SIGnet Newsletter

This page contains a list of the contents of past newsletters issued by SIGnet.

A sample newsletter can be read here.

Once logged in, SIGnet members can access any of the newsletters listed on this page.

The SIGnet Newsletter is published online. To receive our newsletters, join SIGnet.

The monthly newsletter provides news about the organisation, articles of interest to investors and facilitates the sharing of investment ideas.

Alongside the groups’ round-table or Zoom discussions, the newsletter provides a complementary communication channel across SIGnet, all of which helps us to fulfil our mission.

Articles are written by members for members with the intention of generating thoughtful discussion and fresh investment ideas.

This does not constitute financial advice; you must do your own research.

The SIGnet Challenge was created to encourage the sharing of ideas across as many of the SIGnet groups as possible. It is a 12-month competition, with each group starting with an imaginary £100,000 pot. There are limits on the number of companies/investment instruments you can nominate and a limit on the number of transactions made during the year. The total return achieved during the year determines the winner. Progress is reported each month via the newsletter.

The value of the collective experience and knowledge of our total membership can far exceed the sum of our individual knowledge. But only if we choose to make it happen through cooperation.
