Launch of the NSIC 2022 by the Namibian Stock Exchange powered by Old Mutual, FureMedia and the Financial Literacy Initiative (FLI)

General Information



The aim of the Namibian Students' Investment Challenge is to introduce university and secondary school students to share investments and to provide them with knowledge on broader aspects of capital market operations, to give them an understanding of commercial dynamics and the macroeconomic environment through a fun and far reaching educational programme. Each participating team is credited with a fictitious amount of N$ 500 000.00 to be used for buying shares. Trading starts as of the 01 April 2022, ending 16 September 2022. Progress evaluations will be done over this period. Teams who produce the highest returns or incur the least losses in their portfolios over the period will be announced the winner. 


Students will gain invaluable experience in investment as well as gain useful knowledge that complement their studies in subjects such as Commerce, Accounting and Economics. Furthermore, the challenge provides students with an opportunity to work as a team using their combined research skills to investigate listed companies. This should offer them valuable insight on the workings of the financial market. We also believe that the Challenge will encourage students, lecturers, parents and public at large to become more aware of the workings of the Namibian capital market.  This should ultimately lead to a wider participation and lay a foundation for long term-term sustainable growth of the domestic capital market.
