Student Investor Challenge

The Student Investor Challenge is a competition between students in schools studying finance in the UK and abroad where teams are given £100,000 of virtual money to invest in shares across two portfolios. The top 351 teams who make the biggest combined profit from each portfolio progress to the semi-finals.

We came 186th out of the 4856 teams who took part and have progressed to semi-finals which will run over the next three weeks at which point the leading 8 teams will go through to the final in the City of London to compete head to head for a trip to New York and cash prizes for the school and for us.
