Just like the old and renowned ship Batavia climbed the mighty waves of the sea, Batavia nowadays courses through the stock market in search of wealth and riches. Riches we acquire through the vast knowledge of our experienced members, accompanied by the steep learning curves of our newer recruits. Wealth is gained through ingesting many pints of liquid gold, together with the laughter of 20 blue-silvers hearts beating in the fierce rhythm of the rowing oars.
As the old Batavia was a Dutch ship, we also are a Dutch group. As women used to bring misfortune on sea voyages, we also don’t bring them with us when we sail across the tides of the market.
The ship Batavia could be found anywhere between Holland and Indonesia, but ultimately we have decided to anchor in the safe harbour of Apartt. It is here, where you can find us at every drink. And it is here where you can hear us say: “One can obtain the skills to invest, but being sociable has to come from within.”
