Nowadays we see a lot of commercials on how we can invest our money in banks and insurance companies. Money, after all, is everyone’s big concern because it will also dictate our family’s future. But where do we start? Is there a simpler way of understanding investments?


Here are three money growth starter tips that you may begin with:



Opening a bank account or having an ATM is simple. The challenge is to grow the money inside your account. Before looking at insurances and other more complicated investments, start by growing your savings first by learning to differentiate between your WANTS and NEEDs. Be totally aware of your monthly spending and just spend on the things you and your family need. It would also help if you immediately deposit 10% to 20% of your salary as savings every payday.


 Money, like other things inside the house, should be organized. Once you have started to grow your savings, make sure that you put your hard-earned money to different productive uses. Make a list of your 5-year plan to determine where you will need to put your money. (Do not forget to order your list according to priority!) It would also not hurt that certain money will placed in higher interest earning investments.


It is quite easy to research about different investment opportunities because of the internet. Banks, likewise, are offering different products that will make your money grow faster. A word of advice, always research before investing. It would also help if you get to attend free seminars and talks that will guide you choose the right investments.

This month of October, there are a series of financial talks that you might want to check out. Lancaster New City, the flagship project of the Property Company of Friends, has tied up with Colayco Foundation Education, Inc. and Summit Media to give a series of financial talks to OFWs, OFW families, young professionals, and young moms.
