The year 2015 ended with a good economic standing, it is also a good time to look on how the year was for the Philippine stock market. In 2014, Manila was said to be the next global center of innovation in the world. The opportunities are coming in ways that one could not have felt or predicted in the past. The Philippines has become one of the fastest growing economies, however, it is the level of consumer engagement that has come to differentiate it from other fast growing peers in Asia. Hosting the last APEC summit 2015 provides the Philippines an innovation to market itself as an investment destination.
For the past year, my team and I together with some well-known financial leaders and educators in the industry successfully organized an Investment Conference entitled ICON 2015 held at the SMX Convention Center, Pasay City. The main topics focused on basic financial planning, stock market basics, managing debts, and entrepreneurial principles among others with the main objective of empowering the attendees to manage their own finances and assets, encourage and usher them in investing innovation.
In this matter, we are organizing the fourth instalment of ICON at the SM Aura, Samsung Hall, Taguig City this May 28, 2016 at 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM with a target participation of 1,500 attendees. With a bigger innovation, we have gathered a stronger group of local finance authorities in the country to talk about the basic financial and how the recent innovation affected the economy through:
