There’s a good quote by writer William Arthur Ward about money habits: “Before you spend, earn. Before you invest, investigate. Before you retire, save. Before you die, give.”
This simple yet meaningful quote essentially captures the correct money mindset everyone should have.
It also summarizes the time-tested process of how a person can indeed make money and ultimately be wealthy: Earn, Save, Invest.

better to invest in mutual funds and unit investment thrust funds, the return is much higher
BDO is total cr@p when it comes to deposit products. It’s as if utang na loob mo sa kanila na may interest pa at all yung deposits mo. At may “contact BDO” pa ha, as if naman aabot ng at least 3% at those amounts.
i actually agree with james.. BDO and other banking company. pag nag invest ka at kkunin muna pera mo prang ikaw pa ang may utang sa kanila.
for the time deposit, is the percentage interest rate monthly of per anual?

Hi bdo…paano po mgcompute ng interest if i deposit 100000 for time deposit good for 1 year?
P750 lng. walang bisa. 100k = 0.75% interest per annum(a year)
.25% interest rate per annum my ass!

100k = 250 tubo in 1 yr .25% interest,
100k = 500 tubo in 1 yr .50% interest,
they have deduction charges and fees
so luge ka pa haha.
Milyones talaga??? What if 5k lAng yun kaya mo i time deposit magkano yun sa loob ng 30 days
I could not find any information anywhere whether BDO’s Time Deposit is compound interest, and its compounding frequency (daily, weekly, or monthly).
I would appreciate if anybody out there knows.
