NSE launches investment challenge for Uni students


The Nairobi Securities Exchange has launched the NSE Investment Challenge 2012, at the Daystar University, Nairobi Campus.


Commenting at the launch, Mr. Peter Mwangi, Chief Executive of the NSE, said: “The NSE Investment Challenge is our way of encouraging our youth to develop a culture of savings and investments, by demonstrating in a practical way how to buy and sell securities listed on the Nairobi Securities Exchange.”


Mr. Mwangi thanked the Vice Chancellor of Daystar University, Dr. Timothy Wachira for supporting the Challenge and for encouraging their students to participate in the Challenge.


“The 2010 and 2011 Investment Challenge winner has been Mr. Martin Wambua Kiilu, a Daystar University student.”
In order to ensure access to all, the NSE Investment Challenge is a web based online competition. Notably, this year the Challenge has also attracted youth from Europe and the United States of America.
