How To Start Investing In The Philippine Stock Market?

The first thing to do is to open an account in Philippines Stock Exchange. If you are just near NCR, you can go to their office personally. But if your location is too far away, you can send your application form thru courier (You can see the steps and requirements for this on this link). The following are the steps and requirements in order to do so.

  1. Go to COL Fincancial Office located in PSE Building at Ortigas. You can ride a van/FX going to Tektite. You can use this link to know how to go there:

    Anyways, here’s their complete address:
    24th flr. East Tower, Philippine Stock Exchange Centre,
    Exchange Road, Ortigas Center, Pasig City,1605 Philippines

  2. Choose the account type that fits you. If you are just new in stocks investing, just choose the Easy Investment Program or EIP. It will require you 5,000 pesos as a minimum initial deposit. Other accounts require a minimum initial deposit of Php 25,000, but this is for Regular and Corporate Accounts used for trading.
  3. For Filipino Citizens, bring the following:
    a.) photocopy of government-issued ID (e.g. driver’s license, SSS ID, voter’s ID)
    b.) billing statement (credit card, utility bills) with name, address and date indicated.
    NOTE: Requirements are different for Foreigners (Resident and Non-Resident in Philippines).
  4. Forms that you need to submit are available in COL Financial’s office. Just bring a pen. The initial deposit can also be given to them. Once approved, you will receive your account details or login credentials in the email address you will declare on the form submitted to them.
  5. Go to to try your login credentials once you received them.
  6. If you need more clarification, you can call them at 651-5888.

That’s it! Happy investing! :)
