Experiencing a breakthrough moment starts with investors deepening their understanding of investing and absorbing financial knowledge through education. Retail investors have the opportunity to start their next big education breakthrough by attending the fourth annual Investor Education Conference by Investools® from TD Ameritrade Holding Corp. (NYSE:AMTD).

Investools Investor Education Conference returns on Aug. 18 - 20, 2014 at the Hyatt Regency in Dallas, Texas. Combining interactive learning, a lineup of industry trailblazers, and a network of professionals eager to interact and exchange ideas, the conference provides a stimulating setting sure to spark breakthrough ideas for investors.

“Understanding investing is only part of the journey,” said Robert Miller, president, Investools. “We have designed this year’s conference to move beyond solely providing education to delivering a complete experience for investors. We are excited to bring to investors an event that lays an educational groundwork, demonstrates our latest technology and innovation and brings together a collection of like-minded professionals to help spur breakthrough ideas.”

The 2014 conference expands the customized conference experience, allowing investors to choose and mix and match between three tracks – Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced - based on their level of investing knowledge.

  • Portfolio management
  • Options trading
  • Futures and forex
  • Top-down market analysis
  • Income strategies
  • Market volatility and probability
  • and more.

The conference features high-profile industry influencers, including oil and gas entrepreneur T. Boone Pickens. Pickens kicks off the conference events in an exclusive on stage interview with CNBC reporter Jackie DeAngelis, addressing investors and industry professionals on energy oriented investment funds, as well as his career and journey in the energy industry. Sam Stovall, chief equity strategist at S&P Capital IQ, and BJ Fogg, innovator and director of Stanford University's Persuasive Technology Lab, will give keynote addresses offering fresh insights and diverse perspectives on investing. Olympic gold medalist and hockey legend Mike Eruzione will send investors off with an inspirational message to conclude the conference events.
