Internet for Investors Course

Do you make the most of the internet when investing? Are your investments based on the most intelligent research and can you easily monitor them using the internet? Even if you use the internet extensively already, you might be missing out on many useful information resources.

Our new training course entitled “The Internet for Investors” aims to improve your skills in this area. It will cover:

  • News and alerting services.
  • SharesSoc’s own websites and member network.
  • Fundamental data & portfolio analysis sites (four sites will be covered).
  • Discussion sites and bulletin boards (there are gems to be found amongst the dross!).
  • Online share dealing.
  • Social media for investment.

This is very much a hands-on training session and attendees will receive individual help to enable you learn how to make the most out of the resources and tools available. To facilitate this, we are holding this course at the well equipped computer laboratory of the University of Westminster, Marylebone Campus, conveniently located opposite Baker Street Station, London.

The course will be held on 25th June, from 11:00 – 16:30. A sandwich lunch will be provided. On the day, the registration desk for delegates and a welcome tea/coffee will be available from 10:30. For those who would also like to attend the ShareSoc growth company seminar, held the same evening, there is a direct underground link from Baker Street to Liverpool Street, making it easy to do.

This is a chargeable event as a lot of effort has been put into its preparation, but think how much profit you miss out on by picking poor investments! Full members of ShareSoc may purchase tickets for this course at a reduced price. Associates and others will receive a year’s free Full ShareSoc Membership by purchasing a normal price ticket.
