The BCSC is also encouraging people to explore the new Planning 10: Finances section of its InvestRight.org website.
The new videos are designed to strengthen foundational investing knowledge for retail investors. The videos Informed Investing: Investment Fees and Informed Investing: Titles and Designations break down the importance of asking questions and being informed before making investment decisions.

The BCSC’s award-winning Planning 10: Finances resource and classroom materials are now available on InvestRight.org
