European Stock Market Learning
​​​The European Stock Market Learning is a European initiative to enforce literacy of young people in business and financial affairs through an online simulation of financial investments. It is a nationa​l and cross-border competition for teams of pupils (15 and older) and students run by European savings and retail banks.
​The ESML was launched in 1983 in Germany and since 1999 joined by further ESBG members, so that currently five countries participate. Since 1983 about 7.5 m​illion pupils and students have participated in the annual stock market simulation with more than 45,000 teams per year.  

The European Stock Market Learning is coordinated by ESBG.
