BPI’s Investments Roadmap Korea Series

A staff from Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI), Manila visited South Korea for an investment seminar. The event was held at Best Western Arirang Hill Hotel from April 16-17, 2016.

They conducted three sessions open for all Filipinos working here in South Korea.

A successful one, as an attendee, I can say!


Mr. Paulo Tayag, a representative of BPI Asset and Wealth Management Division and an Investment Counselor talked about “How to Prepare for Retirement”. The topic was indeed well explained.


The quest of every Overseas Filipino Workers to financial freedom is a long way to run. Each of those who work overseas has just but one dream: to give their family a good life. Almost they provide everything and left nothing for themselves. That’s how these responsible people show love to their family.

Yes, it feels good when we provide. But think of it carefully; was it really a good practice? If everything will be provided and if these OFW’s will be empty handed… How well can they manage when it’s time to retire? Will they work abroad until they get old?


With those given explanation and encouragement from the speakers….. Will they start to prepare? Or don’t care?

Well, the answers for these questions is definitely not mine to know but for your older YOU to foresee, for the only person who will take care of you when you get old is the OLDER you.


Ms. Sherry Marie Marquez, shares about starting up a business or rather the franchising that BPI offers. BPI unfolds the idea of franchising through their business loan program “Ka-Negosyo”. Whether you will start or grow your own business, BPI will help you achieve your dream. For more details of their “Ka-Negosyo” program visit

BPI is in partnership with Woori Bank, the first bank in South Korea. And through this bank you can remit money to your loved ones in the Philippines. It’s just as easy as 1-2-3. First, you just have to open a Woori bank account. Second, register BPI accounts of your beneficiaries in the Philippines and third, remit using Woori banks ATMs.


Mutual funds and UITFs as investments were also offered. Securing yours or your family’s future will no longer be deprived from you this time. All you need is your money management skills and the determination to achieve financial freedom.


For opening of BPI accounts for your savings or for your beneficiaries you may inquire to  Mr.Roy Perez Marketing Manager and BPI’s representative in Seoul.

Kudos to the Bank of the Philippine Islands for opening this investment roadmap for Filipinos in South Korea.
