“Throughout history Protivín Chateau and Homestead have always formed a single whole and we believe we can bring it back to life. The repairs are scheduled to be completed in 2025, with everything depending on how the permit application process goes, as these are also listed buildings,” added Věra Nagyová from the ARCH.IC architectural studio.
IC GROUP is a traditional international consultancy, investment and banking group. We manage assets for strong family investors with an emphasis on tradition, transparency and unique applied solutions. It operates in several parts of the world: particularly in Europe, Malaysia, the Middle East, Central Asia, the Far East and South America.
The founder of the Royal Investment Fund, The Royal Invest Fund of Kelantan, is the Malaysian royal family, headed by the king, Sultan Muhammad V, who acceded to the throne in Kelantan on 13 September 2010. Protivín Chateau will be used within the framework of THE ROYAL CAPITAL CLUB as a prestigious residence for the royal family itself, investors in the royal investment club and the fund’s partners.
The Malaysian royal investment fund The Royal Invest Fund of Kelantan (RIFK) has been awarded a licence in Malaysia to operate The Royal Investment Bank of Kelantan (RIBK). RIBK wants to focus on investments in financial technologies, real estate, technology parks and manufacturing, with an emphasis on ecology, commodity trading, software development, and medical solutions.
RIBK and RIFK operate under the prestigious investment platform of The Royal Capital Club (RCC) and are linked up to the international IC Group, which is the leading investment consultant for the royal fund.
The clientele of these investment platforms is based around a number of prominent royal and investor families and investment entities doing business not only in Malaysia, but also at the international level. One of the most prominent founders of the RIBK is the Malaysian royal family, headed by King Muhammad V of Kelantan.
“The philosophy of the royal family as the main investor is a vision that emphasises timelessness, respect for tradition and value sustainability. Unlike other asset managers, we work with a long investment horizon that aims to ensure that all our investors' children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren have a happy and healthy life, with strong assets behind them. We want to achieve this through diversity and diversification,” says Petr Merežko, project manager responsible for investment banking development and member of the IC Group board of directors.
Within the framework of the Royal Fund and the IC Group advisory network RIBK is represented in more than fifteen countries around the world and jointly manages more than 50 billion EUR within the group. RIBK wants to focus primarily on investments in financial technologies, real estate, technology parks and manufacturing, with an emphasis on ecology, commodity trading, software development and medical solutions.
“RIBK will offer diversified investment opportunities in seven sectors through its mutual funds. Preparations are under way for the licensing of new funds, through which we will be launching other investment projects next year,” says Petr Merežko.
RIBK, drawing on the generations of experience of its founders, places great emphasis on tradition, but is also open to innovations and solutions using modern investment instruments. It seeks a conservative and safe investment strategy that makes the most of synergy.
Prague, 14 February 2022 - Royal investment fund in Malaysia, The Royal Invest Fund of Kelantan (RIFK) is finalising preparations for a unique fintech project focused on e-money. The platform is designed to operate via unique and highly secure decentralised blockchain technology.
The project is being developed on an international scale within the framework of The Royal Invest Fund of Kelantan, which was founded by the Malaysian royal family, headed by the current king Muhammad V of Kelantan.
The project is preparing a digital hybrid financial institution, currently within Malaysian territory. Over time, it will also incorporate the project's counterparts in and outside the EU. The result will then enable clients to make use of features such as cross-border digital payment services, use stable e-money and other unique online financial services. The project is part of the prestigious investment platform The Royal Capital Club (RCC) and is managed by the international consultancy group IC Group.
“Our technology will ensure the highest possible security standards. The project for an e-money institution in the territory of Malaysia is the umbrella project for the entire future platform, which will eventually include, among other things, a digital depository, for example,” said IC Group specialist Zuzana Stehlíková.
“Our projects will enable our investors to take advantage of the hybrid environment with no restrictions as regards time or place. We will thus be moving investment into the highly anticipated regulated digital environment of the third millennium,” added IC Group spokesperson Tereza Chvojková.
“The RCC’s clientele is based around a number of prominent royal and investor families and investment entities running business in Malaysia or at the international level,” explains Tereza Chvojková.
What exactly will the solution offer?
The new technology will enable financial transactions to be more quick, secure and less expensive. With this solution transactions can be executed within a matter of seconds, regardless of where in the world they are initiated. In the future this technology will create an alternative to currently used correspondent banks for cross-border transactions, which presently results in transactions taking tens of hours and sometimes even days.
One thing that makes the decentralised blockchain technology unique is that transaction records cannot be deleted or edited, so clients have a transparent overview of the entire transaction history at any time, immediately.
The solution under the platform we are developing is designed to be slim-line, i.e. instead of high street branches it will prefer the use of the on-line environment, through which all transaction-related operations will be possible, including services such as opening an account, the card issuing and related payment transactions. The solution also eliminates all intermediaries, meaning the service works out less expensive in the end.
“We trust this project to be a success and we plan to expand and interconnect the territory of Asia with Europe, with Czech Republic to be one of the firsts. In the future, services such as a depository, security house, brokers or insurance may operate on the same technological basis within the framework of our platform,” adds Zuzana Stehlíková.
