The Investor Protection Trust is a non-profit organization that was established in 1993 as part of a multi-state settlement to resolve charges of misconduct. Their website provides non-commercial investor education materials. Visitors should definitely start their journey to becoming educated investors by reading the "Seven Investor Education Booklets" that can be found in a link on the right hand side of the homepage. The booklets include such topics as "The Basics for Investing in Stocks", "A Primer for Investing in Bonds", and "Maximize Your Retirement Investments". Visitors interested in teaching investing in their classrooms or workplaces should go to the green "Teach Investing" tab at the top of any page. There are many different resources in this section, including a Train the Trainer PowerPoint presentation, as well as unique video series called "Teach Video Segments" that are identified by numbered unit of study and episode number, as well as the key point that the lesson is getting across. Each addresses a question or topic, such "Why invest?", "Understanding Risk and Reward" and "Multilevel Marketing Scam".
