“Watch towards the end of the year, we’re going to cross P1 trillion,” Marcial told The STAR.

“So, they can rely on a company that they trust, which is BPI Wealth, and live the mantra which we call #liveyourbestlife,” she added.

The campaign, #liveyourbestlife, echoes BPI Wealth’s commitment to empower customers to fulfill their highest aspirations.

She said more than 6,500 accounts were opened since the digital account opening for investments was launched late last year.

As part of the bank’s push for financial inclusion and make its products more accessible to a broader customer base, Marcial said BPI Wealth lowered the investment amount to P10,000 from P50,000 and to $100 from $1,000 for US dollar-denominated investments.

“We sees that with these product enhancements, we should be able to see more clients open investment accounts and make investments more accessible. This is what we call democratizing access to investments,” she said.
