National CashFlow Competition 2015

Have you ever thought that you could have a glimpse of your future in Singapore and understand how making the right financial decisions can affect your life indefinitely? Do you think that making decisions on buying a house, buying insurance, investing in stocks, bonds and even starting a business is too much to handle? Are you confused about how economic events can affect your financial life?

As a young person growing up in Singapore, inevitably we will have concerns for the future. Now, with a newly designed board game called Asset Finesse™ (AF), we can experience making financial decisions for our future. The best thing is when we make a wrong decision, we can learn from it and not make the same mistake in our real lives.

I've been invited to play this game a couple of times now. This game has a realistic element to our lives in Singapore. It is a revelation of how our life will turn out in the future base on the financial decisions we make. For the first time in history, you too can experience this game through an annual financial board game competition called National CashFlow organised by NTU Interactive Investment Club (NTU IIC) and sponsored by Great Eastern Life Assurance Co Ltd.

All of us can join this competition regardless whether we are studying or working.

What Is National CashFlow Competition 2015?

National CashFlow Competition (NCF) 2015, is the largest annual event proudly presented to you by NTU-IIC. This year, the committee is happy to introduce a newly designed board game, Asset Finesse™ (AF). This board game is suitable for anyone who seeks to understand the economics of Singapore as well as learn to appreciate the uniqueness of a small but powerful country. More importantly, it provides players with a fun-learning experience about finance in general.

There will be 3 categories:

  1. Secondary - For Secondary Schools in Singapore
  2. Tertiary - For JCs, Polys and ITEs
  3. Open - For undergraduates and any members of the public 

On the day itself, all categories will compete separately at the preliminary round (participants only have to go through one round). Winner from each table at the preliminary round will then proceed to the final round.

Highlights of Asset Finesse:

  • Singapore context -> CPF token, HDB flat, baby bonus
  • Economy cards -> The economy state will keep changing throughout the game (thriving, steady, flat and poor outlook)
  • Objective: accumulate net assets of 200k
