A TEAM of Trinity School pupils have been busy showing off their entrepreneurial flair.

For the third year in a row, a team from the school in Shirley has been named November's regional winner in the IFS Student Investor Challenge.

This year's winning team, Stochastic, was made up of Year 13 students George Webb, Ejaaz Ahamadeen, Peter Chambers and Edward Tidball.

Against the backdrop of a poor economic climate, they turned their virtual £100,000 share portfolio into a £147,949 return, since the beginning of trading in November.

George said: "With markets particularly on edge at the moment, it has been very interesting to complete the challenge.

"It has definitely taught me about risk management and about the need to have confidence in the stocks you own".

Rod McKee, vice-principal of the IFS School of Finance, said: "This competition gives students the opportunity to gain first-hand experience of making investment decisions, which will benefit them throughout their lives when making financial choices."
