I've been reading a lot of books lately. I'm even updated with the latest K-drama news. However, I've been contemplating if I have the complete knowledge so far. What about financial literacy? Am I still afraid to think about it? Or am I just too lazy to spare something for the future? Well, it will get in the way of buying the latest clothes and accessories offered to fashion lovers. It will also affect my travel plans.

Two months from now, I need to maintain my investment tied up with a certain company. Even so, I'm still thinking of withdrawing it before the term is over. Luckily, I had a chance to think things so many times. I can't be wrong when it comes to financial security.

Luckily, I had a chance to attend the launching of a series of vlogs (video blogs) by actor Matteo Guidicelli, in cooperation with Sun Life Asset Management Company, Inc. (SLAMCI). It aims to teach Filipinos about how investing can help make their #lifegoals come true.

I've been working with Sun Life Asset Management Company, Inc. (SLAMCI) for almost two years since I really believed in their efforts to spread awareness about financial literacy. We all know that it will surely lead to financial independence.

Going back to the event, the vlogs are Dubbed "Make It Mutual," and it will tackle topics relevant to personal finance, such as growing one's money, beating inflation and investing regularly.The best thing about this is that the modules shall be demonstrated in themes familiar to them, like travel, fashion, and fitness, among others. See? It will help me manage my finances so I can travel, shop and invest at the same time.


It will be easy for all of us to access the vlogs since all videos will be shared through social media. In fact, the first video is already accessible through Sun Life PH Facebook.

Matteo has also shared some thoughts about the new campaign lately. "I am thankful for the opportunity to lead another financial literacy campaign for SLAMCI. It's definitely relevant and timely," Matteo said. "I myself have life goals I'd like to pursue, and I'm happy to share that ever since I "made it mutual" with SLAMCI, I've been well on my way to achieving all those goals. It would be great if more Filipinos can experience the same."

The campaign is also the latest in SLAMCI's efforts to boost financial literacy among Filipinos. It's really for all of us to learn and apply in our lives. After all, saving money is part of our everyday living. Basically, the campaign"Make It Mutual" aims to encourage Filipinos to invest in mutual funds so they can achieve their life goals. The company was also behind the "Slam The Scam" campaign which likewise starred Matteo, who shared tips on what to consider when choosing an investing company in order to avoid dubious organizations. That was the project of Sun Life Asset Management Company, Inc. that was launch last year.

I'm so amazed with the message shared by the President of the company. According to SLAMCI President Valerie Pama, the company is committed to helping more Filipinos discover the benefits of investing so they may reap its rewards. The commitment is even more relevant these days since many people are already seeking for knowledge about financial management, specifically about mutual funds. "We all have goals that we'd like to accomplish, such as buying a house or a car, traveling to a dream destination, or planning a wedding. These are goals that require a significant amount of money, and sometimes, Filipinos become discouraged knowing how much they need to raise to be able to fun their dreams," she said. "We'd like to show them that by saving and investing in mutual funds, all their dreams can become a reality. They simply have to "Make It Mutual."


Lastly, the "Make It Mutual" campaign is just the first of Sun Life's series of financial literacy initiatives this year. We will be given a lot of opportunities to learn from the company. According to Sun Life Chief Marketing Officer Mylene Lopa, more will be launched in this coming days as Sun Life rolls out its Financial Independence Month campaign in June. "We remain committed to this cause. Sun Life is always eager to promote it in ways that are creative, relatable, easily understandable," she said. "We will never tire of advocating financial literacy to Filipinos."
