From law enforcement to consumer advocates, the FINRA Foundation has trained thousands to detect, prevent, and respond to financial fraud. Moreover, the Foundation and its partners are at the forefront of research to better understand the prevalence and types of financial frauds committed in the U.S., behavioral and neurological risk factors, and the effectiveness of interventions aimed at protecting consumers.

Topics include what constitutes a security, hallmarks of investment fraud schemes, investigative strategies for working with victims and perpetrators, and fraud prevention resources.
