THE Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) will conduct series of seminars on how to invest in mutual funds and in the bourse itself. The seminars will initially be conducted in Tarlac, Cebu and Davao in the second quarter of this year.
“At this time when we face a global economic slowdown, the need to teach Filipinos on how to properly manage their finances and wisely invest their hard-earned money has become even more necessary. During tough times, it is of great importance to keep focused on financial goals, smart spending and wise investing,” said PSE president and chief executive officer Francis E. Lim.
Lim said the seminars were part of the exchange’s provincial roadshow project, which aims to educate prospective stock market investors in provinces.
The PSE has engaged in provincial roadshows to lure more local stock market investors during the past three years.
The PSE conducted seminars in Pampanga, Tacloban, Baguio, Bacolod, Iloilo, Cagayan De Oro and Iligan last year.
It also held business meetings with potential local investors in Dagupan, Laoag, Cebu, Baguio, Cagayan Valley, Davao, General Santos and Iloilo in 2007.
In 2006, it held roadshows in Baguio, Cebu, Davao, and Batangas. A report from the Philippine News Agency
