With the Philippine Economy getting uglier at the moment, would you still think of investing? If you would ask me, I would. Crazy ba? Looks like it! but if you are to dig deeper, it is still the right time to invest today because it is the best opportunity for your money to grow than nothing at all.

In a conference of Sun Life Asset management where I attended a few days ago, it is where I was able to contemplate about this.

Sun Life Chief Investment Officer Michael Enriquez said that the projection for next year’s inflation would be at 4.1 percent. He mentioned this during the 2019 Market Outlook briefing. Yes, there will be multiple swan dive dips in the market but NOW is the perfect time to invest on equities today. Why? This is to take advantage of the opportunities for next year.

Michael Enriquez, Sun Life Chief Investment Officer talks about the reality of our current market.

“There will be more negatives before we see positives in the economy but it doesn’t mean there’s no opportunity to enter markets right now, this is the time to pick up equities." Michael Enriquez, Sun Life Chief Investment Officer 

Furthermore, Sun Life Asset Management opened many solutions for Filipinos which gives everyone the opportunity to invest NOW as it a good time for people to review and find out how to balance as much as we can. 

FACT: Not all of us are committed when it comes to our finance and assets.

But clearly, the Sun Life Asset Management Company, Inc. (SLAMCI), a subsidiary of Sun Life Financial will do everything to help every Filipino.

SLAMCI President Valerie Pama talks about new/upgraded offerings

They have partnered with Banco De Oro (BDO), Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI), and Metrobank to amp up its Bills Payment Program as part of its commitment to making investing an even more delightful experience for its clients.

The Bills Payment Program enables clients to make additional investments in peso-denominated Sun Life Prosperity Funds via a bank partner’s various payment channels: online banking, mobile banking, ATMs (applicable to 800 only) or over-the-counter (OTC).

For online banking payments, Sun Life Prosperity Fund investors who are account holders of BDO, BPI and Metrobank respectively can make additional investments by enrolling the intended Sun Life Prosperity Fund/s as a biller in the banks’ respective online platforms, then proceeding with payment. This functionality can also be enjoyed using the banks’ respective mobile applications. 

For OTC payments, investors simply need to drop by any partner bank branch, fill out a payment slip, and hand the payment to the teller. SLAMCI is set to partner with more banks in the coming months.

Also, as part of SLAMCI’s commitment to providing better products and services to its clients, it has recently reduced the minimum initial investment in Sun Life Prosperity Funds for as low as P1,000. This is in line with its aim to promote financial awareness and contribute to financial inclusion.
