They are a leading global financial services firm with assets of $2.4 trillion and operate in more than 60 countries. The visit provided an insight into the world of finance for students.

The Challenge: Money Matters

Students were set the challenge of setting up a new sweet shop. They had to work out the finances of the business; apply for a loan, analyse risks and benefits of different stock, and work out their income and profit for an end of year report.
