Matteo Guidicelli vlogs about investing; eloquently shares his #lifegoals

No one knows what will certainly happen in the future but based on historical trends and related events, we could somehow predict what might happen. Beyond the uncertainties, this should not stop us for planning a better future and one way to do it is securing yourself for a better future through wise financial decisions. 

I'm just new on investing. Though I have encountered such topic already on my MBA, it's only last year that I've decided to be financially literate and take charge on my financial goals. I've learned that we should not only  be putting our hard earned savings in one investment portfolio but put those "eggs in different baskets." I availed an insurance with investment attach to it. I started buying stocks. I'm building my emergency fund. I cleared up my debts. I ensure that I have a lot of income streams. And now, I'm good for another investment option.

I'm happy that I was able to attend the media launch of Sun Life's new product investment which I'm considering to be one of my investments.

Actor Matteo Guidicelli, in cooperation with Sun Life Asset Management Company, Inc. (SLAMCI), will be launching a series of vlogs (video blogs), which aims to teach Filipinos about how investing can help make their #lifegoals come true.

Dubbed “Make It Mutual,” the vlogs will tackle topics relevant to personal finance, such as growing one’s money, beating inflation and investing regularly. To make it easy for the viewer to relate these to real life, the modules shall be demonstrated in themes familiar to them, like travel, fashion, and fitness, among others.

All videos will be shared via social media to make it readily accessible. 

“I’m 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 latest in SLAMCI’s efforts to boost financial literacy among Filipinos, “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.

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. “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 fund 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.’” 

The “Make It Mutual” campaign is just the first of Sun Life’s series of financial literacy initiatives this year. According to Sun Life Chief Marketing Officer Mylene Lopa, more will be launched in the 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.” 

Sun Life Asset Management Co., Inc. (SLAMCI) is the mutual fund arm of Sun Life of Canada (Philippines), Inc.  SLAMCI is one of the leading asset management companies in the country with Php57.8 billion in Assets Under Management (AUM) as of April 2017. It currently manages 11 mutual funds collectively called the “Sun Life Prosperity Funds.” 

While Matteo is focused on his #lifegoals, the press asked his his relationship goals with Sarah Geronimo. Will he popped up the question "Will you marry me" soon? Check out the video below for his answer.
