Investing Book for Pinoys

Hi! My name is Fitz Villafuerte.

I’m a Registered Financial Planner and a regular guest in ANC On The Money. Below is a screen capture of my very first guesting on the show back in 2012. It was an episode where I shared “My Money Story” and how I became a millionaire.

My very first TV guesting in ANC On The Money back in 2012.

My very first TV guesting in ANC On The Money back in 2012.

Back then, I was just a blogger who writes an online journal about financial freedom. I felt really lucky that one of the show’s producers stumbled upon my blog and decided that I’m worthy to be a guest on the TV show.

After the interview, and when my friends saw the episode on TV, they all asked me for help on how they can also learn about investing.

I told them I learned through reading books, and then I gave them the list of those that I read and found helpful – books that was written by Napoleon Hill, Robert Kiyosaki, Dave Ramsey, Warren Buffet and many other bestsellers.

After a few months, most of my friends came back to me and said that they found those books very educational, but they don’t know how to apply their learnings in the Philippine setting.

For example, Dave Ramsey advised in his book that you should maximize your 401K contributions because it’s a great investment. My friends scratched their heads because there’s no 401K in the Philippines, that’s only for Americans!

Why I became an RFP

I love learning, and I really took the time to study the many different types of investments in the Philippines.

But everything I know about investing, I only learned through self-study and experience. I had no formal training on it.

I thought that if I wanted to really help other Filipinos, and not just my friends, on how to become investors, then I should update my knowledge and avail of proper financial education.

And this is why I decided to enroll in the P21,000 RFP Program and worked on becoming a certified Registered Financial Planner.

I believed that by becoming an RFP, I will expand my knowledge about investment planning, and I can help other people much better, especially on how to create an investment portfolio that’s applicable for Filipinos.

When I officially became a Registered Financial Planner, ANC On The Money invited me again to be a guest in the show. This time, as a resource person about wealth management.

That TV appearance was followed by another invitation, and other channels and TV shows also began inviting me to be their guests!

My latest TV guesting in ANC On The Money

If there was one important thing I learned through those times, it’s that a lot of Filipinos have no idea where and how to start investing.

Pinoys want to invest in the stock market, in mutual funds, in real estate – but they don’t know the first steps to take.

And this is the reason why I decided to write a book about investing that caters to Filipinos and one that gives exactly a practical, step-by-step guide.
