I personally believe that proper financial education opens up a lot of opportunity for Filipinos. Being equipped will stir you to better decisions regarding financial matters.
Highlighting the company's efforts to make financial literacy accessible to Filipinos, Sun Life offers three free online resources to help many learn and plan for their future. The program will provide a three-step push for individuals and families towards achieving their dreams:
1. Attend the Brighter Life Institute
2. Begin their journey with the My Future Fund Calculator
3. Connect with the #SINAG online journalism contest
“Nowadays, Filipinos are more empowered in taking charge of their finances. They are turning to online resources to help them understand financial concepts and manage their money. Given our expertise and experience, we want to be their go-to partner as they progress in their financial journey,” declared Sun Life of Canada (Philippines), Inc. Chief Marketing Officer Mylene Lopa.
Attend the Brighter Life Institute
The Moving Up module takes its cue from Sun Life’s ‘Money For Life’ philosophy, which shows a holistic journey through four different life stages. With lessons spanning from creating a household budget to preparing for future milestones such as a college education, BLI’s latest offering can now be accessed via http://brighterlife.com.ph/bli-moving-up/.
