In an investment club with personality?

Marketplace Staff Jun 16, 2006

At least 200,000 Americans invest in the stock market as members of investment clubs. Members find their clubs through school, work, church, friends, and other social networks. If you’re new to investing, it’s a social way to get some skin in the game, and start to learn the basics. Clubs meet every few weeks and put their heads together on which stocks are hot — and which ones to drop.

If you’re an active member of a fun and lively investment club . . .

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
