In order to protect yourself, your family and your financial future, it is good to be informed about where your money is going when you invest. The Securities and Exchange Commission's (SEC) Investor.gov website helps people invest wisely and avoid fraud. The main SEC website at www.sec.gov offers comprehensive information about companies and advisors, as well as the latest information relevant to the regulated securities industry. Also, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) offers assistance and guidance to servicemembers and the public on a variety of financial issues.
