Education on sustainable finance helps protect investors against fraud and greenwashing

The Board of the International Organization of Securities Commissions (IOSCO) published a report that identifies recent developments in investor education on sustainable finance, with a view to enhancing investor education and protection and supporting the sound development of this growing financial market.

The report on Retail Investor Education in the Context of Sustainable Finance Markets and Products indicates that securities regulators have increasingly focused on whether sustainable finance claims are accurate and if investors have the information they need to evaluate sustainable finance products. To make informed decisions, retail investors need to understand the characteristics of such products.
