Our Smart Market Simulator is designed to supplement educational programmes or assessment needs. The system is a fully featured market simulator and is used by some of the world’s largest trading companies for recruitment, talent assessment and education / upskilling.

We have used our 10 years of experience to develop a simulator that incorporates all the attributes needed to educate and assess, but without unnecessary technical complexities. This has resulted in a simulation tool that is user-friendly, easy to administer and can be deployed globally (with or without consultant presence).

The system is designed with a modular architecture which allows new functionality to be added quickly. This will ensure that the system evolves in line with industry changes.

The simulator is also market agnostic and is used in a wide range of training scenarios and departments.
