Who truly protects the average American investor? Our financial regulators are licking their wounds and playing catch up from seemingly 20-plus years of being asleep at the wheel. Banks and brokers are fighting tooth and nail against instituting a fiduciary code of conduct. Why do more and more investors not trust Wall Street? Where should one turn to navigate this corner of our economic landscape?

Given the unprecedented developments in the economy and markets, Helen has focused tremendously on the organization that is charged with protecting investors. No, not the SEC, not FINRA, but rather the Securities Investor Protection Corporation (SIPC). How is SIPC doing? How well are you protected? If you are an investor or care about the markets, you do not want to miss this show.
Please join us for what will assuredly be a riveting conversation covering SIPC and more with Helen Davis Chaitman.
