    Governance of an investment club is key to its long term survival. We encourage investment

    Clubs to formulate a set of rules and regulations (called “by- laws”) which are mutually agreed

    by all members. dfcu Bank has developed a generic set of by-laws that cover most of the

    areas of interest for any investment club. It is available at all dfcu branches at no cost.

    However, members are encouraged to amend it to suit the clubs’ specific needs, preferably

    with the advice of a lawyer.

  • Where can I get potential Investment Club members from?

    You don’t have to look far from your social circles; workmates, peers, friends and family

    members, are often some of the best circles to consider when starting an investment club.

    This ensures that the ties that bind the partners are deeper than just business.
