Investor Education

Filed under: Programs & Resources — vtdeptlib @ 11:18 am

A recent query to the VALS listserve about investor education by Deborah Kahn from the Warren Public Library brought to light this great resource.

The Vermont Securities Division (of the Dept. of Banking, Insurance, Securities and Health Care Admin. — BISHCA) has offered investor education presentations to libraries throughout Vermont for about three years.

Typically, the presentations areabout one or all of the following three subjects:

  1. Understanding and Avoiding Investment Fraud
  2. Understanding Investment Products
  3. Selecting Financial Professionals.

The contact person for requesting a presentation is John R. Cronin.  He is a Securities Examiner with BISHCA and you may contact him at: (802) 828-4858

John indicates that he can also speak to some basic investment concepts and financial planning and that he would be more than happy to visit your library to discuss these issues.

Further information from BISHCA about investor education may be found at this web site:
