BPI-Philam offers easy adulting and total wellness to millennials

Financial planning is a topic most millennials rarely consider. This is often seen in behaviors of impulse purchases - using their hard-earned money in things that are temporarily meaningful, that at times lead to a feeling of regret, or what is simply called a grudge purchase.


A Goldman Sachs study revealed that generation "ME ME ME" would rather save up for vacations and leisure activities to enjoy their life now than invest in their future--marriage, a home, their own business, retirement plans. This despite financial institutions constantly encouraging them to favor savings and investments.

For Surendra Menon, CEO of BPI-Philam, millennials can choose to have the best of both worlds.

“They can live their present life to the fullest and have a secured future at the same time,” said Menon. "It's a misunderstanding that has to be clarified - protecting your future is simply making sure you can enjoy the lifestyle you have now and for the years to come."

A recent Google and Temasek study predicts Filipino online shoppers to grow to 42 million by 2025, spending $19 billion (₱918 billion) and a big contributor to this growth is the rise of smartphone users. Today, 61% of Filipino adults own a smartphone and use their devices to communicate, work, and shop wherever they are, creating more productive days, foregoing Manila traffic, and skipping crowded malls altogether. 


Shopee, the leading eCommerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan, has leveraged this mobile trend to great success, converting shoppers from buying offline to online by creating a convenient platform that combines the authenticity of a marketplace with payment and logistical support.
