The Tennessee Securities Division provides practical, current information to help investors evaluate an investment opportunity and avoid becoming a victim of fraud. Most of all, we encourage investors to ask the right questions and call us to find out whether the salesperson and the security are registered. An informed and skeptical investor is the best tool to prevent fraud.
In addition to this website, we provide different kinds of investor education outreach programs linked to the Tennessee Security Division's core enforcement and compliance work. Our seminars teach investors how to do their own research and what questions to ask about investments. Speakers are available for community groups and organizations at no charge. A list of our presentations can be found here. Groups interested in scheduling an Investor Education Program representative should contact our office at 800-863-9117.
For questions, feel free to contact the Investment Education Division.
