Bandar Seri Begawan, 10 August 2018 – In its efforts to cultivate and raise awareness on investments and capital markets services, Baiduri Capital rolled out the Baiduri Capital Investment Challenge (BCIC) in October last year.

Open to final year students from the Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD) School of Business and Economics, three teams of 3 [students] were each given BND5,000 as startup capital to invest into any of the securities listed on the Singapore Stock Exchange (SGX), Malaysia Stock Exchange (BURSA), Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKEx), China A-Shares (SSE-A) or the US Stock Exchange (NYSE MKT LLC, NYSE and NASDAQ).

Mr. Peng Eng Soon, General Manager of Baiduri Capital, said when speaking about the Investment Challenge, �The Investment Challenge provides a platform for the students to apply what they have learnt in the classroom in a practical way and are able to see the results of their decisions in real life. Besides providing a general understanding in financial investments and capital markets services, we are providing these business students with real-life trading experience.�

Mr. Yeo Kun Yu, Assistant Manager of Trading and Investment Services said, �Through the BCIC, we are able to show first-hand on how investments are conducted and help them through the challenges and obstacles that they will face along the way.�

The three teams participating in the BCIC are JEC, Kelupis and the Young Economists.

Carmen Gan Ai Cheng, team leader of JEC said, �The Investment Challenge has been a great stepping stone for us to the world of stock trading.� She further elaborated that the idea of investing has always been an interest and that the BCIC has been the perfect platform to venture into the world of investing.

Siti Khairunnisa binti Haji Awang Damit of Kelupis, when speaking on her team�s experience in participating in the BCIC, said, �The Investment Challenge has been a wonderful learning experience for us. Through our extensive research when deciding on which stocks to invest in, we have a greater awareness and understanding on how specific events, which were previously irrelevant to us, now have an impact on the market.�

Goh Fui Tze of the Young Economists said in a statement, �Baiduri Capital has helped to increase our awareness on the various facets of investing as well as the different tools and services that Baiduri Capital provides for investors.
