Competitive Events

Investments Objective Tests

With people now retiring later and later because of the lack of money, I believe a competitive event focusing on different types of investments could be a game changer for the "Future Business Leaders of America." The test can include investments vehicles from the lower risk bonds, money market accounts, and annuities, to the higher risk stocks, options, futures, and forex (Foreign Exchange).

 

The way to grade the skills of students would be through the use of objective tests. Personal Finance already deals with some investments but it is just not enough to spark interest in such an important future aspect of life. The investments market in business is enormous but not stressed much in "FBLA" so this could introduce a whole new sector to the organization.
