Catch the Waves of Investor Protection

Posted on Sep 23, 2021 in Investor Education Program

The state Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs (DCCA), Office of the Securities Commissioner (OSC) is kickstarting its monthlong campaign, “Catch the Waves of Investor Protection: Investor Education for ALL”, in conjunction with World Investor Week. Rolling in sets, the office invites consumers of all ages to charge the waves of information featuring financial and investor education-related activities, presentations and resources.

We are offering information and activities virtually – online and through social media. The public is encouraged to make the drop and follow @HISecurities on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for the word of the day and daily posts sharing fraud prevention tips, financial literacy facts, consumer education information, and more. In addition to the daily posts, we have lined up barrels of information for each week in October.

World Investor Week, which falls on October 4 – 10, 2021, is a global campaign promoted by the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) to raise awareness about the importance of investor education and protection. During this time, our national partners, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, Commodity Futures Trading Commission, National Futures Association, Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, North American Securities Administrators Association and supporters are working together with interested government agencies, localities, and organizations to promote World Investor Week 2021 (WIW 2021) and its goals in the United States.
