Our story

ShareSoc is a not-for-profit membership organisation, created by and for individual investors. Its aims are to help improve their investment experience and to represent their interests wherever this is needed.
To do this, it offers a range of educational and informational services, and represents individual investor interests to government. It also offers assistance to shareholders when companies they invest in misbehave and do not act in shareholders’ best interests. It is only by joining together that individual investors can campaign effectively on such matters. ShareSoc wants to ensure that shareholders have their proper say as owners of the businesses in which they invest.
ShareSoc campaigns on both specific company issues and on individual shareholders’ wider concerns. It has been successful in obtaining change at a number of companies since it was founded and has influenced government policy and legislation. You will find details of its campaigns here. In addition, it has advised and supported other shareholder action groups.
Its services include: in-depth company reports, educational resources and networking opportunities – the latter with other investors and with quoted companies, through the events it organises and publicises . It also provides a forum for the interchange of views between individual investors.
