Some of the Beckenham & Bromley MYN group participate in a monthly Investment Club where we each contribute £25 to invest in UK equities. The meetings are normally held on the second Thursday of the month but temporarily will be on the 3rd Sunday during the afternoon. The Investment Club has been running for just under 25 years, but we always welcome new or potential members. Prospective members are given up to three months to decide whether to join as active members.

The choice of which shares to buy, or to sell, is decided by those particpating in tonight's meeting in a majority decision.. The meeting gives everyone a chance to discuss the stock market, the economy or anything else which members have noted could effect the various share prices.

Contact Roland in advance, preferably by e-mail, so that he can send you a link to click on at the start of the meeting.
