Economics Pupils Prosper in Investment Competition

As of Thursday 26 April 2018 Dollar Academy’s team in the UK Shares4schools competition are currently placed 1st in the Northern Region (Scotland and the North of England).

The team of eight Form V pupils, all studying Higher Economics this session, started with an initial investment of £2,000. They must invest it in stocks and shares in the London Stock Market over a period of nine months. ‘They have wisely invested a large proportion of their stake in solid unit trusts across the globe and avoided the fluctuations in the market since late January 2018,’ commented Mr Moore (Head of Business Studies).
