The Texas State Securities Board is responsible for regulating the securities industry in Texas and enforcing the Texas Securities Act. We register securities offered or sold in Texas and oversee the firms and individuals selling securities or providing investment advice to Texans. Through our Investor Education initiative, we help our fellow Texans become informed investors.
You can contact the Texas State Securities Board for information about investment scams and fraudulent investments. As part of our commitment to educating Texas investors, we provide a variety of publications and programs, such as Texas Investor Protection Guide and The Texas Family Guide to Personal Money Management.
The Texas Investor Protection Guide provides a wealth of information and resources to help you make informed decisions about choosing your investments, as well as the broker-dealer who may sell you those investments.
The Family Guide to Personal Money Management helps you organize your records and apply sound money management principles. It also describes the risks associated with different types of investments and how to choose appropriate investments to meet your future goals.
For a free copy of these guides, contact the Texas State Securities Board at (512) 305-8305. You can also email the request to investored (at) ssb.state.tx.us.
