SIGnet Groups

SIGnet is unique in this country, a national network of private investor groups supported and continuously improved by a central organisation.

It is the individual group that is at the heart of SIGnet.

This is because it is in the individual group that a private investor can meet other interested investors in a social and informal atmosphere that leads to greater investment knowledge and skills and, most importantly, gives the opportunity to increase investment performance.

The SIGnet group achieves this because the group and the culture around it are designed to provide an environment in which group members can gain most from each other’s skills, knowledge and ideas. The design of the group is deceptively simple. Every group has a Convener who organises the meetings and a Chair, who may be the Convener or someone else from the group. Both exist to ensure that the meetings are conducted in an open and positive manner. Overlaid on this arrangement is the SIGnet culture and an emphasis on free discussion.

Additionally the SIGnet group is totally autonomous. It decides for itself where and when to meet, how often to meet, what topics to cover, how big the group will be and who joins the group.

All this means that as a member of a group you will hear about and discuss subjects that are relevant to your interests in an atmosphere where all feel able to be part of an open and positive conversation.

This is why SIGnet gives you the opportunity to increase your investing performance.

The Practicalities

There are SIGnet groups nationally with between 6-20 regular members. For the face to face meetings that now occur post-pandemic, groups are mostly based on locality, but there are also zoom groups based on style rather than location. There are also specialist groups dealing with specific investment areas.

Groups meet as frequently as they like, most meet monthly or bimonthly and may change their meeting places and times.

New members are introduced to SIGnet through the National Online Group. This gives us the opportunity to welcome you to SIGnet. We can then consider other groups within the Network which would suit your requirements.

SIGnet groups are not investment clubs, there is no collective investment or group pots, instead each member invests in their own time and in their own way as a purely private matter.

Privacy is paramount, what you invest in and what you are worth are your private affairs. When discussing changes in portfolios there is no discussion of actual figures, percentages are used instead.

The SIGnet group’s emphasis is on investment techniques and knowledge, not tips.

Joining a SIGnet Group

Before joining one of the SIGnet Groups listed below, you need to join SIGnet. Don’t forget, we offer a FOUR MONTH NO QUIBBLE GUARANTEE: if you are not able to join a suitable group or are unhappy with your membership, just let us know within the first four months of your membership and we will refund and cancel your membership.

SIGnet members can express an interest in one of our groups by filling in this short form. Make sure that you are logged in to our website before selecting the form, so that we can validate your membership. See this if you are not sure how to log in.

If you are not yet a member of SIGnet, you can indicate your interest in joining one or more groups when you apply for membership, by filling in the comment box on the application form.

When new or existing SIGnet members express an interest in joining a group, we will inform that group’s Convener. The Convener will then make contact with the applicant and take matters from there.
