SEC officials announced Friday that they had launched a Spanish section of the site at www.sec.gov to help Spanish-speaking investors access the agency?s services.
The new section will include:
- spanish translations of the commission’s most popular brochures on investing wisely and avoiding fraud
- links to Spanish investor education resources offered by other government agencies and industry organizations
- a special Spanish e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org from which investors will get Spanish replies. “Ayuda” means “help” in Spanish.
Recent census data shows that the US Hispanic population has increased by more than 50% since 1990, compared with an increase of only 13.2% for the total US population.
