This year's Saxon Investment Club was launched on October 1st to local high school and college students ages 14-19; participating institutions are the John Gray High School, Cayman Prep and High School, St. Ignatius, Clifton Hunter High School and ICCI.
Saxon Investment Club offers students the opportunity to gain invaluable insight about investing in a hands-on environment and be exposed to the realities of the investment world from a young age.
Students participating in this contest are presented with a wealth of benefits including:
Hands-on experience of how stock markets function Exposure to the realities of the investment world

In addition to sponsoring, promoting and administering the competition, Saxon Pensions will award monthly prizes along with a grand prize of $2,500 and a $500 cash prize for the runner-up. The annual competition teaches fifty fledgling investors and features a simulation of the New York Stock Exchange, enabling students from 14 to 19 years to experience the highs and lows of what it might be like to trade in the real world using virtual start-up capital of $100,000.
Saxon CEO Brian Williams: "Saxon is committed to investing in our youth as we recognize that there is no better investment in Cayman's future than instilling young minds with knowledge and wisdom. While this club certainly evokes a healthy level of competition, the most valuable reward is the insight gained from the hands-on experience."
"Through the careful planning of each group's portfolio, the students will gain knowledge about sound stock market investing and money management, invaluable to shaping their future" said, Mr. Williams. "Saxon also hopes that introducing students to these disciplines at this age might spark an interest in a future career in the financial industry."
