Read me first!

Welcome to the DIY investors’ forum.

DIY refers to ‘Do it yourself’. This forum is an online community of investors who would like to manage their money on their own!


The aim of the forum can be summed up the popular adage, which in its original form reads:

If you give a man a fish he is hungry again in an hour. If you teach him to catch a fish you do him a good turn.


So our aim as a community is to focus on fishing techniques rather provide fish.

All are welcome! It does not matter whether you are an advisor or an investor who has sought the advice of an advisor.


The main aim of the community is to spread the message that:

money management is simple. No one cares about your money as  you do. So take action, perform simple initial steps and set up an auto-pilot. Keep it simple, ignore noise, and focus on other hobbies or interests (instead of obsessing about personal finance) 


Members should encourage each other and the investor community in general to nurture confidence and conviction to take independent financial decisions.

You can explore the categories on the right to see what we are up to here.
