Eagle Gates Group identifies Eddy McClough as Founder and CEO of the company and the website states:
“Has over 12 years of diversified financial services experience holding senior management roles spanning investment banking, private equity, investment management, and real estate in global financial services brands such as KPMG, Bank of America Securities and Merrill Lynch. Distinguished speaker who has presented numerous keynote speeches globally ranging from macroeconomic issues, investment techniques and risk management at various international investment conference and summits.”
Eagle Gates Review
As it states, as to the company itself:
“Founded on February 2005 in the United States, Eagle Gates is now one of the world’s leading index futures investment and asset management company.”
While the Eagle Gates website domain was initially registered in 2005, research discloses that it hosted content that had nothing to do with Eagle Gates Group until earlier this year.
In March of this year, the Eagle Gates domain registration changed, reflecting when McClough most likely took possession.
Before March, the domain was redirected to an unconnected electrical gate retailer.
The Eagle Gates Group website went live sometime after March of 2016.
Since Eagle went live we have seen a steady climb in popularity with this company.

With respect to Eddy McClough, no information whatsoever about him exists beyond what has recently been published in relation to Eagle Gates Group.
There is a visibly staged “CNN interview” going around where McClough is asked softball questions from a paid actor.
The interview is given in a small studio with bad lighting, wherein McClough gives the impression of being saturated in sweat. Quite clearly, the segment did not air on CNN.
If you watch closely and pay particular attention to McClough’s eyes, you can see that he is reading from a script and, when he finishes, his eyes avert back to the interviewer. Who McClough really is, I personally have no idea. His LinkedIn profile asserts that he is based out of New York, however other than that, there is absolutely no dependable information available about him.
This is bizarre for someone who’s supposedly a ‘distinguished speaker who has presented numerous keynote speeches globally‘.
Eagle Gates provides a corporate address in New York on their website. Additional research though discloses this is a “virtual office business center” ($99.00 per month).
It seems Eagle Gates Group, and perhaps Eddy McClough, exists in New York in name only.
At the time of this review, Alexa estimates that 72.5% of traffic to the Eagle Gates Group comes out of Thailand. This proposes to me that Thailand is more than likely where Eagle Gates Group is being operated.

Eagle Gates Group Product Line
Eagle Gates Group has absolutely no retailable products or services, with affiliates only capable of marketing Eagle Gates Group affiliate membership itself.
Eagle Gates Group – Compensation Plan
The Eagle Gates Group compensation plan has affiliates invest up to $10,000.00 on the assurance of a monthly ROI.
Eagle Gates Group affiliates are also paid to recruit new affiliates who invest.
Eagle Gates Group affiliates invest funds on the assurance of advertised 3-stage monthly ROI payments.
- Stage 1 is the first 90 days after funds have been invested
- Stage 2 is 91 to 180 after funds have been invested
- Stage 3 is 181 days and onward
Monthly ROI payments are based on how much an Eagle Gates Group affiliate invests:

Direct Referral Commissions
Eagle Gates affiliates are paid a 10% direct referral commission on funds invested by personally recruited affiliates.
Residual Referral Commissions
Residual referral commissions in Eagle Gates are paid through a uni-level compensation assembly.
A uni-level compensation assembly puts an affiliate at the top of a uni-level team, with each personally recruited affiliate put directly underneath them (level 1).
If a level 1 affiliate recruits new affiliates, they are the put on level 2 of the original affiliate’s uni-level team.
If a level 2 affiliate recruits new affiliates, they are the put on level 3 and so on and so forth down a hypothetical endless number of levels.
Commissions are paid as a percentage of funds invested by a uni-level team as follows:
- Assistant Manager – convince personally recruited affiliates to invest $40,000 and receive a 4% residual referral commission
- Manager – convince personally recruited affiliates to invest $200,000 and receive a 5% residual referral commission
- Senior Manager – convince personally recruited affiliates to invest $400,000 and receive a 6% residual referral commission
- Assistant Deputy Director – convince personally recruited affiliates to invest $2,000,000 and receive a 7% residual referral commission
- Deputy Director – convince personally recruited affiliates to invest $4,000,000 and receive an 8% residual referral commission
- Director – personally recruit at two Deputy Director ranked affiliates and receive a 9% residual referral commission
- Senior Director – personally recruit three Deputy Director ranked affiliates and receive a 10% residual referral commission
Joining Eagle Gates Group – Cost?
Eagle Gates affiliate membership is completed by an investment in 1 of 3 offered packages:
- $1000 package
- $5000 package and
- $10,000 package
The single difference between the above packages is income potential over the Eagle Gates Group compensation plan.
Overlooking the fact that Eagle Gates lied about being made in 2005 and that no information on Eddy McClough even exists, the company also fails the Ponzi logic test.
An official Eagle Gates Group marketing video asserts that they have “over 8 billion USD of revenue-generating investments”:
At the same time, Eagle Gates Group asserts to have a 3-year trading record of over 603 million dollars.
Putting aside the fact that Eagle Gates Group did not even exist 3 years ago, why is a company capable of producing this sort of revenue soliciting investment from affiliates?
If the marketing video were believable (and it certainly isn’t), Eddy McClough is sitting on a everlasting goldmine that necessitates no outside investment.
The certainty of Eagle Gates Group is the only source of revenue entering the company is affiliate investment.
The use of which to pay advertised monthly ROIs makes Eagle Gates Group a Ponzi scheme.
There is some MetaTrader MT4 component to the scheme over which Eagle Gates Group affiliates can supposedly participate in index trading.
This though has nothing to do with the Eagle Gates Group MLM opportunity.
And there’s more – In addition to Ponzi ROIs, the referral side of Eagle Gates Group adds a pyramid layer to the scheme.
Eagle Gates Group affiliates are directly rewarded for recruiting new investors, which is characteristic of an MLM Ponzi scheme.
Undeniably no proof or evidence is provided on the Eagle Gates Group website linking index trading to any of the revenue claims made in the marketing video.
Eddy McClough is more than likely hiding out in Thailand or somewhere else close by. And Eddy McClough is more than likely a pseudonym.
My Eagle Gates Group Conclusion
Eagle Gates Group is a deceitful Ponzi scheme, which begins with the claim that the company has been around since 2005.
And again, once new affiliate recruitment dies down, so too will ROI payments made within the scheme.
Crunching the raw numbers,
- the $1000 package exceeds the 100% ROI mark after 14 months
- the $5000 package exceeds the 100% ROI mark after 11 months
- the $10,000 package exceeds the 100% ROI mark after 9 months
Seeing as Eagle Gates started soliciting Ponzi investment around March of 2016, this means the company is due to ultimately collapse either late this year or early next.
Referral commissions will accelerate the collapse, along with funds Eddy McClough and friends take directly off the top.
Continued new investment might prop up Eagle Gates beyond this time-frame, but Alexa traffic statistics suggests recruitment pretty much ended in early November.
And, while they might not even have realized it yet, this most likely means that the mainstream of Eagle Gates Group affiliates have already lost their money.
