On May 17, athlete-singer-actor Matteo Guidicelli, in cooperation with Sun Life Asset Management Company, Inc. (SLAMCI), launched a series of vlogs (video blogs) at B Hotel in Quezon City. The vlogs aim to teach Filipinos about how investing can help make their #lifegoals come true.
To be financially free, it starts with a detailed plan and the willingness to commit to such plan. Though the vlogs, dubbed as ‘Make It Mutual’ with topics that are relevant to personal finance, such as growing one’s money, beating inflation and investing regularly—are geared to empowering Filipinos to be wise in managing and growing their finances.
The vlogs were created for the viewer to easily relate these to real life situations, 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.
This is not the first time that Guiicelli did a financial literacy campaign for SLAMCI. It was in November 2015 when he also supported SLAMCI’s campaign against investment scams and was dubbed as ‘Slam the Scam’. He was glad to be part of it in helping people from getting victimized by scammers like the pyramid scams.
And being a policy holder of Sun Life, it has opened him to be wiser with his finances and where to invest his earnings. He said that with the insurance advisors he has now, “They give me insights on what to invest in and what not to invest in.”
Apart from the insurance policy he insured himself with, he also got Sun Life’s Prosperity Card, which was launched August last year. The card is an investment worth Php5,000, which may be invested in any of the peso-denominated mutual funds managed by SLAMCI under its Sun Life Prosperity Funds. The first-of-its-kind in the market, it has revolutionized mutual funds investing in the country.
“With the prosperity card, it earned me six percent (6%), It is a good start for high school students to start with or the millennial these days to start investing via this card.”
In Cebu, last year, he also opened his restaurant business called Trattoria da Gianni, which is located in Banilad, Cebu City.
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.
The Pre-Valentine presentation offering of Regal Entertainment Incorporated’s ‘Foolish Love’ opens tomorrow, January 25 in cinemas nationwide. The romantic comedy flick is headlined by Angeline Quinto opposite the hunky dramatic actor Jake Cuenca; along with the fast-rising tandem of ToMiho—Tommy Esguerra and Miho Nishida of the Pinoy Big Brother fame.
Based on Jerry Gracio, the screenwriter of the movie, he mentioned that the film is all about the ‘foolishness’ of being in love.
He shared what he envisioned about Quinto’s character so as Cuenca’s, “I was thinking of a middle-aged woman for the lead, Angeline I guess is perfect. I told them that the lead actor should look mysterious and weird. Mukha namang mysterious si Jake.”
The Joel Lamangan film revolves around a little mature relationship (that of Quinto and Cuenca) and a younger pair (the one with ToMiho). Both are foolish in love.
Esguerra and Nishida play baristas in the story but the latter is being pursued by her boss played by Jerald Napoles. Thus, making the film one hilarious ride about being ‘foolish’ when one is in love. Also in the cast is Cai Cortez who completes the three female friends who are ‘foolish’ when they are in love.
