The Valuraha Trader is a virtual trading platform that simulates the Nairobi Securities Exchange & the larger financial ecosystem.
The platform is built to recreate the entire securities market ecosystem on the web in a bid to enable users interact with a realistic simulation for practical learning. It also offers relevant market data to inform investment decisions.
The platform is initially targeted at high school and university students as a learning tool that adds much needed practical experience to the current curriculum & to increase the level of financial literacy.
The Kenyan Government is very keen on increasing Financial Literacy among the the in learning institutions through regulatory bodies such as the Capital Markets Authority. This indicates that we are supporting a need that is recognised.
The bigger goal is to transition from virtual trading to actual trading & uptake of financial instruments.
