Is there a U.K bogleheads Chapter??

Post by LongTermInvestor88 » Thu Jan 11, 2018 5:14 pm

Hi all

Just wondering if there is a U.K bogleheads chapter? Or easier way to gain advise and hopefully assist each other. I'm new to investing via Vanguard UK and sold on Boglehead guide to investing and read Common Sense investing but am not finding it easy to set up or decide on portfolio design with the choice of funds available within Vanguard U.K. Any help appreciated

Let's see if we get some responses to your thread. If we get five or more who want to establish a Local Chapter and one of you wants to be the Local Chapter Coordinator, then let me know and I'll get your group established and put your contact info on the Local Chapters map so others can find and contact you.

We currently have non-US Chapters in Paris, Dubai, Hong Kong and Taiwan and it would be nice to get one established in the UK as well.

Good luck!

Hi all,

I’ve just joined and have just gon through the motions of adjusting my pension portfolio to try and maximise potential for the future.

Interested and excited to learn more and what the forum has to offer, from south UK originally but in Scotland now.

Cheers

All we need now is for one of you to agree to be the Local Chapter Coordinator. That person doesn't have to be an investing guru. Rather, the Coordinator simply communicates with the other members about meeting dates, locations, times, etc. That communication can take place right here on this thread.

If you're willing to become the Chapter Coordinator, just PM me and we'll get your group up and running and add your group to the Local Chapters Map so others can find and contact you.

Best regards,

Mel

Currently located in Lancashire. Anyone nearby?

Hello - just joined - and based in Scotland.

Question/comment - I can understand the need for a coordinator to establish a chapter - but is it essential to get a UK dedicated forum area established on the site? I'm guessing there are a limited number of UK users but difficult to tell, as the site membership list does not display any details on user country/location.

The few that have expressed interest on this thread probably dispersed across UK and any face-to-face meetings potentially unlikely and therefore I'm assuming most exchanges likely to be through forum only.

Have recently setup my first Vanguard UK account and fund and now considering next steps. Currently have a small portfolio of both 'passive' (Vanguard) and 'active' (an historical IFA relationship) - so keen to learn from others before taking next steps on my own.

Are there enough UK members from any one area to establish a Local Chapter that would meet in person? If not, we do have a Virtual Local Chapter that meets online. The time difference might be a factor, though.

Use this link and scroll down to Local Chapter #73 for more info.

Re these virtual conferences for Chapter 73 and the time difference with UK members - do you ever record them live and then post a link to allow others to view the recording after the event?

I believe Webex or alternatives allow screen and voice recording real-time and subsequent sharing by linking to the saved recording file - if the file is located in an appropriate internet location that others can easily access afterwards.

Is such a thing possible?
