Welcome to the ATVP's website for investor education!

One of the main tasks of the Securities Market Agency (ATVP) is the protection of investors and ensuring the smooth functioning of the capital market in the Republic of Slovenia. To provide best conditions for investors and their assets, it is necessary to pay special attention to education of investors (in addition of protecting their rights) in order to inform them on financial instruments and markets, so they can decide for appropriate investment decisions and avoid the pitfalls.
