Year 12 students from Wellington College recently visited the ICMA Centre to spend the day as traders and take part in an ICMA Centre stock market competition.

Just under 20 students engaged in a trading floor simulation, which gave them an insight into the financial markets industry. 17 year old Claudia Rule was crowned the winner and presented with a Trading Champion 2015 certificate.

Dr Ioannis Oikonomou, Programme Area Director of Undergraduate Degrees in Finance, comments:

"It is really important for young people to gain this kind of practical experience and to link what they learn in the classroom to the real world of finance. The students were very competitive and appeared to enjoy the experience very much."
