This is according to Proclamation No. 846 which declares the second week of November each year as Investor Protection Week or IPW.

This Proclamation was issued in accordance with:

  1. Section 2, Chapter I of Republic Act No. 8799, otherwise known as the “Securities Regulation Code,” declares it a policy of the State to protect investors, ensure full and fair disclosure about securities, and minimize if not eliminate insider trading and other fraudulent or manipulative devices and practices, which create distortions in the free market; and

  2. Section 179, Title XVII of Republic Act No. 11232, otherwise known as the “Revised Corporation Code,” provides the SEC the power and authority to exercise supervision over all corporations and persons acting on their behalf, promote the protection of investors, and to prevent imminent fraud or injury to the investing public.
