Each participating school and college is provided with a free site licence of the Global Investor simulation games, Finance Lab, and Dealing Room.

The competitions' key objectives are to enable students to apply their learning in Applied Maths and Business, and to develop business awareness, transferable and employability skills and enterprise and entrepreneurship.

The inter-school competitions use the Trading Floor simulation and involve 20 to 30 schools in each UK region.
