WWW.HELPFORINVESTORS.ORG WEB TOOL UPDATED BY ALLIANCE FOR INVESTOR EDUCATION

Key Online Aid for Investors Sponsored by Alliance of Gov't Agencies, Regulators, Foundations and Leading Financial Trade Associations

WASHINGTON, D.C.//July 28, 2010//In order to make it as easy as possible for investors to find the help they need quickly, the 21-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 16 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.

"In their hour of greatest need, investors should be able to get access to key information to help them in one place. We created HelpforInvestors.org so people can go directly to what they need in order to get that help," said Alliance for Investor Education President Dallas Salisbury, who also serves as president and CEO of the Employee Benefit Research Institute (EBRI) and chairman of the American Savings Education Council (ASEC). "As a coalition of government agencies, regulators, nonprofit foundations, trade groups, the Alliance for Investor Education is always striving to make the power of the Web work for investors, rather than allowing tools 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:
