What Does IFIE and Its Membership Do?

Formed in 2005 to improve investor education on a worldwide basis so that individuals in all jurisdictions are able to make informed choices about financial products and investments, IFIE's mission is of critical importance in this period of global efforts to rebuild and restore trust in capital markets. A group of global leaders and practitioners, IFIE's government, regulatory, private and non-profit organisations work together to recommend and share best practices in investor education across jurisdictions.

IFIE members have opportunities to share expertise in this pioneering effort to strengthen the quality and impact of investor education programmes around the world. IFIE's rapid growth also allows members to develop additional relationships and linkages; share best strategies, practice and implementation; receive e-newsletters and attend webinars; help their investor education professionals develop knowledge and skills; find ways to organize to provide investor education programmes across global-regional jurisdictions and develop capacity to target particular groups of investors such as elders, young people or women.
