In support of the annual Trust Consciousness Week from March 19-23, 2018, UCPB came up with several initiatives to support of the Trust Officers Association of the Philippines’ (TOAP) and its education arm, the Trust Institute Foundation of the Philippines’ (TIFP) objective to raise the public’s awareness and understanding on the features and benefits of trust products and other fiduciary services.
The UCPB Trust Banking Group conducted a talk to graduating college students of Sacred Heart College (SHC) in Lucena City to discuss the importance of saving and investing. This was held on February 24, 2018 during the school’s 2nd UPSURGE (UPgrade, SURpass and GEnerate) Finance 2018, an annual event of SHC’s Junior Financial and Investment Executives.
In her message in the TOAP supplement published in the Philippine Daily Inquirer and BusinessWorld on March 19, 2018, Senior Vice President and Trust Banking Group Head Ma. Elena Sarmiento who serves as TOAP director and TIFP President underscored the organization’s commitment to uphold the industry and its stakeholders while uplifting the lives of its Trust Banking clients. “The Trust Consciousness Week is in service of the Filipino people with programs and campaigns that will promote financial literacy and financial inclusion, among others. We draw on our collective efforts to ensure that the investing Filipino is equipped with the right tools and options to successfully maneuver every stage in his life cycle, whether it be saving to build one’s wealth, planning for retirement or even, further beyond, the proper distribution of his estate.”
