America Saves week

The CFTC is proud to support the 2016 America Saves Week! Thousands of groups throughout the nation are hosting activities this week to help you make more informed financial decisions and avoid fraud. This is a great opportunity for smart investors to refresh their knowledge and run an annual background on their financial pros.

The tools available here empower consumers to check their financial professionals' backgrounds. These checks are essential as savvy investors are among those most likely to be targets of fraud. By running these three simple checks, you can find the following important details about your financial pro:

Registration status - most financial pros/firms must be registered or licensed to conduct business

Disciplinary history - customer complaints, regulatory actions or other infractions will often be disclosed

Employment history - current and past employment experience is available

Participate in America Saves Week and join the millions of people increasing their financial knowledge today!
