HONG KONG SAR – Media OutReach Newswire – 17 May 2024 – Sahm Capital, the leading all-in-one online brokerage in the Kingdom, is excited to announce its sponsorship with the Saudi Tadawul Group for the highly anticipated “Invest Wisely Program.” The announcement was made during the Capital Markets Forum in Hong Kong, where industry leaders gathered to discuss the future of global capital flows.

The sponsorship for “Invest Wisely Program” is set to launch in the second half of 2024. It is a groundbreaking financial literacy initiative designed to empower participants with the knowledge and skills necessary to become successful investors. Through a dynamic virtual platform, participants will have the opportunity to learn, engage, practice, and compete in a simulated trading environment that mirrors the real-life experience of stock market trading.

Hadeel Bedeeri, the General Manager of Sahm Capital, expressed her enthusiasm about the partnership, stating, “As the first all-in-one online brokerage in the Kingdom, this program aligns perfectly with Sahm Capital’s commitment to raising awareness and knowledge among existing and potential investors. As Saudi Arabia continues its journey towards a more institutionalized market with increasing participation, well-informed and equipped investors will be empowered to make more informed investment decisions.”

The comprehensive “Invest Wisely Program” encompasses investment workshops, access to learning materials, and a cutting-edge trading simulation platform that allows participants to create virtual portfolios while gaining invaluable experience trading on the Saudi Exchange. Additionally, a competition will provide an opportunity for participants to showcase their trading skills and knowledge, with prizes generously sponsored by Sahm Capital.
