Securities and Exchange Commission of Pakistan (SECP) and COMSATS Institute of Information Technology (CIIT) signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) in Islamabad on Monday to cooperate in creating investors' awareness.

Under the MoU, SECP will be holding regular seminars at COMSATS Institute of Information Technology to educate existing and incoming students about the basics of savings, financial planning, investing and capital markets.

Students will also learn about the Jamapunji web portal that has been specially developed for imparting investor education in Pakistan. In addition, a stock market simulator supported by real-time Karachi Stock Exchange stock prices has also been developed. Students can register on the simulator and learn to build portfolios and related analysis of portfolio performance.
