Welcome to the Traders & Investors Club
Do you have your money invested in a pension fund, a unit trust fund, an equity-based savings plan or an endowment policy? Most of us do. There is over two trillion pounds under management in the UK.
Did you know that over 65% of UK managed funds consistently underperform the market?
Do you realise that these funds charge you an 'initial fee' of up to 7% on all the money that you invest and apply annual management charges of up to 3%? This means that if you invest £1,000 in a fund with a 5% initial fee and the 'normal' annual management charge of 1.5%, your investment is immediately worth £935. Just to restore the value of your investment to breakeven, the fund has to return 7%! Is it any wonder that most funds are underperforming?
Many Index Tracker funds are likewise unable to keep pace with their respective index. One of the largest UK tracker funds is also one of the worst performers. It charges a management fee that is ten times higher than an equivalent fund that does a better job! Are you one of the 95,000 members of this fund with your eye off the ball?
If you have your capital invested in these underperforming funds, you can do something about it. You can take control of your own financial future by learning how to make your own investment decisions. The Traders & Investors Club is run by active traders and investors who help each other to do just that.
Each evening, we invite financial services industry insiders to present a diverse selection of topics of interest to the private investor. Membership of the Traders & Investors Club also offers you the opportunity to network with like-minded individuals and hear first-hand about their successful, and not so successful, investments. You will benefit from the experience of your fellow traders and investors and your knowledge and expertise will be more than welcomed by the rest of us.
Our financial future is far too important to be entrusted to other people, especially when they often underperform the market. Nobody cares about our financial well-being as much as we do ourselves. Therefore, it is necessary for us to take control of our own investments and decide how best to make our money work for us. Furthermore, in today's volatile markets, it is essential that we know how to make money whether the market is going up, down or sideways.
The Traders & Investors Club is a group of active traders and investors who have taken control of their own financial destinies. We offer education, encouragement, mentoring and support in all areas of personal finance for the mutual benefit of all the members as well as the opportunity to network with like-minded individuals.
