Students have been working in teams to invest £100,000 of virtual money in stocks and investment instruments that fluctuate in line with the real stock exchange. They have worked together very well as a team and have managed to beat some of the top schools in the UK. First prize includes £2,000 prize money for their school and £200 for each team member. The trip to New York would include excursions to the financial district as well as some of the famous landmarks – so obviously students are excited at the opportunity. Keep your fingers crossed for the boys:
- Donald Matthews
- Ross Wylie
- Scott Nelson
An extra congratulations to Donald Matthews who is also part of the Accounting team to make it through to the National finals of the ICAEW BASE Challenge in Birmingham this summer.
