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 . . .

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.
