A team of Year 13 students have progressed into The Student Investor Challenge semi-finals this year after beating over 9000 teams from schools around the UK and abroad.
The Student Investor Challenge, run by The London Institute of Banking & Finance, challenges teams of students to invest virtual money on the London Stock Exchange and trade stocks and shares to make a profit.
‘Year 13 Heroes’ consisting of students Amaad Abbas, Samir Sarfraz, Haseeb Ul-Haq and Haroon Ahmed successfully invested virtual money and finished in the top 200 in the UK after the first round of trading. Only the top 500 teams progress to the semi-finals.
They will now go on to battle the remaining 499 teams to try and reach the final in London. The semi-finals begin on 17th February and last for four weeks. Good luck!
