Webinar for tips on personal finances and savings


    The past year’s crises have underscored the role of wise spending in achieving financial security. There is now a notable increase in the number of Filipinos—young adults particularly—who have ceased to be excessive spenders and are cleverly eyeing more meaningful purchases and investments.

    Successful property platform Ohmyhome is well aware of this and aims to aid these individuals in pursuing their goal through its webinar series called OhTalks, which will air its third episode on February 27, at 3 p.m., via Facebook live. T

    For its upcoming episode, OhTalks will explain how our daily spending habits can influence how we work towards financial security. Entitled “Personal Finances: Your Day-to-Day Expenses That Could Have Turned to Savings,” this episode will feature two speakers—Edessa Montano, Senior Associate Sales Director of SM Development Corporation, and Mark Emmanuel Canlas, department head in the Bank of the Philippine Islands.

    An expert on housing investment, Edessa Montano has been in the real estate industry since 2004. Montano has been with SM Development Corporation since 2011, consistently making it to the top three associate sales directors for the SMDC Sales Group for the past seven years.

    Meanwhile, Mark Emmanuel Canlas is currently the Division Head of Economic Research, Credit Information, Special Projects, Product Integration and Real Estate Vetting Division, Corporate Credit Products Group of the Bank of the Philippine Islands.

    Canlas has proven his expertise in policy influencing, research, project management, policy advice, sovereign industry/corporate credit analysis, and financial analysis, both locally and internationally.

    “With the subjects that are up for discussion, consumers will surely learn to manage their expenditures and start saving more for what they actually need in life,” Ohmyhome co-founders Race and Rhonda Wong say. “For instance, they can eventually invest in property or engage in a multitude of business opportunities that can grow their money.”

    Aligned with the trusted and reliable platform’s vision, OhTalks is part of Ohmyhome’s commitment to help customers learn to be smart spenders and investors—prepared for whatever challenges they may encounter down the road.
