PSE schedules activities for Financial Literacy Week


The Philippine Stock Exchange, Inc. (PSE) has prepared several activities for its Financial Literacy Week, an initiative that is in line with the observance of World Investor Week (WIW) from September 30 to October 4, 2019.

To kick off the week-long celebration, PSE will take part in the first global Ring the Bell for Financial Literacy event spearheaded by the World Federation of Exchanges (WFE). The bell ringing activity is WFEs way of supporting the WIW program of the International Organization of Securities Commissions. It aims to promote the importance of financial literacy and raise awareness about WIW.

We are proud to be among the participating exchanges in this global initiative. We are joining this event as we have long advocated the need for financial literacy in the country, said PSE President and CEO Ramon S. Monzon.

During the week, materials related to investor education and protection will be posted on PSEs social media accounts. There will also be a daily quiz on the Exchanges official Facebook page wherein the winners will receive various PSE merchandise.

An interview with PSE and select regulatory agencies on their investor education and protection programs will be aired during the week in partnership with the ABS-CBN News Channel.

As a closing activity, PSE will hold its weekly stock market 101 seminar on Saturday, October 5. This will mark the start of the Saturday seminar sessions hosted by the Exchange.

The global celebration of World Investor Week may only be until October 4 but we are extending it for a day as we launch a new schedule for our regular basic stock market seminar. We have been receiving requests to hold our weekday seminars on a weekend to accommodate more participants, particularly those who are working and those who live in nearby provinces. So beginning October 5, our seminars will now be held on Saturdays, Mr. Monzon added.

Individuals who would like to attend the free stock market 101 every Saturday may sign up through the PSE Academy website at Announcements on other financial literacy activities such as webinars and roadshows are posted on PSEs official Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram accounts.
