Please note: with the exception of the International Online Trader of the Year prize, only teams from the UK are eligible to win any of the listed prizes and to participate in the semi-finals and later stages of the competition.

*This year, weve introduced a special scholarship prize. Each member of the teams achieving first and second place will be awarded a scholarship towards their first year of study on an undergraduate degree programme at The London Institute of Banking & Finance. We also realise how hard our finalists work on their presentations. In recognition of this, the presentation component of the final will give you assessment recognition in the year 1 module, Principles of Finance. Students must meet theentry requirements.
