Investing in mutual funds is as easy as 1-2-3, all you have to do is just make a placement, just like in time deposits. You just leave your money with the fund an continue with your daily routine while leveraging on the effort, time, and expertise of the professional fund managers.
Unknown to many, investing in mutual fund does not require a big amount. To open a mutual fund account, an investor is required to place a minimum amount of Php 5,000. There are other types of mutual funds that require a minimum initial amount above Php 5,000. The amount depends on the mutual fund company and the type. As an example, Philam Strategic Growth fund requires Php 20,000. For Philequity, its Dividend Yield Fund needs Php 20,000 and PSE Index Fund needs Php 200,000 as minimum investment amount.
Php 5,000 is an affordable amount to invest and make your hard-earned money grow. After opening your account, you can do regular top up with a minimum of Php 1,000. Wealth-building is not a one-time process. It takes a lot of sacrifice at the beginning but once you get used to it, you will realize that investing is addictive. It is not the amount but the habit that will help you build your wealth.
