Welcome to the International Forum for Investor Education (IFIE) - Asia Chapter Web page!
Investor education is becoming ever more important to build investor confidence in today's environment where financial innovation is bringing about an ongoing stream of new products and services. It is also essential to promote effective asset management with intensifying uncertainties in the global financial markets, shifting paradigms, and increasing life expectancy.
A rigorous, well-organized financial education system enables consumers and investors to make informed decisions about financial products and investments and take control of their financial future.
Established in 2010 as a regional chapter of the International Forum for Investor Education (IFIE) – an international alliance of private and public sector providers of investor education, the IFIE/Asia Chapter aims to improve investor education in the Asia-Pacific region through enhanced international cooperation and information exchange.
The IFIE/Asia Chapter is committed ensuring a sound investment culture with strong investor protection is instilled throughout the region by promoting investor education and the development of the region's capital markets. To this end, the IFIE/Asia Chapter will serve as a channel for discussion on a wide range of investor education topics and issues facing the region's financial markets.
