Understanding many of today’s investment products and dynamic capital markets can be a challenging task to even the most seasoned investors. That is why the folks at the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission want to hear from Main Street, and they are coming to Atlanta to do just that. You heard that right, Wall Street is coming to Main Street.
On June 13, all of the Commission’s members—the Chairman and four Commissioners-will be hosting a town hall style event with Georgia State University’s College of Law. SEC staff will also be on hand to lead some breakout sessions on topics such as Bitcoin and ICOs, mutual funds and their disclosures, and investing in and raising money for small businesses. Residents in the southeast are invited to attend, and to those who can’t attend in person, a webcast will be available to watch remotely. Be sure to check sec.gov/Atlanta for more event details.
Events like this, when federal regulators step outside the DC Beltway, don’t happen every day. We hope you will join us in person on June 13, where you can meet Chairman Jay Clayton, and Commissioners Kara Stein, Michael Piwowar, Robert Jackson and Hester Peirce, and that you will also pass the invitation along to investors and Americans who you believe will benefit.
