The 2024 FlowBank Trading Championship

Would you like to know how the best athletes and sport stars in the world trade financial markets? That’s the idea behind the FlowBank Championship - the only online trading competition bringing together the world’s top athletes to find out - who is the champion trader! 

After a wildly popular first edition in 2023, the FlowBank Championship is back  with a host of new sports stars - and for the first time, coaches too - all raring to compete in the financial markets for 5 weeks.

What is the FlowBank Championship?

If you’re new to the competition, the idea is that this is the place where athleticism meets financial acumen! FlowBank has always believed that  the financial markets can and should be accessible to everyone. That being said, it can be both challenging and intimidating to engage in investment and trading for the first time.   

It seems as though there are so many barriers to entry to investing.  You might have encountered some of these yourself 
1) Financially, having the money to invest and trade with is a challenge for many.
2) Understanding how to invest your money well, making sure no matter your initial investment, you can see returns.  
3) There’s also the question of the practicalities of ‘how to trade’ - which button do I push and when? 
4) If I set up a watch-list, what’s the next step?  
5) Finally, there’s the question of financial knowledge - which stocks should I pick, what’s a CFD, and how do I know when it’s the right moment to open or close a position?  

It was these challenges that inspired the creation of the FlowBank Championship.  Why not take individuals who are experts in their sport, and introduce them for the first time to the world of financial markets?  As these athletes learn the ins and outs of trading, we get to follow along to understand their strategies and see how market changes play a role in their decisions.
