Following the success of the first edition,  the second Value Investment Challenge – Schools Edition, will be held at Alliance High School on the 11th of February, 2016 from 8am to 5pm. The event is organized in conjunction with Valuraha a startup company that builds financial literacy tools with a vision to open up the Finance industry for all in Africa.

This event will showcase the financial literacy and investment education program that the Valuraha Club has been conducting in high schools through digital learning and structured competitions. Students will be judged on their ability to present an in-depth analysis of a publicly listed company on the NSE, as well as their progress on the Valuraha virtual trading platform. This year they are welcoming new entrants to the competition, who hope to give our pioneer schools a run for their money.

Two scholarships to pursue degrees in Strathmore University will be awarded, along with cash prizes of up to Sh. 200,000. The event should be well attended with the likes of Guest of honor  Cabinet Secretary ICT, Hon. Joe Mucheru. He will be awarding Sh.100, 000 to the best investor in competition he launched dubbed the Mucheru Challenge.

Keynote speech will be given by Peter Ng’eno, MD Kenya Unit Trusts, UAP – Old Mutual Group. Strathmore University will also announce an Executive Teacher’s Training that that they will be launching in partnership with Valuraha.
