MANILA, Philippines — Metropolitan Bank & Trust Co. wants to equip Filipinos with the knowledge they need to make good financial decisions through savings and investing learning initiatives.

Digs Dimagiba, chief marketing officer at Metrobank, said the bank aims to help people learn as many Filipinos fall victim to investment scams, get caught in cycles of debt, and struggle to keep up with the rising costs of living.

“Our customers are people, not accounts. As such, we want to enable them to live life to the fullest. Through financial education, our customers can make decisions on how they can use their money in smart and meaningful ways,” Dimagiba said.

MoneyBasics is a collection of simple and creative tips for you to build up a habit of saving, while Earnest is a website that contains bite-sized lesson cards and easy-to-read articles so you can learn while on the go.

“Finance is not one-size-fits-all. Financial education should respect how people come from different life stages. Instead of promoting specific products, we guide people into a general direction where they can be proactive and get what they want out of life,” he added.
