There are many ways to learn about how stocks in the market work. We have internet, books, seminars and many ways to get involved in different vehicles of investment, and as we may eventually end up being one of the investors. Investment in the Philippines is progressing since the last few years ago and continues developing new opportunities for market appreciation. Having knowledge about stocks and the investment, in general, is a huge advantage for anyone who wants their money grow.
Hence, learning about investment is not easy. You have to continuously learn from history to the present situations of local changes to global conditions. It affects an investor for every little change in the world because we are all connected to big traders globally. Just like what happened in early 2016 that China started to convert their country into a consuming nation. China is known to be the second largest trading market in the world. So the global market got affected by their difficulties. It sounds complicated but it’s as exciting as a roller-coaster. It can be scary, complex and a long ride but it’s all worth it in the long run.
Here are ways to learn personally with face to face interactions for better understanding.

5. Bancassurance (Financial Services)
Bancassurance business in the Philippines is doing well to make a stronger foundation for both bank and the insurance company. You may want to go to your respective bank/s to inquire about investment and other ways to save and invest. It is the safest way to invest especially that the transactions are on the premises of the bank. I suggest going to your BPI branch, as they are partnered with PhilAm (AIA) which offers a competitive choice of investment linked to insurance. Also, with Chinabank that is partnered with Manulife. RCBC is with Sun Life Grepa, and Metrobank is with AXA as the number one insurance globally, and other banks. They see a huge potential for this partnership so almost all banks or insurance companies are finding partnership together for a great revenue on both sides. It’s good to have an investment in protection on your hard earned money, right? So, prioritize your insurance before getting an investment. Or, you may get them both at the same time!
6. Insurance Companies
You may invest directly in any insurance companies that give you package deals for savings, protection, and investment which is more affordable than getting in a bank. Look for you a trusted agent to talk to today!
You can widen your knowledge through unending learning you can get everywhere. Don’t let others stop you from getting what you want to achieve in the future, just like how to do stocks in the market!
