Thank you for your interest in BetterInvesting – St. Louis. The purpose of BetterInvesting is to provide an educational opportunity for an individual to learn individually or in a club, to make informed investment decisions and/or form and operate an investment club according to long-term methods and principles of BetterInvesting. The four basic principles are:
- Invest regularly
- Reinvest all earnings, dividends and profits
- Buy growth equities which have the potential to double the value of your portfolio everyfive years
- Diversify your investments.
We are a non profit educational organization.
Why an Investment Club?
Many think membership helps them become disciplined with regular investing as well as learning the simple principles and judgment factors in buying “good” equity. Investing in the stock market provides a higher return, over the long-term than any other investment vehicle. The magic of compounding allows us to grow those investments with very little effort. By pooling funds, the club is able to diversify its holdings more easily than an individual investing on their own. By pooling talents, the task of researching companies can be split up among club partners, reducing the individual workloads for the benefit of all.
Partners contribute a small amount every month, and most clubs operate on a one-partner, one vote agenda. Therefore everyone has an equal say in the club’s operation.
First and foremost, you should know that an average desire to learn far outweighs any experience in investing. So if you’re new to all this, don’t be afraid to join. It takes investors of all levels, working together, to create the best learning environment. An average person, if motivated, can do an excellent job of building wealth on his or her own.
