Digital Stock Trading Guru Competition


Stock Trading Guru (STG) board game is a learning tool developed by IFEC in 2014 for Secondary 4 to Secondary 6 students studying Business, Accounting and Financial Studies (BAFS). Through playing the board game, students are able to learn some essential financial knowledge in a fun way and understand the importance of having right attitudes in investment. To facilitate teachers and students to conduct classes online, the board game was digitalized as Digital Stock Trading Guru (DSTG) in 2022.

Co-organised by IFEC and the Hong Kong Association for Business Education, and supported by the Education Bureau, a Digital Stock Trading Guru Competition (Competition) will be held in May 2023. Details are as follow:
