Stock Market Learning Competition - 01.10.2014 - 10.12.2014
September 17, 2014

On October 1st the Stock Market Learning (SML) Competition will take off again. During this edition the Ethibel Sustainability Index (ESI) Excellence Global will again form the basis for the sustainability analysis within the competition.

SML – or Planspiel Börse – is an online competition, run by the saving banks in Europe, giving students the opportunity of taking their first virtual steps in the investment community. They do so by investing a virtual amount of money in a selection of shares, following share prices on real stock exchanges.

Sustainability is the focal point of this competition that aims to promote far-sightedness among young people, by means of sustainable investment strategies, rather than pursuing short-term profits. In this regard the ESI Excellence global acts as a benchmark in order to identify stocks that are considered sustainable. Moreover a special focus is put each year on a specific sustainability topic. For 2014 the theme is water.
