10 Dec

Some of us will be receiving our 13th month pay soon. Here are PinoyInvestor’s Top 5 tips how to best utilize this hard-earned money of yours.

1. Allot a certain portion of your 13th month pay to savings. Start with 20%; better if it can go higher. These savings can be added to your emergency fund or investment fund which will surely benefit you in the future.

2. Start investing. If you haven’t started yet, use a portion of your 13th month pay to get your feet wet in the world of investing. You have a lot of options — Stocks, Time Deposits, Mutual Funds, or Unit Investment Trust Funds. If you’re already invested, top up your current investment this month. Consider it a Christmas gift to your future self!
