Guess who decided to do some financial check up!
Mr. Colayco doing a "financial check-up" on Mead Johnson's doctors
Last Oct. 30, Mead Johnson featured a financial educational talk called “Brainvestments” for its doctors. This is part of a series of talks for their employees, designed to widen their horizon of knowledge beyond the medical field. They invited renowned financial guru, Francisco J. Colayco to conduct the seminar. Mr. Colayco emphasized to the doctors that the obligation to be wealthy is similar to their obligation to their patients: it must be taken seriously. He taught them to utilize their Pisobilities effectively, so that they can share to everyone their wealth. In the end, he challenged them to get into serious investing IMMEDIATELY, considering the current investing climate of the country. “Huwag magpahuli sa tren,” he reminded them.

Many people just experienced the REAL Oktoberfest!
Last Saturday, Colayco Foundation conducted three financial seminars at the Ortigas Foundation Library. The first is Pisobilities: Wealth Within Your Reach, from 9:00 am to 12:00 nn. Mr. Armand Bengco, the Executive Director of the foundation, conducted the seminar for a big number of participants. Mr. Bengco introduced them to the basics of proper personal finance and the various investment opportunities available for everyone to be wealthy. Everyone highly appreciated and enjoyed his wacky but powerful approach in teaching personal finance. In the seminar, he also introduced Art Ladaga (

the foundation’s Programs Officer) who brief sharing to the participants. Art shared his personal money story and how being financially literate empowered him to start achieving for his desired wealth, despite being 25 years old. Even if he is still not yet wealthy, the money concepts he gained from the foundation gave him a clear path in his financial life.
The morning session also featured INVESTability: Stock Market conducted by Ms. Guita Gopalan, the foundation’s Managing Director. The participants were given a first-hand glimpse of the world of stock investing. They were able to see how the stock market works and how people make money from it. While stock investing remains to be one of the fastest ways to grow money, Ms. Gopalan advised everyone to be goal-oriented and prudent. Many investors lose money in such an investment due to carelessness and greed. Only an investor with sufficient capital, experience, time, and MINDSET can make stock investing work for him/her.

Mr. Bengco conducting INVESTability: Mutual Funds
INVESTability: Mutual Funds was the last treat of the day. Held in the afternoon, Mr. Bengco conducted it for a huge number of attendees. Mr. Bengco introduced mutual funds as an alternative for the stock market, especially for the ordinary income earner. He then proceeded to teach the fundamental strategies on how the participants can effectively utilize mutual funds in achieving their respective goals. It was a session filled with numerous inquiries and new learnings. Although the session ended a bit late, the participants went home very satisfied with their new found knowledge and skills.

Last October 25, Colayco Foundation conducted a retirement workshop for the upcoming retirees of the National Irrigation Administration. Mr. Armand Q. Bengco, the Executive Director of the foundation, conducted the workshop. Aside from the basics of personal finance, Mr. Bengco shared with the participants the possible opportunities they can get to once they retired. He reminded them that whatever financial situation they are in, it’s never too late to start being financially literate. In the end, he told the retirees that being financially savvy is directed to only one thing: to live their remaining years fully and joyfully.
Here are some of the pictures taken from the workshop:

Guess who got a “financial check-up” recently.
Last September 24, Colayco Foundation was invited to give a personal finance seminar to the employees of Unilab. Mr. Armand Bengco, the Executive Director of Colayco Foundation, conducted the seminar. Not only did they get their healthy dosage of the proper personal finance concepts, but they also got their dosage of Mr. Bengco’s unique wit and humor.
Here are some pictures from the seminar:
Overall, Mr. Bengco reminds everyone that as much as physical health is important, so is one’s financial health. The key to having a healthy personal financial life is through a healthy balance in all five aspects of personal finance: earning, planning, saving, spending and investing!
