Stock Market Learning with ESI Excellence Global
October 23, 2012

The Ethibel index ESI Excellence Global has been selected by the European Savings Banks Group as the reference index for their Stock Market Learning (SML) game. SML is supported by major European savings banks  (inter alia ACRI, CECQ, Banque et Caisse d’Epargne de l’Etat Luxembourg and Finanzgruppe), and should be considered as Europe’s biggest stock market business game.

The game gives pupils and students the opportunity to invest virtual capital on the stock market. Through this simulated trading in securities, SML wants to create a better understanding of the stock market mechanisms and a basic awareness of economic issues.

An important objective of SML is to show the importance of sustainable investment and of integrating social and ecological considerations into investment decisions. SML encourages young investors to foster prudence and far-sightedness and to shift their focus from short-term profit-making to long-term strategies, without losing sight of economic factors.

The Ethibel ESI Excellence Global index was picked up as an important standard for corporate sustainability and socially responsible investment, thus serving as the benchmark for this year’s competition.

The Stock Market Learning competition has started on the 1st of October and will end on the 11th of December 2012. For more information, please check out
