Labour - JSE Investment Challenge registrations are open

In today's show, we spoke to Desiree Campbell - Coordinator at JSE Limited. She joined us to talk about the JSE Investment Challenge. The annual competition provides South African high school learners and university students the opportunity to explore the world of investing by trading JSE listed shares through a virtual portfolio. Registrations for this year’s challenge are open. JSE Investment Challenge is an educational youth programme that’s aimed at introducing high school learners and university students to the world of investment and teaches them the fundamentals of investment strategy and is a good opportunity for each student to get insights on the how to invest and the importance of investing on the exchange. Registrations are now open and the competition kicked off on the 10th March and ends on the 26th of September. Winners in the schools and university challenge will be announced at an awards ceremony held at the JSE in October 2014.
