"Trading Floor helped my pupils develop their core kills of comunication, team-working, analysing information and decision making."

Julie-Anne Hamilton, Business Education Teacher, Inveralmond High School

“I went to the Investment Challenge hoping to learn about investments and the pressurized atmosphere of the stock exchange. I ended up having one of the best evenings since I've been at university. It was a frantic and testing event, but it was absolutely thrilling!”

Munro Stewart, Student, University of Dundee

"Trading Floor allowed my pupils to experience proper team working, they learned how to focus for a sustained period, and they saw how Maths can be relevant and real."

Catherine Irvine, Maths Teacher, Edinburgh Steiner School

The Global Investor simulations are superb.  The program works for all ages at secondary and all ability levels and the pupils are completely engrossed in the experience.  It teaches all pupils about the way the world of finance works in a fun and easily accessible way.
