What we're about

We are the Silicon Valley Chapter for the American Association of Individual Investors (AAII) (http://www.aaii.com) and our mission is to educate and empower individual investors in their quest for achieving financial independence. To that end, we strive to bring compelling and accomplished speakers to present timely, relevant and actionable information on personal financial planning, wealth building, and investing.

Want to easily get started? Join this Meetup group and you will be notified of future meetings and events. Beginners and advanced investors are welcomed!

The AAII Silicon Valley Chapter holds several monthly events:

* Main Events features renowned speakers on a variety of topics! A nominal fee of $10 to attend covers the overhead of speaker costs, facility rental and event expenses.

* Free to attend: Special Interest Group (SIG) Meetups meet monthly on four topics: 1. Financial Planning SIG; 2. Investment Discussion SIG; 3. Computerized Investing SIG; and 4. FinTech SIG.

We are not here to sell anything - only to create an open and friendly environment for like-minded people to learn, share and explore investing. We are an all-volunteer organization and are always seeking additional members who can help with various planning and administrative issues.
