“This advocacy of propelling financial literacy among Filipinos wherever they may be in their financial journey is consistent with our promise of keeping people in ‘good hands’,” said Digs Dimagiba, chief marketing officer, Metrobank. “Equipped with our decades-worth of experience and wisdom on banking and finance, Metrobank hopes to be the go-to-source of financial knowledge through our slate of learning tools and initiatives, starting with our flagship financial education tool, Moneybility.”
As Metrobank marks its six decades of serving Filipinos, it has grown to understand the beneficial effects of financial education in shaping a financially inclusive nation.
Metrobank has rolled out different financial education tools over the years. For those who are already aware of basic financial concepts and are looking at getting into investments, Earnest is the appropriate tool. Earnest is a learning and investing platform with easy-to-understand lesson cards, digestible financial news, and simple investing explainers. It also offers Metrobank My Choice Investment funds for as low as PHP 1,000 and allows account opening of a Metrobank Savings account. Users can go to the website, earnest.ph or download the app in the Play Store and App Store.
Metrobank also rolled out Tara Invest, a series of bite-sized social media video explainers on the basics of investing.
For high-net-worth clients, Metrobank has created an online portal called Wealth Insights. Through Wealth Insights, the Bank’s finance experts, as well as independent third-party research providers such as CreditSights, a global provider of investment research reports, can impart timely and relevant investment ideas, thoughtful perspectives on wealth management, and curated market-moving news for free.
On personal finance, Metrobank has MoneyBasics, a collection of simple and creative articles and social media posts to help people build their savings habit. Meanwhile, to educate Filipinos about the dangers of financial fraud and how to prevent it, Metrobank has Fight Fraud, a fraud awareness content series posted on the Bank’s social media and website. Metrobank, together with other local banks, also rolled out the industry-wide initiative called ScamProof.ph, an online source website focused on fraud prevention.
“Money management is not one-size-fits-all, so we have a slew of financial education initiatives that can provide proper guidance to every Filipino. At the end of the day, we envision all of us to be financially resilient. That means we can face any financial challenge at any point of our financial journey,” said Dimagiba.
