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!
