World Investor Week, an initiative of IOSCO (the International Organization of Securities Commissions), was held between 1 and 7 October 2018. The aim was to promote the education and protection of investors worldwide. The week featured various activities run by supervisory authorities and other stakeholders from 90 countries.
The Financial Services and Markets Authority (FSMA), which is currently vice-chair of IOSCO and member of the IOSCO committee on retail investors, lent its support once again this year to this initiative. It is important in the wake of World Investor Week to continue pursuing its objectives so that discussion of financial topics and attention to financial education remain key priorities.
