The Game

While you teach your students about investing and the Sharemarket, they can put into practice what they are learning by participating in the Sharemarket Game. Students receive a virtual $50,000 they can invest over a 10 week period, in over 300 companies listed on the ASX. The prices students buy and sell at are the same prices as they would get in the live market so this is as close to real life share trading as you can get. The Game now also provides your students with exposure to 55 ETFs and 5 LICs to diversify their portfolio.

 By participating in the Game your students will:

  • Develop their knowledge of the sharemarket,
  • learn how to research companies,
  • discover the importance of wise investment decisions,
  • gain a greater knowledge of economic and world events, and
  • begin to learn more about investing which is beneficial for their future.

The Game can be part of a school subject or an extra-curricular activity offered to students. It is free to register and as a bonus students can win cash prizes.
