Swing Set (The Swing)
The Swing Set is a Business alliance within Politics & War. The Swing operates multiple businesses within Orbis; and is most notably known for the award winning creation of "The Orbit" Stock Exchange.
Founding and Early History:
Swing has existed since July 20th, 2020 and was founded by BenJaLum and Gabriel with an investment from Penguin. Swing started off its early life as a resource trading company and with that success grew and expanded. They set up the formal business as a investment location where investors could put their money into Swing and get a direct return from the profits from trading.
Later Swing started investing in a bank called, Bank of Evil. The bank had many internal struggles and essentially collapsed. Through their independent investments The Swing bought out BoE and created a "B" fund system and BoE became B6. In that time following till now B6 has become the largest fund within Swing.
The B fund system:
The B fund system was set up for flexibility for investors, allowing them to choose their strategy. It was unique as it allowed for the direct investment with a specific goal. Though the downside being less returns then buying into the company as a whole like a stock but like a savings account the money could be withdrawed at any time.
- B1: Resource Index Fund

The Swing today is quite large compared to its beginnings. It has gone on to found TOSE (The Orbit Stock Exchange) on September 27th, 2020 and recently acquired AoSB (Ace of Spades Bank) on April 4th, 2021. Swing has only ever had one CEO being Benj though, Deraj served as acting CEO while Benj was in absence. This coincided with "Arctics First Time" which saw involvement from TOSE officials investigating Taith and helping with the recovery on the shareholders behalf.
Swing won the Rothschild Award for the Economy Prize of $1 billion which was hosted on RON (Royal Orbis News). It won for the Creation of TOSE which was nominated for "The stock exchange (TOSE) that has existed for the better part of a year has resulted in a never before seen innovation within the wider P&W realm, ultimately being the number one business hub for companies totaling over 100B in book valuation.".
On May 2nd, 2021 BenJaLum retired from the game thus leaving all swing affiliated companies. Deraj is now the new CEO completing his rise through the ranks to the top.
