Why It’s Better to Invest in the Philippines

We’ve been reminding everyone that to save our economy, we should continue to support our local entrepreneurs and farmers. But there’s another option, a simpler and reliable one – investing in the country through government-issued Progreso Bonds.

To keep our finances afloat, some of us have ventured into online businesses, and that’s not a bad thing at all. This has enabled us to follow our passions, learn new things, and be more creative. In turn, we have been helping not just ourselves, but the economy, in our own little ways. 

Opening a business is just one of the ways to maximize our hard-earned money. Other opportunities include trading stocks, getting into insurance investments, and securing a retail treasury bond from the government.

The Philippines’ Bureau of the Treasury (BTr) has been issuing retail treasury bonds since 2001 as part of the government’s savings mobilization program to make government securities available to retail investors and, at the same time, create savings consciousness among Filipinos.

Progreso Bonds for the Filipinos

This July 16, 2020 until August 7, 2020, the Bureau of the Treasury (BTr) will be launching RTB 24 Ahon Pilipinas, Progreso Bonds Para sa Bayan

Every Progreso Bond investment for this offer will go to the country’s emergency, recovery, and resiliency funds. This is in partnership with the National Economic Development Authority’s (NEDA) PH-Progreso Program.

An investment is a chance to help build more testing facilities to aid our battle against COVID-19, provide assistance to Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) displaced by the pandemic, and support small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Let’s do our part for our future

How much does one need to buy Progreso Bonds?

A minimum investment of Php 5,000.00 is enough for us to do our part for the country.  In 5 years’ time, bank accounts connected to these investments will be receiving the amounts promised every quarter. And in 5 years, we should also see the effects of our investments towards a #BetterPhilippines.

This offer has been made more convenient and safe for everyone, with investing done through the BTr website (www.treasury.gov.ph/rtb) or through the new BONDS.PH app.

To further explain these investments, BTr and other supporting agencies such as the Department of Finance and NEDA, have prepared a lineup of seminars/webinars for everyone interested in knowing more.
