Saturday, April 6

The Securities and Exchange Commissioner’s Office of Investor Education and Advocacy (OIEA) is observing the month of April as National Financial Capability Month with the theme, “What does your financial future look like? Having a plan can help answer the question.”

“Investors turn to our capital markets every day, whether to grow a nest egg, plan for retirement, save for an education, or prepare for the inevitable bumps along the way,” said SEC Chair Gary Gensler. “To be an informed investor is to be a more effective investor, and I encourage the public to take advantage of the many resources we offer on”

The commission stated that throughout the month, “SEC leadership and staff will highlight the importance of creating a saving and investing plan to help investors meet their financial goals and will encourage them to take advantage of the free tools and resources available on Investor education events will take place across the U.S. with various audiences, including students, underrepresented communities, older investors, and the military.“

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Director Lori Schock to receive God’s direction as she heads the Office of Investor Education and Advocacy.
  • For wisdom for Chair Gensler as he oversees the SEC’s National Financial Capability Month.
  • For discernment for the president and members of his administration as they promote savings and investing plans.
