With the Philippines being projected as the second fastest growing economy in the world in 2015 (according to Bloomberg survey of economists), expect more local and foreign investors to come as the country is expected to have a high economic growth for the next 2 years. With this, more investment opportunities will arise, hence investing in a mutual fund would be a great idea.
The Colayco Foundation for Education recently conducted a seminar about Mutual Funds that catered to more than 50 attendees. Armand Bengco, Executive Director of the foundation, opened the seminar by discussing the basic rules in investing including knowing your purpose, target, and timeline (P-T-T). "Don't get into investing if you haven't yet determined these three things. You'll be prone to losses if you do," he advised. This segued to the discussion about the ins and outs of mutual funds. He briefly explained the basics of it--how it works, its pros and cons, and its different types. He also taught some investment strategies to make the most out of your mutual fund investment. In general, the attendees learned so much from the session.
The Colayco Foundation has been conducting seminars across the country to provide professional financial advice to Filipinos. Aside from the mutual funds seminar, they also offer other programs like investing in stock markets, financial planning workshop, fixed income investment seminars, and more.
