You become a Member of Arsenal Fanshare Society by:
Your monthly investments mount up in your account until you have saved enough to cover the cost of a Fanshare, at which time the Fanshare is transferred to your account and any money left over remains in your account towards the cost of your next Fanshare.
You can stop and restart your investing at any time.
You may sell your Fanshares and exit the scheme at any time, but cannot sell only some of your Fanshares and remain within the scheme with your others.
It's important to understand that a charge of 2% is made on all money you invest, to cover the ongoing costs of the professional administration of the scheme's financial operation. Should you decide to exit the scheme, a final administration charge of £50 is made.
