QUESTION: I’ve been reading your investing articles and want to try it myself. However, I’m an OFW. Is there any way for me to invest in the Philippines while I’m abroad? —Bea via e-mail
Answer: It’s heartening that OFWs respond to financial education positively and quickly. While it’s unfortunate that our banks still require mountains of forms, signatures and personal appearances, it’s not impossible for OFWs abroad to open accounts and start investing. It just initially requires some amount of time and effort to secure your financial future.
