Stock Market Learning Competition 2015
October 06, 2015

On October 7th this year’s Stock Market Learning (SML) Competition takes a start. As in previous years the Ethibel Sustainability Index (ESI) Excellence Global has been selected to serve as 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. The ESI Excellence Global acts as a benchmark in order to identify sustainable investments. Shares included in the Index are flagged with a specific blue and green icon as to allow pupils to make an informed investment choice.

The 2015 SML competition runs from 7 October till 16 December. For more information visit the Stock Market Learning website
