You may want to take your first steps as a stock investor with a group. If this approach appeals to you, investment clubs are for you.
Since they allow individuals to better understand stock market mechanisms, investment clubs are very successful. This success goes well beyond our borders as many countries have similar structures in place.
To form an investment club is to create a "voluntary joint-ownership" with friends to manage savings together. Every month, the club members provide funds and together decide on the investments to be made with this common pot. This sharing of knowledge enriches everyone's skills. And since this form of savings is educational and fun, it is well suited to take one’s first steps on the stock market.
