    Right then,

    We have leagues for lots of things and here is another: Who thinks they could be a Fund Manager?

    Then PM me with your email address and DO NOT REGISTER and I will send you the invite to join, then you register. If I refer you, we get entered into the £2000 draw that we don't have a hope of winning. Details here.

    Click Here to register if you don't want to be entered into the prize draw: Torygraph Fantasy Fund Manager. Once registered - let me know and I will invite you to join the ARRSE Investment Gurus League.

    Be careful on the registration to make sure all of the advertising stuff is switched off.

    Here is the elevator brief of the rules:

    * A minimum of 5 and a maximum of 20 funds are needed to make up your portfolio (the cash investment is one).
    * A minimum of 5% and a maximum of 25% can be invested in any one fund.
    * The minimum investment criteria in Equity/Specialist funds is 25% and maximum is 75% invested across these funds.
    * If a fund declares a dividend it will be added to your portfolio as cash.
    * Participants can make unlimited amends to their portfolio selection until the end of the Main Game Registration period without charge.
    * Any portfolio amendment after the end of the registration period will be charged 1% commission (except for bonds at 0.5%) on each fund purchased (with exception to Commission Free Periods).
    * If you are registered but have not allocated your portfolio before the game goes live, you will automatically have a Lucky Dip portfolio selected at random.

    So who is in?

    Edited to clarify how to be entered into the draw.

    I am. Should be good for a giggle, albeit a bit too close to the day job.

    Already, we have a few in the League.

    Initial selections from me go like this:

    Fund Type Funds Allocation Value (£)
    Cash 1 0.00 % 0.00
    Bonds 2 25.00 % 25,000.00
    Overseas Equities 3 45.00 % 45,000.00
    Specialist 2 30.00 % 30,000.00

    C'mon - you are all quick enough to tell us how to do it - let's see who has the acumen. I can tell you now - it probably won't be me!!!!

    C'mon team. We are 27th. That isn't too bad - but we need to do better. Do we all invest in Aberdeen Asia IT (biggest growth in last 7 days) or do we sit tight?
  11. Well that was that chums!

    We were looking alright last month with a placing of 4th before the economy creamed us leading up to the finish!

    Anyone on for the Sprint Finish Game?
