Gary R. Mottola,
Research Director, FINRA Investor Education Foundation
"What Every Investor Needs to Know"
As I pen this note, there's one month to go in 2017 and the market's positive momentum continues its
upward march. Our Chapter's series of 10 presentations throughout this past year have certainly provided
additional insights and tools to help grow our investment portfolios, and I look forward to continuing
this outstanding track record by offering an impressive line-up of financial speakers in 2018! We
kickoff the New Year with Dr. Gary Mottola, FINRA's Director of Research, who will share his unique
insights on FINRA's role as the single largest independent regulatory body for securities firms
operating in the United States. Protecting investors by ensuring the U.S. securities industry
operates in an honest and fair manner underpins a wide range of interesting activities, so we
anticipate a very lively discussion. Please bring a friend and join us for our super continental
breakfast and world-class investment arena information!
Wishing you and yours a wonderful
Holiday Season and a Happy New Year!
Steven J. Arquiette, President, AAII Washington DC Metro Chapter
