How many Filipinos invest in the stock market?

A recent survey conducted by the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) showed that very few Filipinos participate in the stock market.

According to the survey, there were only 430,681 accounts being maintained for Filipino investors by PSE trading participants in 2007 – representing not even 1/2 of 1% of the 89 million population of the Philippines.
