Powerhouse Economists, Stock Market Gurus lead Free Online Conference

The Global Filipino Investors Inc. (TGFI) is bringing together powerhouse economists and stock market gurus in the much-awaited Bonds and Stocks Online Conference to teach Filipinos how to invest as the country charts its path to be one of the leading emerging markets in the post-pandemic era.

TGFI Chairman and CEO of Januarius Holdings Inc., JJ Atencio said that the two-day conference scheduled next month will tackle the relevance of investing in bonds and stocks to the Philippine economy recovering from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

For his part, TGFI President, Floi Wycoco said that the Free Online Conference on Stock Market and Bonds Investing for Filipinos Worldwide will serve as a reminder that there are still people out there that are generous enough to help others.

 

The Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi) has partially recovered after crashing of the economy. It stalled as the entire Luzon was placed under Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ) during March 2020.

 

“It also makes sense to conduct this event now while the PSEI is still in its correction phase, bonds can work as a way to protect the unrealized loss encountered during this phase so our goal is to let our attendees understand the purpose of being diversified especially in times such as the world is in today,” Wycoco said.

What’s so inspiring is that we Filipinos, magaling tayo dumiskarte. New opportunities are coming to light. When we came up with TGFI Bonds & Stocks Online Conference 2020, we knew that this would be totally different from our past events that were either held at convention centers or at venues outside the country like Singapore and Hongkong. This is the new normal. And we’re ready to get geared up for a more financially literate Philippines. And many Filipinos have gotten into their own businesses recently.  It’s so exciting where we’re all heading. This leap done by most of our countrymen is very special to me, as a former OFW, Filipinos are truly resilient.

“Months have passed since the lockdown, live events left the stage, and businesses had to pivot. This is where the Bonds and Stocks Online Conference (BSOC) comes in. We believe that Filipinos from different classes can learn more about these two investment vehicles and more so, give our audience the confidence to invest both in bonds and the stock market,” Wycoco said.

This is also an opportunity to learn how Money is Made in Bear Markets which is relevant to the outlook of the Philippine economy today. Former Institutional Stock Broker from Hong Kong and in the Philippines, Alex Timbol, will tackle the Stages of a Bear Market, through valuations, yield, to name a few, to help Filipinos have a thorough understanding of the investment strategies.

With the 80% of Retiring Pinoys not Financially prepared, this is a way to give back to the Filipino People. As a developing country, We need to press on our advocacy now more than ever. And that is to have a Financially Literate Philippines. For this, one of the panel discussions that every Filipino should go at the TGFI Bonds and Stocks Online Conference is the Panel Discussion of “Simple Proven Investments You Should Include in Your Retirement Plan” with Edgar Cruz, Senior Vice President and Chief Actuary of the Social Security System (SSS), Amado Dizon III, Senior Vice President of PAG-IBIG Fund. 

Filipinos can also know more on investment portfolio from dividend yields and defensive sectors like utilities. One of the topics that the conference will tackle narrows down each strategy on what will give investors more control, tax efficiency, valuation, and returns with Jaycob Yedra who has been in the stock market industry for 12 years. He has also participated as guest speaker in a number investment conferences in London, Barcelona, Dubai and Bangkok. The virtual conference also delves on the ins and outs of Investing in the growing Philippine Domestic Bond Market with Rienzie Biolena, RFP®, CWM®, AIF®, CFC® together with Fitz Gerald Villafuerte, RFP.  Expect to learn more knowledge on How Bonds Work, Bond Credit Ratings, Characteristics of Bonds, and Special Bond Features and How Bonds can Best Fit in Your Investment with Victor Choi, CFA.
