ifs Student Investor

About the project

ifs Student Investor Challenge is the UK’s premier investment game for students attracting over 30,000 entrants a year. Refined Practice’s partners have been running the online phase of the challenge for over 7 years. The website demonstrates deep integration with third party information providers and involves the management of vast amounts of data in real time to ensure an exciting game that is a great learning experience for everyone involved.

As well as designing and hosting the website itself, we also helped to devise the gameplay and provide content for the site and for fortnightly email newsletters sent out to subscribers.

What the client has to say…

We have worked with Refined Practice’s Paul Ratcliffe on the ifs Student Investor Challenge website since 2007. He and his colleagues have provided consistently excellent service and brought a lot of creativity to the design and running of the challenge over the years, ensuring that it remains fresh and exciting for the thousands of students taking part.
