Sun Life is launching a Vlog series on finance topics such as growing one’s money, beating inflation and investing regularly with celebrity investor, Matteo Guidicelli.
There are a lot of talks and content out about finances, but why do Filipinos still have a hard time buying the idea of investing their money and all that? Everyone has a #LifeGoal and yet not everyone knows how to work towards those life goals.
The problem is that a lot of the finance principles being discussed seem so far-fetched for regular income earners. That’s why the #MakeitMutual Vlogs are great because you will be taught how to apply these principles in practical ways. You’ll also be taught about investing in Mutual funds and how to “reap the best rewards out of your investments”, as SLAMCI President Valerie Palma would put it.
“We all have goals that we’d like to accomplish, such as buying a house or a car, travelling to a dream destination, or planning a wedding. These are goals that require a significant amount of money, and sometimes, Filipinos become discouraged knowing how much they need to raise to be able to fund their dreams,” she said. “We’d like to show them that by saving and investing in mutual funds, all their dreams can become a reality. They simply have to ‘Make it Mutual.”
There’s really so much to learn about finances, believe me. One of the best decisions we’ve made is to learn more about and invest in Mutual Funds so I really recommend that you follow these Vlogs religiously when they come out so you’ll know what I’m talking about.
The #MakeitMutual series are free and will be posted on social media for your easy access.
If you’re wondering why Matteo for this one, it’s because he knows the benefits of investing. He’s learned a lot about discipline and investments from his dad at a young age and has a wealth of experiences that he can share to Filipinos who want to improve their financial well-being.
The other great thing about it is that it’s only the first of the many financial literacy initiatives that Sun Life is producing this year. It will be Financial Independence Month this June, so expect to see more of these initiatives leading to it.
On a side note, I’m just an advocate, I’m not a Financial Advisor. But if you want to talk to one (or interview for the best one) so you can invest in a Mutual Fund, I can hook you up and you can take it from there. What do you say?
See you online for the #MakeitMutual Vlogs!
