Investment Club Goals & Education
Before your Investment Club is formed it is first recommended that you establish what everyone's aims and objectives are for the club, including: financial goals, an investment strategy and a method of developing an improved understanding of the stock market and investment products that are available.
For your club to be a success it is important that all members are singing from the same sheet. If members have differing objectives it will likely lead to discord at a later date. You should look to establish the following from outset:
- How long will the club run for? The investments you make and strategies you employ will of necessity be different if members are expecting to wind up the club and withdraw funds after a couple of years compared to a ten year savings program.
- How much risk is everyone prepared to take? Some clubs are used for the wildly speculative investments that their individual members would never dream of making with their personal portfolios; some clubs will take a much more cautious approach to their investments; whereas others will be a combination: running speculative, cautious, medium and long term portfolios at the same time.
- How much work / time is everyone prepared to commit to the club each month? It is important that everyone reaches an agreement and understands how much time each individiual member will dedicate to the club each month, otherwise members can have wildly differing expectations which will inevitably lead to frustrations down the line.
- What is each member hoping to gain from being part of the club? Are they hoping to learn, share knowledge, speculate or save, or are they really only interested in the social aspect? The majority of clubs are set up as a platform to learn about investing in the stock market. If learning is the over-riding objective of your club's members, you need to reach an agreement as to how this will be achieved. Will you each attend structured training courses? Will members commit to reading educational material or sharing their knowledge, for example each member agree to present on a new investment-related topic at least once a year?
As you can imagine, the member who is using the club as a serious long term savings vehicle and who spends several hours a month researching stocks, diligently learning about new strategies and sharing that knowledge, will likely and justifably come to resent the member who does no research and just turns up for a pint each month!
Clear up these issues at outset and you are well on your way to establishing a happy and successful club that will run for many years!
