Well, this is it! Today, we finally take the covers off our redesigned website – InvestRight.org.

All summer we have been working behind the scenes to revamp our website to improve how we can help investors protect themselves from scams, avoid unsuitable investments and make more informed investment decisions.

As our director of communications and education points out: “The plethora of Ponzi schemes and investment fraud over the past couple of years has made the public painfully aware of how easy it is to get caught up in a bad investment.”

As the province’s securities regulator, our job is to help people better protect themselves against investment scams. That said, we also want people to look to us when they need help with their investments, such as when they want to know what questions they should be asking about their portfolios or what they should consider when choosing an investment advisor.

We hope the revamped website allows people to do all of this better through a fresh, smart design with better navigation and easier access to all the content that you have come to expect in our former web offering. In addition, we have added new content about high-risk investment products and investing in the private companies – topics that we know people have questions about when it comes to investing.

So please take a tour through and let us know what you think about our new InvestRight.org website.
