The International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) will celebrate the sixth annual World Investor Week (WIW), from 3 to 9 October 2022, with investor resilience and sustainable finance as its two main themes.
As part of the preparations for the campaign, IOSCO today published the World Investor Week 2021 - Public Report. The report describes real examples of the variety of activities organized and conducted by different participating jurisdictions in 2021, thus providing a useful guide to the range of activities that participating jurisdictions could undertake in 2022.
Although last year's campaign took place under the stringent conditions imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, the participating jurisdictions adapted the format of their campaigns to fit their circumstances (e.g., using a virtual format in some cases or offering in-person activities in others). Moreover, different participants took advantage of the WIW campaign to announce significant local initiatives to enhance investor education and investor protection.
