Sun Life Asset Management recently held a press conference last Tuesday, October 2, 2018. During the press conference, Sun Life Chief Investment Officer Michael Enriquez talks about how to stay on track given the market outlook for the coming year. He identified the current market drivers and how inflation affects the growth of investments in the country. He also projects next year’s inflation to be at 4.1%. As the market is expected to experience multiple swan dive dips, now is the perfect time to invest on equities.
“Higher inflation has really been slowing down expectations of GDP growth, and this has been evident in the second-quarter GDP,” Mr. Enriquez said.
“Clearly the threat from inflation remains brought about by higher global oil prices and the high price of rice,” he added.
“We at Sun Life Asset Management continue to believe that it’s still a good time to invest.”, “We have recently lowered the minimum investment amount in select peso denominated Sun Life Prosperity Funds now for only 1,000 pesos clients can start investing into Government Securities, Bonds, Balanced, Philippine Stock Index, and Philippine Equity Funds.” President Sun Life Asset Management Company, Inc. Valerie N. Pama said.
Sun Life Asset Management beefs up Bills Payment Program with new bank partners
Committed to make investing an even more delightful experience for its clients, Sun Life Asset Management Company, Inc. (SLAMCI) has partnered with Banco De Oro (BDO), Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI), and Metrobank for its Bills Payment Program.
The Bills Payment Program enables clients to make additional investments in peso-denominated Sun Life Prosperity Funds via a bank partner’s various payment channels: online banking mobile banking automated teller machine (ATM)*, or over-the-counter (OTC).
“We’d like to offer clients comfort and convenience in their investing experience, knowing just how demanding their daily lives can be,” SLAMCI President Valerie Pama said. “By enhancing the Bills Payment Program, and with the help of our bank partners, our clients can effectively integrate investing in their lifestyle and be on their way to prosperity.”
For online banking payments, Sun Life Prosperity Fund investors who are BDO, BPI, or Metrobank account holders can make additional investments by enrolling the intended Sun Life Prosperity Fund/s as a biller in the banks’ respective online platforms, then proceeding with payment.
This functionality can also be enjoyed using the banks’ respective mobile applications.
Meanwhile, for over-the-counter (OTC) payments, investors simply need to drop by any BDO, BPI, or Metrobank branch, fill out a payment slip, and hand the payment to the teller.
According to Pama, SLAMCI is set to partner with more banks in the coming months. “This way, our investors can easily stay on track in their journey towards their Financial goals,” she said.
