A Peek Inside “Members-Only” Investment Clubs

by David Jenyns on September 11, 2009

No concerted organizational or promotional effort has created these clubs. In outline, a club’s members meet regularly, contribute funds equally, study investment possibilities carefully, and agree jointly on shares to be purchased or sold.


Most clubs are composed of neighborhood friends or business associates. A group of policemen form the New York’s Finest Investment Club. Some avid bridge players have become the Bridge Investors Club; the Johns-Manville Club is made up of J-M employees.

The average club membership is 15, a few get to 20. Many brokerage houses are happy to have representatives attend occasional club meetings to explain brokerage and market operations, security analysis, and economic trends.

The advantages to joining an investment club include being able to put your head together with other people interested in successfully investing.
