"There was such a buzz at the Stock Market Challenge. If a team was looking for something that is fun to do and related to financial services then this is a really good opportunity. I would encourage people to do it."

Kathryn McGown, Human Resources Consultant, Standard Life

"An excellent enrichment task to support learning, and for team-building and numeracy."

John Paul Potter, Business Education Teacher, Ross High School

"Dealing Room served as a great opportunity to reinforce many mathematical terms and concepts. Students developed an understanding of the knowledge and skills relating to a particular industry sector, with its direct relevance to the world of work."

Mark Bouckley, Assistant Headteacher, Hedingham School, Essex

"The Investment Challenge project brings 'real life' experiences to our pupils which are very valuable to this age group.  It is a positive influence."
