About the Investor Protection Trust
The Investor Protection Trust is a nonprofit organization devoted to independent and unbiased investor education, research, and support of investor protection efforts.
Since 1993, the IPT has worked at the state and national level to provide the independent, objective investor education that Americans need to make informed investment decisions. The IPT also supports research and investor protection efforts that benefit the investing public.
The IPT operates programs under its own auspices and provides grants to underwrite investor education and protection initiatives carried out by state securities regulators and other non-profit organizations. IPT is an independent organization that is funded by donations and does not advertise, promote any business, or sell personal information.
IPT functions under the direction of a Board of Trustees composed of State Securities Regulators or their designees. Current IPT Trustees are:
New Hampshire Bureau of Securities Regulation
Georgia Secretary of State’s Securities & Charities Division
Compliance Division Director
Wyoming Secretary of State’s Office
Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies
