Bogleheads is a global community for investors and people interested in learning about personal finance. It includes an online forum.
The community was born from the John C. Bogle Center for Financial Literacy. Its main goal is to provide easily accessible education in the world of investing and personal finance.
One way they attempt to accomplish this goal is by maintaining the community's online forums. It includes four main sections: US investors, Non-US investors, Wiki, and Community. Bogleheads offers a Spanish version of the forum for investors living in Spain or other Hispanic countries.
As a global community, it offers local chapters for US and non-US investors. Indeed, you can explore a calendar with detailed information about those upcoming events to see if some of them are near you. However, most of the events are virtual.
Additionally, Bogleheads offers a wiki and a reference library. It contains essays, stories, books, financial calculators, and other useful tools for the everyday investor. Last but not least, the community hosts an annual paid conference, usually in October. You can register and buy your tickets online.
