Nearly 2,000 new WI participants are completing investor education

The Investor Education in Your Workplace® program, pioneered by Wisconsin CUs in 2009, continues this year with perhaps as many as 8,000 participants from nine states. Image

The 10-week online education program, which offers participants unbiased, training in personal finance and investing, has already been run five times since the first pilot program started in Wisconsin.

The latest training cycle began during the fourth quarter of 2012 with continued support and leadership provided by the Investor Protection Trust.

In total, over the last three years more than 100 credit unions and other employer groups in Wisconsin will have participated in the program, helping deliver over 50,000 hours of online investor education to more than 5,000 people in Wisconsin.

The program won a Wisconsin Financial Literacy Award last year as one of the fastest growing, workplace-based investor education programs. Because of its widespread usage, it is expected to stimulate many millions of dollars in new investing nationwide.

The Wisconsin League encourages involvement both in Wisconsin and in other states by sharing our experience through ongoing webinars.
