    "Unleash your potential. It’s your time to win" – that’s how the 15th annual Investment Game greets its players this year. The biggest and oldest online stock market simulation in the Baltic States starts on the 19th of March. The game allows participants to build up and improve their investing skills and gives them a chance to compete for superb prizes.

    The Investment Game is organized by the Investment Fund of the Stockholm School of Economics in Riga, in cooperation with Rietumu Banka. The purpose of the game is to boost young people’s interest in finance and economics and to provide them with an opportunity to test their investing knowledge with no risk in the real market environment.

    The game will consist of two rounds, where only the top 500 performers in the first round will be able to compete for the grand prize in the second round. Each registered player will be given an opportunity to manage up to three portfolios, each worth 10,000,000 EUR. Contestants will be allowed to trade in more than 15 different stock exchanges and trade not only stocks but ETFs and financial derivatives as well.

    The organizers of the Investment Game would also like to invite university and business school students to participate in a new team-based competition called the 49ers’ Challenge. The rules and conditions are the same as for the Investment Game. Teams of up to 5 will compete for the distinction of their represented organizations as well as the chance to win a valuable and prestigious prize — a pure gold coin.

    Both the Investment Game and the 49ers’ Challenge are completely free of charge. Those who manage to achieve the highest portfolio return in both the first and second rounds will be rewarded not only with esteem and additional knowledge, but also with monetary prizes. Top performers will share a prize pool of 2500 EUR. Furthermore, weekly winners will be rewarded with books about finance generously provided to us by NASDAQ OMX.
