The TTSEC, in collaboration with the Securities Dealers Association of Trinidad and Tobago (SDATT) and the Trinidad and Tobago Stock Exchange Limited (TTSE), partnered to develop a local and creative way to understanding investing.
This project was developed primarily with potential investors in mind, to provide another avenue for persons to learn more about investing and get involved in the securities market, without creating a bias toward any particular product or entity. It is an engaging platform and educational tool designed to assist persons in learning about and understanding the operations of the securities market in Trinidad and Tobago.
This game, which is a virtual market, is made up of (12) fictitious companies and investment products, comprises many scenarios and market changes, and incorporates risk at various levels, relating to investments in stocks (7), bonds (2) and mutual funds (3).
While our market is slow moving, the game attempts to create a very unpredictable market with interesting circumstances, material changes and significant movements in the stocks. Users will also be able to interpret how their initial investments can result in capital losses or gains based on the risks or decisions taken during game play.
The game also includes: a quiz feature to assess your understanding of certain investment basics before playing, a section for reading more about investing, company profiles and historical information about companies, brokerage fees, a leader-board, links to the TTSE for current data, and to SDATT and MFATT’s websites for more information.
Two competitions were also launched in tandem with the announcement of the TTSEC’s investing game – one is via the Instagram Account, InvestucateTT and another via Investor Quest TT. Winners will receive a Kindle Fire table and an Ipad respectively.
A core mandate of the TTSEC is to educate members of the public about their investment options and their rights and responsibilities within the securities industry. This investing game offers one more avenue for us to help encourage potential investors and investors to grow the market. The TTSEC’s investor education programme has become a collaborative one, where we involve all stakeholders to help grow and develop our market for the benefit of all – Mr. Hadyn Gittens, CEO, TTSEC.
