Members from the alliance, which include more than 60 organizations of regulators, SROs, central banks industry associations, non-profit programme providers and other interested stakeholders from 35 countries, elected the three IFIE officers the day before the opening of the 2015 IFIE-International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) Global Investor Education Conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
IFIE has accomplished a great deal in a very short period of time, and working together with partners such as IOSCO, I know we will accomplish great things over the next two years.
Leoni also is a member of the Advisory Board of the IFIE and is chairwoman of the IFIE/Americas Chapter.
IFIE and IOSCO held their fourth major conference in May 2012 in Seoul, South Korea, and the fifth such event in Toronto, Canada in June 2013.
IFIE also has a global regional Chapter network of members in Asia (IFIE/AFIE), MENA (IFIE/MENA) and the Americas (IFIE/Americas) that work together to develop and implement approaches to regional challenges in financial education, financial capability and investor education.
