It’s SmartCheck Week: Make It the Week You Increase Your Financial Knowledge

Posted by CFTC Staff /
Smartcheck week 11-17

April is National Financial Capability Month and the CFTC is proud to host its second annual SmartCheck℠ Week, April 11-17. When it comes to checking the background of your financial professional, you shouldn’t take a “one and done” approach. It’s wise to check the background of the individual or entity at least annually, and this week is the perfect time. Take advantage of the free tools on to learn more about who is handling your investments, including their registration status, job history, and disciplinary actions. Connect with us during SmartCheck Week and every day on Facebook and Twitter for easy access to tips and tools.
