Investment Club History

Investment Clubs have been in existence since the early 1900s, with one of the earliest examples of a modern investment club being the 'Mutual Investment Club of Detroit', which was founded in 1941. The Detroit investment club was established when a group of individuals wanted to invest in stocks, however they did not have the money to do so individually, as trading costs were prohibitively expensive. As a result the group decided to form an investment club so that they could pool together their money to improve their buying power and benefit from economies of scale through lower trading costs per person. The Detroit investment club still lives on and it is said that their investment portfolio is now worth many millions of dollars.


One of the earliest examples of a group of people who clubbed together to make investments was an art fund called, La Peau de l’Ours (The Skin of the Bear), that was set up in 1904 by a Parisian art lover called Andre Level. Level persuaded a dozen other art lovers to contribute 250 francs each year to buy modern paintings. In return the investors got to hang the purchased artwork in their homes, for a ten year period, before the fund was cashed in by selling off the collection. Over the 10 years, Level collected work from artists such as Picasso, Matisse and Braque.


In 1914 when the First World War was about to break out, the collection was sold. One fifth of the sale was donated to the original artists, and the remainder was divided between the investors, generating them a 4 fold return on their investment. You can only try to imagine what that investment fund would be worth today if they had adopted a buy and hold strategy!
