First agenda that was announced is that, Philippines has now gained a credit rating of BBB+, now what does this means in layman’s term? This rating translates to PH having an adequate capacity to meet its financial commitments.
This rating also means that interest rates can go down, thereby creating a better financial environment for our country, investment-wise. This also means that now is the best time for those who have not yet invested in any type of funds to start.
Most newbie in investing have these qualms in starting an investment:
1. Not enough fund to start one
2. No knowledge in investing
To borrow a tagalog cliché’ “Pag gusto, maraming paraan; Pag ayaw maraming dahilan”. We can always send out reasons for not giving in to financial literacy and aiming for a brighter future but where will it lead us?
