Welcome to the web site of the CAMRA Member's Investment Club.
Have you ever wished that you owned part of a brewery or one of the many pub chains now in existence?
We turn that dream into a reality and as shareholders we help try to make a difference to the company policies introduced by their directors.
We started investing in breweries in 1989 and now have approximately 3,500 members in the Club. At the end of February 2019 the fund value was over £22m with a unit value of £5.44.
If you are a member of CAMRA come and join us at the CAMRA Members' Investment Club.

2019 Brewery visits
Trips for 2019 are now being planned. The trip to Butcombe has now been confirmed - see Events page. The trip to Belhaven has been delayed due to construction work and will now not take place until after May. The web site will be updated as soon as details of any other visits are finalised. A trip to Thwaites has now been arranged for October - again, see the Events page.
The 2019 Annual Report and Accounts will be sent out in April as usual and these include your Tax Certificate - please retain your Annual Statement as it is not always possible to obtain a replacement copy. With effect from April this year we will be implementing a £10 charge for copies.
CAMRA National Executive
Good news about one of the Club's long standing members, Lynn Atack. At the CAMRA AGM held in Coventry on last April she was elected on to the National Executive and she polled the highest number of votes. Lynn is a very keen supporter of the CMIC International trips.

Please note there is now a contact phone number if the office is closed or if the office phone is unanswered for any reason. You can call 07547 985077 to leave a message.
Past performance is not a guide to future performance. Price movements may cause the capital value of an investment and the income derived from it to go down as well as up and investors may get back less than they originally invested. If in doubt investors should seek professional advice before joining the Club.
