PCAOB Protects: Engaging With Investors

Engaging with investors is a critical part of how the PCAOB fulfills its investor-protection mission. We invite investors to check out our investor-focused resources, sign up for our investor updates, and reach out directly to our Office of the Investor Advocate. 

Investor protection lies at the heart of the PCAOB’s statutory mission. We accomplish that mission by promoting high-quality audits through our standard-setting, inspections, and enforcement programs. As part of our mission, we also aim to provide relevant information to investors and to engage with them on PCAOB activities that may be of interest.  

The Office of Investor Advocate

The Office of the Investor Advocate was established to help the PCAOB Board incorporate investors’ perspectives in the PCAOB regulatory agenda and enhance the PCAOB's engagement with investors and investor advocates.
