On Tuesday April 29, 2014, Investor Advocacy Clinic student interns Scott Evans, Benjamin Stubbs and Patricia Uceda presented “Guidance for your Investment Journey” to a group of Georgia State University College of Law students.
Stubbs began by discussing the need to create a plan and start to save now. He asked the audience to identify their long term goals, which included paying off student loans, retiring and saving for a house.
Evans then discussed the professionals who can help investors meet their goals. He outlined the different services such professionals can provide and showed the audience how to do research on them by using FINRA’s BrokerCheck tool. Participants also learned how to decode different certifications and learn what they mean by using FINRA’s Professional Designations Database.
Uceda provided an overview of the products investors might consider to reach their goals. After analyzing whether the participants were at risk of fraud, the interns showed them how to be prepared to respond to fraudsters’ tactics and hang up on fraud.
