Callan Capital was pleased to sponsor and participate in Junior Achievement’s 2019 Stock Market Challenge in San Diego. More than 150 students from local San Diego high schools got a taste of the fast-paced, high-stakes stock market through the competition. Callan Capital also participated in the corporate, adult event at night, taking the first-place spot in the competition. Using state-of-the-art technology in a simulated trading environment, each team began with $500,000 in fictitious funds and interacted with on-site traders to buy and sell shares in 26 companies with the goal of building the highest-net worth portfolio by the end of the trading period.
The event was designed to connect teens to the future world of business and to raise funds for Junior Achievement’s financial literacy programs. The stock market challenge raised over $41,000. For more information on Junior Achievement, please visit https://www.jasandiego.org.
