How to Weigh the Risks and Benefits of Investment Clubs

List: Posted: 12/10/10

Finding financial success these days can be quite challenging. Many people are turning to the option of investment clubs as ways to invest in stocks that they might not be able to afford on their own.  As with any other option, investment clubs come with their share of risks and benefits that must be assessed before you make any investment decisions.


The reason many people are turning to investment clubs today is that it gives them the opportunity to learn discipline when it comes to investing.  Because these clubs involve putting your money together with other investors, there are usually pretty clear guidelines in place to help everyone stay on the same page with their investments.  Investment clubs also introduce a social aspect to investing that appeals to many people, especially if they are relatively new to the market.


Another benefit of investment clubs is that it gives you an affordable way to invest in options that would normally be beyond your means.  By pooling your money with other investors, you can collectively put larger sums of money towards bigger ventures with higher potential yields.


One problem with investment clubs is that they offer limited opportunities. It can be difficult to build a diverse portfolio with investment clubs, which can put you at much higher risk overall.  You also have to consider the fact that investment clubs require you to accept their risk tolerance as well as their investment philosophy.  Once you consider the risks and benefits, you can decide if this is the option for you.
