Welcome to the Ottawa Share Club (OSC) page on money4retirement.ca.
The OSC is a nonprofit organization that is dedicated to the sharing of financial knowledge. Its mission is to share investment resources and related experiences to enhance members’ varied levels of personal finance and investment knowledge. It is not an investment club.
Its motto: “Share knowledge not capital.”
The Ottawa Share Club is open to new participants and members. Feel free to download the new participant/member letter (PDF format).
The Ottawa Share Club is in its 23rd year of operation.
The OSC usually has eight evening meetings a year covering many topics and features guest speakers, member presentations and round-table discussions. It sometimes features Stock Talk meetings on Monday mornings. View the OSC meeting schedule for dates and times of all OSC meetings.
Here we feature OSC member and guest pages where generous individuals provide their own information for the benefit of other investors. See material about member approaches to portfolio management, how to construct a portfolio, how to pick dividend stocks, the OSC fantasy portfolio reports, the tax treatment of registered accounts in the event of death, Norbert’s gambit, preferred shares and much more.
The OSC has created a fantasy growth and fantasy income portfolio using a “crowd-sourced” approach. They are used for information and fun. These fantasy portfolios, for growth and income, by their very name and nature, are fictional and do not involve real money. They do not constitute investment advice nor a solicitation to buy or sell securities.
Members can propose fantasy portfolio trades to be discussed and voted on at OSC meetings. It’s a great opportunity to observe and participate in various asset selection techniques brought to you by Club members for the benefit of other Club members. To date these discussions have featured asset allocation approaches, fundamental analysis, stock picking and technical analysis.
Or better still come out to a Share Club meeting in Ottawa and participate in person.
