With the current exciting but inadequate stock market, equipping young people with knowledge and skills about stock investment is also an extremely necessary factor. Instead of just learning about securities through websites, the Smart Investor contest gives you a real playground for you to directly learn and experience. From there, candidates will accumulate and learn more investment experiences from themselves, experts and other candidates, and at the same time improve their English skills, helping them to have a foundation and experience before becoming a real investor.
