USEFUL INTERNET INFORMATION SOURCES
The internet contains masses of useful information, mostly free, for investors. But even with a search engine it is not always easy to find what you desire and there is no filtering by quality using such systems. This page and the associated ones aims to recommend those sites that we know are useful and are certainly worth looking at. Obviously there is considerable overlap between some of them, and we don’t claim to cover all relevant sites (if you know of others you can recommend, please advise). ShareSoc is not responsible for the operation of any web sites reached via these links, and provides no warranty as to the accuracy or quality of the information or services provided therein. If any links fail repeatedly then please let us know so that we can correct them.
Some of these links will include paid for services. But we generally do not cover stockbroking services, IFAs, mutual funds, insurance companies, banking services and other similar commercial services. The emphasis here is on free or low cost information services and public bodies or other institutions that may support investors and which have a good reputation. We exclude bulletin boards that are not adequately monitored for abuse or services with poor privacy policies.
The links are grouped under the headings below, but are in no particular order within each group. Click on the name to go to the relevant web page.
