Financial regulators are responsible for helping protect and educate you as an individual investor. On their websites, you may find helpful knowledge- and skill-building financial education information to download. Most have an Investor Alert section with information on how to protect yourself against the latest financial scams and frauds.

This section will give you information and criteria by which various types of financial advisors are supervised, registered, certified—and what you can do if you have a complaint or concern about a financial professional’s conduct.
