FTSE 100 Christmas Competition Winner of 2020

Back in December we asked our clients to predict the FTSE 100 at the close of play on Thursday 31st December 2020. We received 134 entries altogether and would like to thank all of you who took time to take part!

In an unprecedented year we received an unprecedented competition result – two predictions which were so close, we decided to send a bottle of Bollinger champagne to both!

The FTSE 100 closing figure was: 6,460.52

We are delighted to announce the winner of the competition was David Rimmer, with an amazingly accurate prediction of 6,460.50! This is our closest ever result at only 0.02 out!

This year we simply had to award a runner’s up prize due to the closeness of the predictions. We sent an additional bottle of champagne to Sheena Atkinson, who submitted another very accurate prediction of 6,461.00.
