MANILA, Philippines — If you happened to have placed money with Pag-IBIG's MP2 program for the entire 2020, your investment already grew by 6.12% in dividends.

MP2's latest dividend payout is lower than 2019's 7.23% growth. But 6.12% is still considered a better-than-decent performance in a year when the COVID-19 pandemic afflicted the economy.

Year MP2 Dividends
2020 6.12%
2019 7.23%
2018 7.41%


Why it matters: This rounds up the MP2's cumulative dividend growth to 20.76% since 2018, making the fund among the most attractive available for beginner investors looking for low-risk opportunities. In comparison:

  • Retail Treasury Bond holders expect to grow their investments by 2.375% in three years.
     
  • Money market funds for investors with a low-risk appetite such as ALFM's had a three-year return of 3.27%.
     
  • A bond-based mutual fund, particularly the Philam Managed Income Fund, saw a three-year yield of 4.4%.

The MP2 or Modified Pag-IBIG program, a specialty savings facility of the state-run mutual fund, grows members' voluntary savings for a five-year maturity period.

  • "[It is] designed for Pag-IBIG Fund members who wish to save more and earn even higher dividends, in addition to their Pag-IBIG Regular Savings," Pag-IBIG says on its website.
