In a Feb. 4 discussion on investment clubs on the Fox Business Network’s “The Willis Report,” BetterInvesting CEO Kamie Zaracki said members of the nonprofit organization haven’t joined any exodus of smaller investors from the stock market.
“I would argue that BetterInvesting members, when that market was down in 2008-2009, they were on a buying spree, and a lot of BetterInvesting members are doing very well in their portfolios right now,” Kamie tells host Gerri Willis.
Kamie also explains that investment clubs are a “great way to learn about investing,” and that BetterInvesting teaches members how to choose and evaluate quality stocks. She adds that over its 62 years of existence, BetterInvesting has taught more than 5 million people to become “successful lifetime investors.”
“The Willis Report” interview followed a Feb. 3 article on investment clubs that appeared in The Wall Street Journal.
BetterInvesting is a national nonprofit organization that has been empowering individual investors since 1951. Founded in Detroit, the association (formerly known as National Association of Investors Corporation) was born out of the conviction that anyone can become a successful long-term investor by following commonsense investing practices. BetterInvesting has helped more than 5 million people become better, more informed investors by providing webinars, in-person events, easy-to-use online tools for analyzing stocks and mutual funds, a monthly magazine and a community of volunteers and like-minded investors.
