Methodology

Finance Lab and Dealing Room are both dual screen simulations, which provide a valuable complement to programs linked to the real financial markets.  

They approach investing from a different perspective to tracking programs because they simulate the experience of trading in an immersive game environment rather than simply replicate the technical process. In other words they create an ‘open’ rather than a ‘closed’ game system.

By integrating the trading and research functions in one dual screen program, and thereby channeling the flow of news and data, the experience of financial markets trading is transformed into an experiential learning activity and skills development tool. 

The elements of time-pressure and team competition provide the added dimensions to help recreate an authentic dealing room atmosphere.
