Fantasy Fund 2020: Sign up for DN’s share game and win a first prize worth NOK 100,000
Dagens Næringsliv is now launching Fantasyfond, a stock game that starts on Monday 5 October and will run for the next ten weeks.
The person who is left with the highest return when the game is finished, runs away with the main prize worth 100,000 kroner. In addition, weekly winners are chosen in the game.
– Anyone who wants can participate, as long as you are over 18 years old. It requires no prior knowledge to play, and it only takes a few minutes to set up a portfolio. It goes very fast and it is super easy to play, says Petter Winther, project manager for Fantasyfond.
Fantasy Fund starts Monday, October 5th. You can register here and set up your portfolio right now.
In Fantasy Fund, you will create your own fund by setting up a portfolio of individual shares. The portfolio will consist of between five and 20 companies listed on the Oslo Stock Exchange.
Both any gains and losses are fictitious, but the development in the shares is exactly as it is on the real stock exchange.
Winther thinks the game is a great way to learn more about the stock market:
– The main purpose of the game is for more people to learn about, and become more interested in, the stock market. We know that interest in the stock market is high, but that many are a little reluctant to invest. We hope the game can help more people find the security to be able to invest in the stock market themselves, he says.
– Loses savings
So far this year, 60,000 new investors have joined the Oslo Stock Exchange, and most of these are under 40 years old. This is a clear increase compared to the previous five years. This summer, DN wrote that the number of young shareholders has doubled since last year.
– People see that they lose savings by having them in the bank. There has been a very strong stock market this year, and many see that there are opportunities for good returns, says DN commentator Anita Hoemsnes.
She hopes the game can be a good start for more young people and women who want to start investing in stocks – two groups that are in the minority among investors today.
Hoemsnes believes that the game is a good platform for learning more about the stock market – without losing real money.
She emphasizes that ten weeks is a very short time horizon for most investors, and that it is important to understand the difference between investing in stocks in the game and in the real world.
– Many people think that stocks can seem like gambling. You should not enter the stock market and think that it is the same as betting, says Hoemsnes.
