Three six form students have been crowned the winners of the Anglia Ruskin University Faculty of Business and Law Investment League Competition.

Daniel Adekanle, Leah Glenday and Matthew Mortimer, all in Year 12 from West Hatch High School, in Chigwell, beat three other schools in the contest.

Teams were tasked with the job of investing a £3m hedge fund on behalf of Goldman Sachs.

The trio built an impressive portfolio which meant making a profit for their client over £18m over a four-year period.

Their imaginary money was invested into shares of ten large mainstream US companies such as Apple, Amazon, Google, Facebook, MasterCard and an American Conglomerate, Berkshire Hathaway.

A first place prize of £100 in Amazon vouchers were presented to the students for their impressive efforts.
