When establishing an investment club, one of the most important things for the group to decide is the club's purpose. If all the members are interested in getting rich quickly, the investment club is not the answer. If, on the other hand, members view it as a chance to learn over the years about selecting and making wise investments, the investment club is a great way to accomplish this goal. Investing in the stock market is a long-term proposition and one that should not be taken lightly. Forming an investment club means going into business with 10 to 20 other people. People you trust and will trust you in return.
