How can OFWs invest in the Philippines?

Paano mag-i-invest ang mga OFW sa Pilipinas, specially if they don’t want their relatives at home to know that they have an investment. Kasi baka mautang lang eh. Haha.

    Before you delve into any type of investment, you must consider the risks involved. That being said here is what I did (I am currently based overseas).

    Aside from putting money into my Philippine-based personal account, I was also looking for investment opportunities that can be done remotely (online). I also understand why you want to keep your relatives not informed on your every financial transactions. One of the things I did was investing in the stock market. I got in touch with an online broker and asked my sister to process my application papers and all requirements. Once I have my account online, I can fund it remotely through wire-tranfers (bank-to-bank) without relatives knowing my transactions. You can also fund your account if you have online bank account (depends on the broker). Right now, I keep enough cash on my account so that if I go home to the Philippines, I can withdraw it anytime (well you have to wait for 2-3 days). When there is an opportunity to buy stocks, I also do it. So yeah start giving back (investing) to our country without telling your relatives.
