National Bank Direct Brokerage is Offering an Educational and Lucrative Market
Simulation to Investors
MONTREAL, Oct. 8, 2013 /CNW Telbec/ - For a second time, National Bank Direct
Brokerage (NBDB) will be acting as an exclusive sponsor of the Biggest Winner
contest, presented by Horizons ETFs Management Canada (Horizons ETFs).
Until November 15, 2013, simulation participants will have to grow a $100,000
fantasy portfolio of exchange-traded funds (ETF).
"ETFs are increasingly popular on financial markets, and simulations provide
an excellent opportunity to find out more about them. Using simulations is
also a risk-free way for independent investors to test out their investment
skills. For those who want to be even more prepared, NBDB offers seminars and
webinars that specifically cover ETFs," stated NBDB President Nancy Paquet.
The participant with the highest yielding portfolio at the end of the six-week
period will be awarded a cash prize of $7,500. The runner-up will receive
$2,500. In addition, the participant with the highest portfolio growth each
week will win $500.
"For this edition, we have redesigned our online simulator to make it even
more user-friendly," said Howard Atkinson, President of Horizons ETFs. The
contest is open to all eligible Canadian residents and they can trade any of
the 72 Horizons ETFs products in a simulated real-world environment with no
cost and no risk."
