Alliance for Investor Education Tool Highlights Key Online Aid for Investors

WASHINGTON, D.C.//July 21, 2008//In order to make it as easy as possible for investors in trouble to find the help they need quickly, the 19-member Alliance For Investor Education (AIE) today launched an updated version of the "one-stop information shopping" site at http://www.HelpForInvestors.org to pull together 14 key links into a single Web page. The easy-to-use list shows investors where to check out financial professionals, how to report investment fraud, the best help for dealing with other major problems – including broker bankruptcies, identity theft and 401(k) claims – and filing arbitration and mediation claims.

The content featured in the updated http://www.HelpForInvestors.org cuts across the entire investment community represented in AIE's membership ranks.

"People have many thousands of pages of excellent information available to them on the Web and our goal is to make sure that investors -- in their hour of greatest need -- can go directly to what they need in order to get help," said Alliance for Investor Education President Michael D. Jones, who also serves as senior executive vice president and chief administrative officer for the Financial Industry regulatory Authority. "As a coalition of government agencies, regulators and trade groups, the Alliance for Investor Education is striving to make the power of the Web work for investors, rather than allowing information that is scattered across a dozen Web sites to escape the attention of those who need it the most."

The key resources pulled together on one Web page for investors at http://www.HelpForInvestors.org are as follows:
