“SLAMCI has always been committed to making investing more accessible to Filipinos. Through this
collaboration with Investa, the largest and fastest growing social-financial platform in the country, we can make a big leap towards this goal,” Bautista said.
“This is likewise aligned with our goal of digitalizing the Filipinos’ investing experience, so that it can be easily integrated into their lifestyle.”
Meanwhile, Bisnar highlighted how Investagrams and SLAMCI were aligned in its advocacy of bringing
prosperity to more Filipinos through financial literacy and investing opportunities. “Filipinos are very
hardworking, but opportunities to be more prosperous aren’t readily available to them. That’s what we
hope to address,” he said.

subscribers. They simply need to choose the fund that suits their risk appetite best, whether
conservative, moderate, balanced, growth or aggressive.

include COL Financial, First Metro Securities (FirstMetroSec), Wealth Securities (WSI), Unicapital
Securities (UTrade), AB Capital Securities (ABCSI), Rampver Financials, BDO Securities and Citi Financial
