About Us

For more than 100 years, Better Business Bureau has been helping consumers find businesses, brands and charities they can trust. Now BBB has partnered with the FINRA Investor Education Foundation to help prevent investment fraud, which is a growing concern as more and more people manage their own investments.

Through local events, publications and this website, the campaign seeks to protect investors from financial fraud by helping them:

  • recognize they are vulnerable to financial fraud;
  • identify persuasion tactics; and
  • reduce risky behaviors by asking questions and checking information.

Through easy-to-use tools and resources at its website SaveAndInvest.org, the FINRA Foundation helps you make informed financial decisions — and arms you with the information you need to protect yourself from investment fraud.

FINRA, the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority, is an independent, not-for-profit organization with a public mission: to protect America's investors by making sure the securities industry operates fairly and honestly. FINRA believes that investor education is often the best form of investor protection.

Through the FINRA Investor Education Foundation, FINRA provides investors with high-quality, easily accessible information and tools to better understand the markets and the basic principles of saving and investing.

FINRA and the FINRA Investor Education Foundation do not sell investment products, promote products or firms, or offer specific investment advice. For more information, please visit SaveAndInvest.org.
