Investment clubs have been in existence for more than a hundred years. The idea of a club is that many heads are more effective than one, and that the socialization makes investing much more enjoyable and less distressing. The purchasing power is also stronger in investment clubs, as a group will have more money to invest and will therefore get lower fee rates through brokers.
While investment clubs do carry some risks, they typically outperform individual portfolios. Each member takes turns researching a stock of interest and then presents the research to the rest of the club, generally on a monthly basis. The members either agree to purchase the investment product or they decide against the stock and move on to other ideas.
How do investment clubs get started? Anyone can decide to form a group, although your club may have to file for an EIN. After that, the process works just like any normal buying and trading operation. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission has more information about securities laws at www.sec.gov.
In its investing commentary, the website www.fool.com explains the logistics behind investment clubs. Any group of friends can get started, as long as everyone agrees to put in the same amount, which can be anywhere from twenty five dollars per month up to fifty or more dollars each month.
No matter how much you know about investing or how little you know, investment clubs offer additional outside perspectives for its members. The group format is educational and it’s a fun environment for learning. The website www.betterinvesting.org will help your group on its path to investing success.
