Name of event or initiative:Trading Competition
Brief overview of the event or initiative:

The trading competition, run with the UC Business School, gives students the opportunity to ‘invest’ a set amount of money in the market to try and maximise their portfolio value. This year we had sport prizes up for grabs as well as prizes for the top three traders.

What were the aims of the event or initiative?

The competition provides a great opportunity for our members and other students to put their financial knowledge to the test and try to beat the market.

How did you make it happen?

Working with the UC Business School we were able to create a great competition for our members and other UC students. Though none of our events would be a success without the continued support of our dedicated and engaged member base.

How did you make it better?

Due to the success of the competition last year, we didn’t feel that we wanted to make changes.

How did you show your commitment to sustainability?

This event was run entirely online.
