Having to compete in a new but growing field, Garcia says that the iBank Trust Center sets itself apart through its service and by being future-oriented.
“When clients come to us, we are determined to give them the best service they have ever experienced. We offer them products that are cutting-edge, products with the right features, because we are doing things for the future,” Garcia reveals.
“Investment management in the Philippines is at a relatively underdeveloped state. There are some real hurdles that we need to clear in the area of investor education before investment products that don’t carry guaranteed rates of return can garner mass appeal. We are here because we believe that in the future, Filipinos will approach investing and financial planning with the same level of sophistication as investors in first-world countries,” he concludes.
