Investec Wealth & Investment School Share Race 2013

 

Many congratulations to Adam Potts and Peter Doherty who represented Foyle College and came fifth in this year’s Investec Wealth & Investment School Share Race out of a total of 36 schools. 

The competition began last October and the boys were given a fictional £100,000 to invest in shares selected from the FTSE 350 Index.  Over the four month period the Index rose by 8% but Adam and Peter’s portfolio increased by 15.38%.  This is no mean feat in these volatile markets and would make many a seasoned broker envious in the current economic climate. 

Well done boys!
