JFSC Brings World Investor Week 2017 to Jersey

Thursday 28 September 10:45

JFSC taking part in the inaugural World Investor Week to promote greater education and protection for people making investments.

Running from 2 to 8 October, this worldwide initiative has been launched by the International Organisation of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) of which the JFSC is an active member. Along with fellow regulators across six continents, the JFSC will be delivering a number of activities locally to raise awareness about investor education and protection. Supporting its ongoing work in this area, the JFSC will be engaging with local schools, giving talks to community groups, delivering investorfocused communications and raising awareness on social media to educate pupils and Islanders about investing wisely and looking after their finances.

Mike Jones, JFSC Director of Policy, commented:“This a great opportunity for the JFSC to promote the existing work we do in the Island in the field of investor education and protection. We already offer an education programme for local secondary school students and are now in our third year of going into schools to deliver key messages about financial education under the PSHE curriculum. We also launched our own campaign in January of this year to raise awareness locally about investment mis-selling. This campaign helps us to bolster this good work and continue to drive the message home about making the right investment choices.”

Paul Andrews, IOSCO Secretary General, said: “World Investor Week offers a unique opportunity for IOSCO members to work in collaboration with all investor education and protection stakeholders at both local and international level.”
As part of its World Investor Week activities, the JFSC is hosting a public talk at its offices on 4 October between 10:00 and midday. The session, which is being supported by the Jersey Consumer Council, Trading Standards, the Channel Islands Financial Ombudsman and the Jersey Fraud Prevention Forum, is an opportunity for Islanders to learn more about the regulator’s role, the services available to the public and what the partner agencies can do to help both before Islanders make financial decisions and after if things go wrong.
