ShareSoc is dedicated to the support of individual investors. Our aim is to make and keep you better informed so as to improve your investment skills, and protect the value of your investment. We won’t shirk from tackling companies, the Government or other institutions if we think you are not being treated fairly.
The ShareSoc Informer is the monthly newsletter of the UK Individual Shareholder Society. There is a real need to encourage direct investment in the UK stock market, but individual investors will be discouraged if their rights and needs are ignored. One reason why ShareSoc was formed was to ensure that there is more active representation of your interests to government, companies and other institutions.
