“Investomania” Public Service Campaign

In June 2022, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s Office of Investor Education and Advocacy unveiled a game show-themed public service campaign to help investors make informed investment decisions and avoid fraud. The campaign titled “Investomania” reminds investors to do their due diligence when making investment decisions.

One of the goals of the “Investomania” campaign, which features a 30-second TV spot, 15-second informational

videos on crypto assets, margin calls, and guaranteed returns, and interactive quizzes, is to reach existing, new, and future investors of all ages. The campaign encourages investors to research investments and get information from trustworthy sources to understand the risks before investing. The campaign also reminders investors to take advantage of the free financial planning tools and information on Investor.gov, the SEC’s resource for investor education.
