The challenge will allow participants to deepen their knowledge of key financial instruments and test their skills through BG Saxo Trader Go, BG Saxo's advanced online trading platform, with the goal of developing a real investment strategy that will protect an original virtual capital of €1 million.

The Investment Challenge is part of Reply’s Challenges program, a series of online challenges developed to foster coding culture and stimulate digital innovation in creativity, cybersecurity and - for the very first time - finance. The competitions first started in 2018 and were targeted towards technology enthusiasts and the next generation of talent. This signifies a landmark in the online educational and entertainment landscape and has involved more than 40,000 participants around the world on the most current digital and innovative trends.

The Investment Challenge will be run in three phases. The registration phase, running from Wednesday 4 March to Friday 27 March, will enable registered students to access the e-learning content provided by Banca Generali, MIP Politecnico of Milan Graduate School of Business and Reply, and improve their financial knowledge and understanding of the BG Saxo Trader Go trading platform. This training session will feature the investment of virtual capital in a demo environment, with a real-time view of the market trends.

During the online qualification phase, scheduled for Monday 30 March to Thursday 9 April, the portfolios will be credited again and all participants will begin to compete against each other online. They will then be able to utilise the input provided by Reply and adopt the best asset management strategies aimed at protecting their initial capital.

The 100 traders who maximize their portfolios while avoiding specific game penalties, will be able to access the final phase which is scheduled for Friday, April 24, where three winners will be determined.

Registration for the challenge will be open until Friday 27th March at challenges.reply.com.
