World Investor Week: Countries

Qatar

Lead Organization: Qatar Financial Markets Authority

The Qatar Financial Markets Authority (QFMA) is participating in the IOSCO 2017 new initiative - The World Investor Week - as QFMA places a high value on investors' education and protection as it is an integrated part of its mandate. As part of QFMA's strategy to ensure the continuous and stable development of its Capital Market, investor's protection through early education is of prime importance. Hence, the QFMA has chosen to promote the IOSCO World Investor week by displaying its logo in all outbound communications between 2-8 October, 2017; while simultaneously carrying out lectures to students across the public and private universities in Qatar to increase awareness across this youth segment, as well as, recruit volunteers from the youth to positively enhance the medium to long term strategy of financial induction of children and youth in Qatar. Youth volunteers will form a brain-pool to provide inspiration and innovative ideas to communicate the information critical for proper financial awareness across children and youth, while keeping it interesting, attractive and up to date. In addition to that, the QFMA website will display the event including press releases of QFMA's participation in this regard.
