Consumer Action joins Alliance for Investor Education

Consumer Action is pleased to announce our new membership in the Alliance for Investor Education. Founded in 1996, the Alliance is a non-profit consortium of leading U.S. investor-related non-profit organizations, associations and governmental agencies dedicated to facilitating greater understanding of investing, investments and the financial markets. The Alliance and its allies work to educate and motivate current and prospective investors of all ages by providing access to a full range of unbiased, objective information.

Members of the Alliance contribute to a trove of educational materials (which can be found on the Alliance’s Investor’s Clearinghouse website), including (but not limited to) articles on how to save for retirement (from navigating mutual funds to opening a 401(k)), the dangers of alternative investments (like gold or Bitcoin) and how to avoid becoming a victim of financial fraud.

As a member of the Alliance for Investor Education, Consumer Action is now on the organization’s membership roster alongside such esteemed organizations as the Financial Industry Regulation Authority, the Investor Protection Trust and the American Association of Individual Investors.

“Partnering with the Alliance for Investor Education is a natural fit based on our decades of work educating consumers on financial and marketplace issues,” said Consumer Action Executive Director Ken McEldowney. “We’re excited to collaborate with the Alliance and, together, benefit an even larger audience of consumers with our multilingual educational materials, enriching interactive trainings and more.”
