What would you do if you were given $100,000? Would you spend it all at once? Would you think about putting some of it in the bank? We’d like to teach you how to invest it, so you might grow it. Through The Stock Market Game (SMG), you’ll gain an understanding of investing and how you might get your money to work for you. The Stock Market Game is offered by the SIFMA Foundation, an education organization dedicated to promoting knowledge and understanding of the financial markets for all individuals. Nearly 600,000 students play the game each year in the U.S. and around the world.
