Investment News reports on the formation of the SEC Investor Advisory Committee, which includes BetterInvesting Chairman Roger Ganser. The committee’s goal is to provide a voice for individual investors in SEC policymaking and restore confidence in financial markets. With the recent market turmoil, including problems with Facebook’s IPO, possibly turning investors away from participating in what historically has been a superior way to build wealth over the long term, this committee is needed more than ever.
BetterInvesting is a national nonprofit organization that has been empowering individual investors since 1951. Founded in Detroit, the association (formerly known as National Association of Investors Corporation) was borne out of the conviction that anyone can become a successful long-term investor by following commonsense investing practices. BetterInvesting has helped more than 5 million people become better, more informed investors by providing webinars, in-person events, easy-to-use online tools for analyzing stocks and mutual funds, a monthly magazine and a community of volunteers and like-minded investors.
