Jan 21, 2018
The school teams participating in the TradeQuest program recently presented their trading performance during the first period of the program. The presentations were held at Bahrain Bourse’s auditorium.

During the presentations, the participating teams presented their financial performance in both Bahrain Bourse and New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). The teams also outlined the main challenges they faced during this period, their risk management techniques, as well as the performance of the companies in their portfolio. They concluded their presentations with the lessons learned from the program. 

Towards the end of each of the three trading periods of the TradeQuest program, the schools are required to present their strategy, objectives, and performance to the Investment Review Committee.

The program has been highly supported by various banks and financial institutions throughout the past 19 years.  Bahrain Bourse is particularly thankful to the following institutions who have sponsored TradeQuest this year in the interest of enhancing investment awareness among students: Platinum sponsors include: Bank ABC, Economic Development Board, Bahrain Mumtalakat Holding Company (Mumtalakat), National Bank of Bahrain, and the Labour Fund (Tamkeen). Gold Sponsors include: Ahli United Bank, SICO and United Gulf Bank.  Silver Sponsors include: BBK, Gulf International Bank (GIB), Investcorp, Khaleeji Commercial Bank, and Al Salam Bank Bahrain.
