The Investment Advocacy

Filipinos in general, operate in a consumption driven society. Many of us fail to see the power of saving and investing. There are a few who are avid savers but very few understand the value and power of investing savings long term. Often money is kept in savings accounts in banks, where it is presumed to be "safe". But what most fail to realize is that savings account almost as a rule pay out interest that is below inflation. And although it appears to be safe, the money saved loses its value over time.

Investing an increasing portion of your savings regularly over a period of time can actually leverage your saving significantly. You not only preserve the value of your money, in many cases you can even increase it. Many people I have talked to, think investing is extremely technical so very few want to invest. The truth is, investing does not require a lot of high-tech expertise. It really is more a matter of discipline and a basic understanding of investment principles. When a persons commits to a saving/ investment program, he or she will begin to see it as a powerful tool for financial independence and wealth creation.

It will take more than just a blog post to present a fuller picture of investment here, That's why I strongly urge you all to do yourself a favor and attend these PIFA seminars. It's free and it will be a great first step to your financial stability. Mutual Funds free you from the burden of having to manage your own investment portfolio, so it's ideal for new investors. And if you still have doubts and questions after that, I will be glad to personally walk you through the bumps and hiccups of your financial journey. We can do it over email, phone, Skype, or even face to face, whichever works best for you. This is my advocacy; to see the Filipinos transform into world class investors. You don't need a lot of money to invest. You just need to make a commitment to do it religiously, regularly.

I am Lyn Llige. If you want to know more about me you can view my LinkedIn profile. Let's get connected. I would love to help you out. The sooner you start the better for you, because the real secret to building wealth is not so much earning a lot of money (although that helps, it's never a guarantee). The secret is keeping and investing diligently and starting the habit early. It doesn't matter how small the amount. The power of compounding over time is mind blowing. It's sad that very few Filipinos know this. Don't be one of the clueless financial zombies. Get educated. 

If you want to discuss the post further you can reach me through my email at [email protected] and we'll take it from there.
