World Investor Week is a global initiative organised by the International Organisation of Securities Commissions (IOSCO).
We are committed to supporting this annual initiative which raises awareness about the importance of investor education and protection. It also highlights the various activities that securities regulators undertake in these two critical areas.
The week-long campaign offers a unique opportunity for IOSCO members to work in collaboration with all investor education and protection stakeholders, at both the local and international level.
Each year IOSCO securities regulators and other IOSCO members on six continents provide a range of activities, such as launching investor-focused communications and services, promoting contests to increase awareness of investor education initiatives, organising workshops and conferences, and conducting local / national campaigns in their own jurisdictions.
The two primary objectives are:
to share key messages that support investor education, investor protection and financial literacy
