A traditional investment club is a small group of individual investors who come together to learn, share investing experiences and help each other become more successful investors. At group meetings, usually held monthly, members pool their investment dollars, review studies of stocks presented by club members and select one or more stocks to buy, based on BetterInvesting's unique investment methodology.
An alternative approach to the traditional club is a self-directed investment club. Just like traditional clubs, self-directed investment clubs meet regularly and share analysis, insight and information in pursuit of investment opportunities. The difference is that after investment decisions are made, club members invest through their own accounts.
