Denver (CO) – April 19, 2021 —The Colorado Division of Securities (the “Division”) part of the Colorado Department of Regulatory Agencies is partnering with the Investor Protection Trust and PBS Books to produce “Investing: What’s New & What’s Not” virtual event to livestream on the Department’s Facebook page on Friday, April 23, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. MT.
“Investing: What’s New & What’s Not” is the second of the 12 part virtual event series “When I’m 65 - Boomers to Zoomers: Building A Secure Path to Retirement” that is being brought to Coloradans each month via Facebook livestreaming. This month’s event will feature qualified experts who will discuss new investment options, the tried-and-true investment strategies, and how both can be part of a retirement savings plan. The event will be interactive, allowing participants to ask questions, submit comments and get answers in real time.
“As the economy restarts, it is important to turn our attention back to the investment goals of retirement. All the noise and hard sales tactics can make this confusing and hard,” said Colorado Securities Commissioner Tung Chan. “We hope this month’s episode can help make it easier to understand some of the new products and some of the old ones that can be part of a retirement strategy.”
The “Investing: What’s New & What’s Not” virtual event will livestream on the Department’s Facebook page on Friday, April 23, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. MT and will feature the following:

“Like public television, libraries are an important and trusted community resource. PBS Books has been partnering with libraries for over five years around important topics, and few topics are more important than investing for a secure retirement,” said Rich Homberg, President and CEO of Detroit Public Television. “Bridging this work with the states is an incredible partnership in creating an evergreen landscape of information and resources.”
Michelle Olympiadis, Acting Executive Director of the Investor Protection Trust, said: “Retirement is our single biggest saving goal. It is also one of our most important. The When I’m 65 Boomers to Zoomers program is designed to give every person the tools, resources and information they need to prepare for retirement. We want viewers of all ages to learn about the new investment options and remember the not new strategies so they can build a nest egg that will give them the retirement they want.”
