UCPB, through its Cambridge branch, recently conducted a Financial Literacy Seminar for the officers, enlisted personnel and civilian staff of the Armed Forces of the Philippines’ (AFP) General Headquarters Procurement Center (GHQPC).
With the theme “Discovering options on managing personal finances and making money grow towards future financial freedom”, over 50 personnel attended the event held in May 2018 at the AFP Procurement Service Multi Purpose Hall in Camp Aguinaldo, Quezon City.
GHQPC employees learned about Bancassurance products from COCOLIFE Account Executive Janica Tabuzo; short, medium and long term investments products from Treasury Banking officers Donna Lyn Abes and Angelo Vergara; and different UCPB LoanEasy products from Consumer Banking officer Jessie Raymund del Rosario and Cambridge Branch Sales Officer Isabelle Balaquit.
“All participants gained concrete and practical insights in managing their own personal finances. As they all discover at some point, it is at least as hard to make money as it is to preserve and protect one’s savings. Equipped with the basic financial literacy skills, they can now evaluate their needs to achieve future financial freedom. Thanks to UCPB Cambridge branch. I am looking forward to another Financial Literacy Seminar just like this one,” Commanding Officer LTC Benedict A. Bodegon PAF said.
