TOPEKA — Kansas Insurance Commissioner Vicki Schmidt and Securities Commissioner Dan Klucas on Monday announced the launch of the newly redesigned SmartInvestKS.com. The website is part of an investor education initiative designed to help Kansans invest wisely and avoid investment fraud. SmartInvestKS.com’s sports-themed twist on fraud prevention and investor education is designed to promote integrity within the investment industry and empower rookie and veteran investors alike.
“Over a century ago, Kansas became the first state in the country to passlaws protecting consumers and their investments,” said Insurance Commissioner Vicki Schmidt. “The investment world looks different than it did back then but our commitment to protecting Kansans remains steadfast.”
SmartInvestKS.com educates Kansans by mimicking the life of a football player from drafted rookie to on-field pro. Whether an investor is just coming off the bench or a seasoned professional, SmartInvestKS.com coaches individuals on ways to safeguard their personal wealth by chalking up the X’s & O’s of fraud prevention.
“The financial damage inflicted by investment fraud can rarely be undone,” said Securities Commissioner Dan Klucas. “Protecting your hard-earned savings needs to happen before the fact, not after. SmartInvestKS.com is designed to combat deceptive behavior by giving Kansans the tools needed to recognize and reject fraud attempts.”
