MANILA, Philippines – Everyone should aim to be financially independent, regardless of age, income, and investment experience.
This is why COL Financial Group Inc., the leader in online investing in the country, continues to stay true to its mission to educate, equip and empower Filipino investors.
“One of our major objectives going forward is to expand our products and services so that we can better address the needs of our existing clients and other Filipino investors,” said Dino Bate, President and CEO of COL Financial. “This makes us very excited about our future.”
Recently, COL Financial, in partnership with the SM group of companies, conducted an investor awareness campaign nationwide titled, “Wealth Building Summit for the Filipino Investor: SMart Money Through the Stock Market.”
During the summit, COL revealed 3 upcoming services that will make it even easier for individuals to invest in the stock market wherever, whenever. These services include:
Online investing for OFWs – COL forged a partnership with iRemit, the largest non-bank, Filipino-owned remittance company. This partnership allows 3 million overseas Filipinos in 27 countries worldwide to invest in Philippine stocks online with the help of COL Financial’s educational resources such as tutorial videos, seminars and market briefings.
COL 3rd-party fund distribution – COL also partnered with the country’s top asset management companies to give their clients the chance to invest in a variety of professionally managed funds and provide them with the right tools and unbiased expert opinion in selecting the right funds for their portfolios.
