Your team of five Year 10 students will be competing against other schools during a session of simulated trading on the financial markets, making decisions under pressure, taking calculated risks and experiencing the excitement of the trading floor.
This enjoyable and rewarding challenge will give your students an insight into career opportunities within the financial services sector and help them develop important skills such as communication, problem-solving and working with others.
All participating schools will be given free use of the Global Investor Simulations - Finance Lab, Dealing Room and Trading Floor – for the year. The resource licence has been sponsored by HSBC.
The resource has applications for 14-19-year-olds in Applied Maths, STEM, Business Studies and Economics so schools should find it to be a valuable asset across the curriculum.
Applied Maths, STEM, Business Studies, Economics, Key Skills, Financial Capability, Enterprise, and Work-related Learning.
Sustainability at HSBC is about our long-term contribution: how we value our employees, help customers realise their ambitions in life and manage our environmental impact. It is also about investing in the communities we serve. We are pleased to be working with schools and associated with such a worthwhile project as Stock Market Challenge.

"Our students gained in self-confidence from reaching the final of this prestigious competition. It also gave them a taste of the real world of finance."
Iolo Jones, Psychology Teacher, Ysgol Gyfun Glantaf
We used Trading Floor for an enterprise day which involved all years on a carousel basis. The students absolutely loved it - the competition between groups was immense! The high quality resources gives the game a professional look and makes the students think it is far more realistic. It gives students a valuable application of Maths in the real world.
Simon Hetherington, Head of Mathematics, Al Yasmina School
“We use Dealing Room and Finance Lab in our first year BA Accounting & Finance course to help develop students' academic and employability skills, in particular communication, teamwork and numeracy. Student feedback has demonstrated that the simulations make an invaluable contribution to their self-development.”
Helen Hall, Programme Tutor, Accounting & Finance, University of Hertfordshire
