Stock Market Challenge 2010

Teams of businesses across the North East came together on Wednesday 21st April 2010 for an evening of trading stocks and shares at the Hilton Newcastle Gateshead for The Children’s Foundation’s Stock Market Challenge event.

With sponsors Sintons Solicitors all the teams turned their initial £10,000 in fantasy cash into a sizeable profit by trading shares in nine imaginary companies which saw their values rise and fall during the course of the night.

After fiercely competitive evening the winners with an impressive portfolio of £475,800 were stock brokers and investment managers Brewin Dolphin who walked away with the obligatory red braces and champagne.

Many thanks to all the teams who were involved and our sponsors Sintons Solicitors and media partner The Journal.  A special thanks our volunteers for the evening who manned the trading pit.
