The Mutual Fund Dealers Association (MFDA) marked the start of Investor Education Month by publishing an MFDA Investor Bulletin, entitled Understanding Risk.

The bulletin, designed for consumers, looks at the relationship between risk and returns, at risk tolerance and at the different ways an advisor will go about assessing a client’s risk tolerance.

“The MFDA is pleased to participate with the International Organization of Securities Commissions members in World Investor Week, to be part of the global campaign to raise awareness regarding the importance of investor education and protection,” says MFDA president and CEO, Mark Gordon. “Providing tools and resources that promote informed decision making by investors is a key goal of the MFDA under its strategic plan.”

The MFDA encourages investors to access MFDA bulletins, including the understanding risk bulletin, and the MFDA Investor Bulletin on Mutual Fund Fees, in the investor section of its website.
