IMG -- International Marketing Group. Any info?

Hello everyone!  :hello:

I'm a newbie in investing and I have been doing my research and trying my best to understand everything you guys are discussing. Honestly I prefer investing in mutual funds because I don't really think I have the time or expertise to check the stock market day in day out.

I just wanted to get more information about IMG and what they are really about since a couple of weeks ago I joined one of thier seminars. In the seminar they told us that they are not going to sell us anything and that they are not an insurance company. They also kept telling us that they are going to teach us to be our own financial experts and educate us how to be a good investor. We also need to complete the whole course or attend all 31 seminars or sessions. However, for us to continue with the seminar we need to be a member of IMG and to be a member we need to pay P3,900.00. I then asked what's the P3.9K for and what they told me made me feel uneasy. The P2,500 is for the membership and we will also get this kit that will help us to be a successfull investor. The remaining P900 will be for our license because if we wanted to invest we need to have a license ( license stock broker? ). After all that we were then told that we need to get ourselves to be insured so that we are fully protected, in case we have a sudden sickness, accident or if we die too early, so technically we will be protected and also our  investments.

I could never recall when I first made my investment in mutual find that there's a need to do all this? What do you think? Is this for real or they are just scamming me?

Oh yeah let me add this part, it felt and sounded like "pyramiding."

What ever information or education, good or bad I get from this post will be greatly appreciated. Thank you po.  :rakenrol:

Hi Jbig,

IMG is International Marketing Group. Think of it like this: McDonalds is selling Coca-Cola but McDonald does not manufacture Coca-Cola. They're merely distributing the Coca-Cola products. IMG is like McDonalds. They are merely distributing investment and healthcare products from other providers. IMG is legitimate. It's registered in SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission). I understand your position. And it's good that you exercise prudence. Of course you can invest in mutual funds without paying the P3900. That P3900 is only if you want to become a broker meaning you want to earn commissions by offering the healthcare and investment products distributed by IMG to others. But if you don't want to become a broker, you can still invest. You don't need to pay P3900. The problem is so many brokers in IMG wants to make a sale instead of really helping the people first. I too am a broker in IMG but I don't force people to join the group if they don't want. I want to make this clear: YOU CAN INVEST IN MUTUAL FUNDS OR ANY PRODUCTS OFFERED BY IMG WITHOUT PAYING THE P3900. JUST GO TO THE CASHIER AND ASK FOR A FORM (OF YOUR DESIRED MUTUAL FUND COMPANY) AND FILL UP THAT FORM THEN START INVESTING.

Regarding insurance/healthcare, it's up to you if you want to have one. If you don't, then don't get one. And one more thing, IMG is not pyramiding or networking. Although it could be mistaken for one if you do not really understand the concept of pyramiding and networking. It's a legitimate company. You can check with SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) also and verify everything.

God bless you and be successful,

Josh Royon

You have chosen the wrong path. stick with the basics. This is a big misunderstanding. No one has the right to question the authority of rod alex and doc.

^You should always have the right to question authority. It does not make for an easy life, but you should have the right.

Besides, if they are up to no good (and I'm not saying they are), it would make them hone their methods better! Ingat!

I have been using IMG as my broker here Dubai for the last 2yrs on my MF investments there in the Philippines.
I use the "value added services" like courier of MF documents from/to Dubai-Manila instead of me paying for these extra expenses + normal market update from RSA about investing in the Philippines.

A co-PMT member is on process on transferring her GSIS MF from in-house to IMG Brokerage so she can get her certificates for delivery free of cost here in UAE.

If you want to attend the entire Personal Financial Worshop series, then you need to be a member.
Otherwise, if your capable to compute your financial goals without aid of others, knows your total goals in life, knows why savings is really important and knows the mechanism of investment/protection, then you can buy directly on the cashier.
MFs handle by IMG are Philam, FAMI, Philequity. As far as I know, IMG don't have their own fund because they are in brokerage business not fund managing business.

Now which one of you here, its your decision moving forward.

@Allan,

Have you tried to explore the possibility of being a member
and thereby bypassing paying of sales load or it doesn't work
that way?

@gatsmavi
Citisec is purely stock brokerage. Citisec is geared to people who are self directed investor/trader with stocks.
IMG is financial brokerage (savings, investments, protection). Geared towards people who likes non active investing like mutual funds.

@mxherr5
I became a member here sa Dubai in 2009.
Im not much about the sales load stuff of the MF, since by default, I have been savings in MF as part of my goals.

    Apr 18, 2017, 03:09 AM
  • MPeralejo: Very bad management service. I purchase unit in the 18th floor with expected turn over on 4/2016 which was delayed until 2017. I was told that the balance has to be paid off before turn over in January 2017 and paid the balance in full 3/9/17 with request to expedite. The same with my mother in-law's unit at 15th floor which was paid 2 weeks before mine. Until now, they will not turn over the unit and can only provide excuses that the engineering dept. is working on it. My aunt who is our representative/interior designer only has till May 14th to stay in the Philippines to get the units ready for my vacation in Jun 1st but they are now telling me that the turn over will be May 22, 2017 plus 1 week. They have receive our money since 3/9 and my mother in-laws in February, yet they want more than 3 months to turn over. By then, i am out of representative/interior designer that I would have to hire another and not only that, my family and I will not have a place to stay on our vacation therefore, i would need to rent elsewhere. SMDC is not willing to cover my losses nor do they know the meaning of "EXPEDITE". This company is a scam! They want your money and not willing to deliver on time. Is the government not regulating this kind of SCAM! I would rather receive a full refund than deal with this company. Don't buy from SMDC. It will be a nightmare for you!
