Associate Membership is FREE but you receive only a summary newsletter, may be charged more to attend ShareSoc meetings and otherwise do not obtain the full benefits of membership. All we ask is that you have an interest in stock market investment and support our aims.

Full Membership of ShareSoc, which gives you ALL the benefits of Membership, costs less than 90p per week. Full Members receive a 16-page or larger monthly newsletter focused on topics of particular interest to private investors including reports on companies that you can’t obtain anywhere else. Full Members can also join our on-line forums, get priority when booking attendance at our meetings, obtain free advice and otherwise get involved in our activities. You also gain access to a number of special discounts available from partner organisations. See here for more details: Member Offers. Full Members also have voting rights in the organisation and elect the directors.

We encourage you to join as a Full Member so as to provide some financial support to the operations of ShareSoc. Though we are a not-for-profit organisation, we do require this support for our campaigning activities and to serve our members directly.

SIGnet membership (or combined ShareSoc Full and SIGnet membership) offers access to the SIGnet investor group network. Through this network, you gain the opportunity to expand your experience and knowledge through meeting other investors in friendly self managed groups. SIGnet members also benefit from an exclusive newsletter and dedicated SIGnet member forums. Go here to learn more about SIGnet. You can join SIGnet on a trial basis free of charge, for a period of four months after joining. Thereafter a SIGnet membership fee of £25 (£15 extra, if you are already a ShareSoc full member) becomes payable, to continue your SIGnet membership. SIGnet membership alone includes all the benefits of associate membership of ShareSoc and carries voting rights in ShareSoc.

Click on one of the options opposite to obtain the immediate benefits of Membership. To take up combined ShareSoc/SIGnet membership, please join as a full member first and then also click on the SIGnet option to apply for SIGnet membership additionally. We will then upgrade your membership status to combined automatically.
