Safety in Numbers: Start An Investment Club

Posted on Tuesday, October 16, 2012 by Saratoga_Library


The old adage “there’s safety in numbers” can be applied to investment clubs in more ways 
than one. An investment club is a group of individual investors who come together to 
learn, share investing experiences and help each other become more successful investors. 
Clubs provide education, camaraderie and buying power, plus the confidence of knowing 
you don’t have to go it alone. This workshop will review the ins and outs of starting an 
investment club and the advantages of learning and earning with a group.
