Whatever your motivation may be, all we know is that every Juan should invest, and every Juan can invest. Now here is the S.M.A.R.T way to invest:
The PH government is once again offering retail treasury bonds (RTBs) for as low as PHP5,000. This is one of the ways that our government raises funds to fund its projects and operational needs.
Here are two more investment options for Juan to consider, especially for those with long term, low risk investment O-H-A. Works pretty much like a time deposit but much higher rates.
These are not big amounts, but definitely we “felt” the earnings compared to placing the same amount in bank time deposits. We had two subscriptions, one via online broker (i.e. COL Financial) and the other via a local bank.
Here’s another investment option. This time these are bonds (liability of the company) instead of preferred shares (company selling part-ownership of the company). This one’s being issued by SMC Global Power Holdings, which is a subsidiary of SMC, the one who issued the preferred shares we featured in March.
