Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands (3 October 2022) The Cayman Islands Monetary Authority (“CIMA” or the “Authority”) joins the International Organization of Securities Commissions (“IOSCO”) and regulators from over 100 jurisdictions to celebrate World Investor Week 2022.
World Investor Week is a global initiative promoted by IOSCO to raise awareness about the importance of investor education and protection. The global campaign consists of week-long outreach activities carried out by participating IOSCO member jurisdictions.
CIMA will participate in the initiative from 3 – 9 October with an online campaign that is designed to promote financial resilience and help investors make sound decisions.
As a member of IOSCO, CIMA recognises the importance of investor education and considers this campaign a good opportunity to promote smart investment strategies within the Cayman Islands’ financial services community as well as the general public. This campaign will serve as an introduction to a larger initiative on investor education the Authority has planned under the theme “I Learned the Hard Way”. More details will follow in the coming weeks.
Key messages for World Investor Week will focus on investor resilience and sustainable finance, highlighting the importance of having an emergency fund and understanding that all investments entail risk as well as considering what sustainable finance entails.
Such messages will be issued online throughout the week via CIMA’s website, and on social media platforms LinkedIn and Facebook. The industry and public can take part in World Investor Week by sharing messages across online platforms to enhance the effectiveness of these valuable messages.
