Today, we launched a new Chinese Resources page on InvestRight that includes a Chinese-language version of our popular InvestRight Guide to Investing: How to make informed investment decisions.

We translated the Guide to Investing into Chinese as part of our ongoing efforts to reach out to ethnic communities with our investor education programs. Investors also told us that there is a strong need for more information in various ethnic languages to help them make informed investment decisions.

Because the Chinese community is the largest ethnic group in the Lower Mainland, we felt it made sense to translate the guide and provide it to this community in their own language. We hope it will help even more people avoid unsuitable investments and investment fraud.

The guide provides investors with practical information about investing, like:

  • Investment basics and how to research investment products
  • How to research and choose an investment advisor
  • The responsibilities and expectations in working with an advisor
  • How to check an advisor’s registration status, and how to use the Disciplined Persons List

Additionally, the guide includes a chapter on investing in private companies with information about what people need to know when considering these types of investments. Worksheets support each chapter, making the guide easy for investors to use as a research and planning tool.

The worksheets are available individually for download on the Chinese Resources page. On this page, you will also find other resources, like videos, tips on avoiding investment fraud, and contact information if you need to get in touch with the BCSC.

Check it out, and let us know what you think. We plan to add resources in other languages in the near future, so your feedback will help inform how we present this information.
