INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (WTHI) – On Wednesday, Secretary of State Connie Lawson launched the Indiana MoneyWise financial literacy program.

This program was formerly known as Indiana Investment Watch. It is focused on improving Hoosiers’ financial literacy and protecting investors from scams.

Now, this program will expand its focus and content to place areas of emphasis on smart money management.

“As I travel around the state presenting on the topic of financial literacy, it is clear more Hoosiers want help making smart money decisions beyond just investing,” said Secretary Lawson. “When Indiana Investment Watch was launched, it was limited to spotting and avoiding scams. Now we have broadened our focus and introduced our newest resource, the Indiana MoneyWise e-magazine.”

Throughout the magazine, there are tips and links to resources to help Hoosiers make wise money decisions.

In the “Fraud Stoppers” section, readers can learn more about investment fraud scam artists recently brought to justice by the Secretary of State Securities Division.

Each month, the magazine will have a new focus. This first edition of the e-magazine will focus on saving money and staying on budget when preparing to go back to school.
