Manulife Investment Management and Trust Corporation recently announced its partnership with actress and visual artist Heart Evangelista as its first-ever brand ambassador.
According to Heart : “Investing has given me the opportunity to get the most of my earnings and open up multiple streams of income. When you want your money to work for you, you must find ways to build your investments, so you can boost your assets. It can then help prepare you for emergencies, and enjoy your savings and retirement.”
“I am fortunate that I have been guided about the importance of managing personal finances and investing for the long term, so returns can grow over the years while I continue living my best life today, ” she added.
Heart, the First Lady of Sorsogon Province, further pointed out that she wants to “pay it forward by helping educate more Filipinos, young and old, about the value of investments that can help build their funds and enable them to live comfortably. Small investments made consistently over time can really go far in creating the life that they’ve always wanted for themselves and their loved ones.”
“Many Filipinos think they need a lot of money or study complex market concepts before making their first investment,” said Aira Gaspar, President & CEO of Manulife (IM) Philippines. “Through our partnership with Heart Evangelista, we hope to reach more Filipinos and show them that investing through our unit investment trust funds (UITFs) can be easy, exciting, and accessible, allowing them to enjoy their present while securing their future.”
Reinforcing time as a valuable resource that Filipinos can harness to turn their dreams into reality, Manulife IM (Philippines) also launched “Imagine,” its first-ever short film about two aspiring actors who, upon recounting their lives, wondered what they would do if they became millionaires, and realized that time spent wondering can be time spent earning. Imagine is available for viewing on Manulife Philippines’ Facebook page.
