BTEC business students Hardeep Madhan and Andrew Storey have achieved a ranking of 163 in the Institute for Financial Studies Student Investor Challenge, a competition containing over 8000 teams.

Between November 4 and January 31, their 'Bulls and Bears' investment team managed £100,000 of virtual stocks and shares, ensuring that the investment not only stayed strong, but also grew by almost £8,000.

"I found the challenge really enjoyable and enjoyed learning about all the different companies in FTSE 100," said Andrew. Hardeep, competing in the challenge for the first time, enjoyed learning how to buy stock and looking at patterns of business performance. "I would definitely recommend the challenge as it's really helped me to learn more about businesses," he said.

The pair received a certificate and book vouchers from the College in recognition of their achievement.
