MANILA, Philippines — Metropolitan Bank & Trust Co. (Metrobank) further strengthened its drive on financial education by introducing Moneybility, an e-book aimed at helping Filipinos to be financially resilient.

Metrobank said Moneybility is a pioneering comprehensive and dynamic financial education e-book and platform in the country and one of its initiatives in keeping its commitment to be the bank that educates.

Metrobank chief marketing officer Digs Dimagiba said Moneybility is no ordinary book or e-book on financial education.

“We strive to go beyond just providing the usual banking services and aim to be the credible and reliable partner of our customers for expert financial advice. With education as our driving force, we hope to fulfill their needs while at the same time empower them to sustain a financially resilient way of living,” said

The-e book has a collection of money management topics that gets updated as market conditions change. It also has multimedia and interactive features and tools like quizzes, money tracker, and calculator that will make different topics on money more relatable and understandable.

This new financial education platform is convenient for individuals who want to start developing smart money habits on budgeting, dealing with debt, insurance, investing, and many more. Moneybility is currently available for sign-ups on moneybility.metrobank.com.ph.

“This advocacy of propelling financial literacy among Filipinos wherever they may be in their financial journey is consistent with our promise of keeping people in good hands. Equipped with our decades-worth of experience and wisdom on banking and finance, Metrobank hopes to be the go-to-source of financial knowledge through our slate of learning tools and initiatives, starting with our flagship financial education tool, Moneybility,” Dimagiba said.

As Metrobank marks its six decades of serving Filipinos, it has grown to understand the beneficial effects of financial education in shaping a financially inclusive nation.

According to a 2016 S&P’s Global FinLit Survey, a country’s financial literacy rate has direct correlation with its economic development.

In the case of the Philippines, only 25 percent of Filipinos are financially literate, trailing behind other ASEAN countries, based on World Bank’s 2014 Financial Capability Survey.

However, the pandemic has urged more Filipinos to show interest in personal finance. Different financial companies as well as content creators supplemented this with the rise of money-related topics across social media platforms.
