Miami, FL – The Securities and Exchange Commission’s Miami Regional Office will host a series of virtual investor education events during Oct. 5-11, 2020, as part of the fourth annual World Investor Week, a global campaign promoted by the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) to raise awareness about the importance of investor education and protection.

This global effort marks the fourth time that U.S. securities regulators and other IOSCO members on six continents will join together to promote investor education and protection.

Even though we are making presentations virtually this year, we value this opportunity to continue to promote our very important mission.”

The seven day program will include virtual outreach to high school, university, and law students, older adults, and the military. Details of the events are as follows:
