A:

Investment clubs have been around for several decades and are simply groups of people who get together to invest. While the primary motivation is to make as much money as possible, clubs are also a great way for investors to share ideas and learn about the market from others.

By law, investment clubs are not allowed to recruit members because it could be viewed as part of an investment scheme. This means that the onus is on you to approach a club.

For information on starting or joining an investment club, try the following links:

The National Association of Investors Corporation - The NAIC is the foremost authority on investing clubs in the United States.

The World Federation of Investors - This is an international association of investment clubs around the world. Its site has links to groups similar to the NAIC if you live outside of the U.S.
