Our Level 3 Business students are celebrating after making £1510 on the stock market as part of their financial analysis skills development.
The students were challenged to achieve the largest gains on a £1000 investment over a period of three months, by closely watching the FTSE and managing their investments.
It wasn’t an easy task as the students had to monitor their shares very closely and study the economy in order to look for possible rises or falls in prices. However, their hard work paid off, and they proved they had what it takes to achieve make money on their investment with this amazing result!
One member of the winning Team Chelsea Woodcock said, “We watched the share prices of the businesses that we invested in and monitored them to see if they were worth selling or not. We are very pleased with the outcome of the investment club and we are delighted that we have won after all our hard work”.
Learning Standards Manager Gary Munson-Pike said: “The students used some of the financial analysis skills they have learnt during in the year on the course and applied them to great effect to achieve an impressive result . Very well done!”
