Given the regular bills, rising prices due to inflation, and never-ending daily expenses, saving can seem challenging. However, this habit is necessary in order for us to achieve our various goals—whether that’s saving up for our dream home, raising capital for a business venture, setting aside funds for our children’s education, planning for retirement, and the like. All these require financial investment.
According to the 2021 Financial Inclusion Survey (FIS), 37% of Filipinos have some form of savings, which they typically keep in the bank or at home for emergencies. Despite the increasing number of Filipinos opening savings accounts, doubling in just two years, fewer individuals actually have savings and insurance.
This statistic is quite surprising, especially considering that according to the latest Manulife Asia Care Survey 2023, 80% of Filipinos believe in retirement planning, with 55% ranking it as their top personal finance goal. Regrettably, only a third (30%) have a plan in place.
