The investment competition is the core activity of B&R Beurs. In this competition, we challenge groups of our members to put money together and actually invest. It allows our members to quickly gain practical experience, to teach them in a fun way, and to share knowledge more effectively.
The groups that compete are called investment groups; these groups, registered at the chamber of commerce, compete over a period of 8 months, to find out who can manage their portfolio most effectively. The Investment Groups usually consist of 7 to 15 members, and each group is independent, with its own rules and preferences. At the start of each year, existing and new members have the chance to join one of these groups; during our social- and matchmaking events, members find out with which group they fit the best, or whether they want to start an entirely new group from scratch.
In these groups, members participate in discussion and vote on portfolio decisions. Each member chips in a predetermined sum; usually between €250 and €400, adding to a shared sum that the group invests. What remains of this amount is given back to the individual members at the end of the competition.
Below, you find an overview of our investment groups. Take a look at their individual pages, you will find they all have their own personality and strategies!
