FSL crowned overall winners of the Stock Market Challenge Belfast Final, 2018.

On Tuesday 13th March, four Year 11 students from Friends’ School Lisburn travelled to Belfast to compete in the Belfast regional final of the Stock Market Challenge.

This was the first year the school had entered the competition, but having placed 1st out of 25 schools in qualifying, their expectations were high.

The first part of the competition involved teams having to buy and sell shares in a simulated stock market. Secondly, each team had to present their trading strategy to two judges from CME Group, Belfast.

The team from Friends’ gave a fantastic presentation with the judges commenting, in particular, on how well they articulated their ideas, and were crowned overall winners of the Stock Market Challenge Belfast Final, 2018.
