Throughout their investment journeys, participants will be taught the importance of learning how to invest, and break the main misconception that investing is complicated, time consuming and requires a lot of money.

Throughout their investment journeys, participants will be given direct access to licensed dealers who act as their mentors guiding them into the world of trading and investing. Previous participants have also mentioned that the access to these mentors were important towards a positive overall experience investing.

For example, Harvest Capital from Universiti Brunei Darussalam exceeded their own expectations and secured a profit of BND 4,968 at the end of the Challenge.

Nur Haziqah Jahirah binti Haji Osman, the team leader, said that her team learnt a valuable lesson in being firm with their decision, with the confidence given to them by their mentors.

She said: “Through the guidance and information provided to us by our mentors combined with our own risk appetite, we were confident to go all in and invest in just one company. That bold move fortunately paid off for us in the end.”

She added: “The mentors from Baiduri Capital helped increase our awareness on the various facets of investing as well as the different tools and services that Baiduri Capital provides for investors. Their consultation service has been a great benefit for us as new investors.”

Mr. Peng Eng Soon, General Manager of Baiduri Capital, said: “The aim of the Baiduri Capital Investment Challenge is to cultivate awareness and generate interest in financial investment and capital markets. This will be fourth time Baiduri Capital will be holding it, and we have received very encouraging feedback from past participants, some of whom have also become full-fledged investors with us.

He added: “They have shared how important it was that the Investment Challenge provided them with access to Baiduri Capital’s digital platform, which is the same tool that our investors use. The BCIC also gave them the rare opportunity to apply what they have learnt in the classroom and through their own research in a practical way. Not only that, they are able to gain real trading experience and reap the rewards from trading.”
