These reasons include:
- Combined investment knowledge. When you work with a group of people who have a similar interest in the stock market you’ll be able to have a huge amount of combined knowledge working in your favour. Even those complete newcomers to the stock market will have a valued opinion and pieces of information that when you add it all together equals a lot of thinking power. So long as you have a plan of diplomacy you’ll be able to make decisions about where you’re going to invest your money in such as way as the choice is of the majority and is based on a great deal of thought. If you’re unable to take direction from a group of people that you’re working with then an investment club may not be for you.
- Personal risk is low. Even though the money that your club has to invest can be quite large, your own personal contribution can be very minimal. This way you’re not risking a lot of your money while you learn how the stock market works. You can still make some great investments but your loss factor will be manageable for you. Keep in mind that when your club makes a profit, no matter how small, the amount must be distributed throughout the membership.
- More room for profit. Recent studies of investment clubs show that when a group of people make investment decisions after a series of discussions and debates, the potential for profit is greater than when individuals make their own decisions about where and how to invest their money.
- Similar interests. Members of an investment club enjoy getting together on a regular basis to discuss the investment market and to learn more about a subject that greatly interests them.
- Invest regularly. Investment clubs have the ability to invest in the stock market even when the market is dropping or is slow. Because the money in spread out among a group of members the room for huge personal loss doesn’t exist.
- Reinvest. Since most members are part of an investment club for fun, and to learn more about the stock market, there will be more room for reinvesting the gains and dividends that are earned from successful investments. When you invest on your own you wont be as willing to part with earned investment money and reinvest everything that you gain.
- Spread out investments. When you’re investing with a group of people you can diversify your investments and not limit yourself to just one or two market choices.
There are many other reasons why its mutually beneficial for people to join together in an investment club.
The main reason is that people have a genuine interest in sharing their investment experience and knowledge with others with the same interests.
