The SEC protects investors, promotes fairness in the securities markets, and shares information about companies and investment professionals to help investors make informed decisions and invest with confidence. The SEC’s Office of Investor Education and Advocacy provides a variety of services and tools to address the problems and questions you may face as an investor. They cannot tell you what investments to make, but we can help you to invest wisely and avoid fraud. The SEC Military Service Member’s Initiative conducts proactive outreach to educate service members about savings and investment, investment fees and expenses, retirement programs specific to educators and service members, and the red flags of investment fraud.
