Did you know that the Philippine Stocks Exchange was founded August 28, 1927? Wow! 11 more years before it celebrates the 100th year. Kahit matanda na ang PSE (Pamilihang Sapi ng Pilipinas), Filipinos are not familiar with it. We can’t blame anyone because our education system doesn’t include it in any high school curiculum.
So do you know how many Filipinos invest in the Stock Market today? 5 Million people? Nope, lower than that! 1 Million pinoys? Hindi rin, mas mababa pa!
How many Filipinos are invested in the stock market today?
640,665 is the exact number. That number came from the Stock Market Investor Profile report of the PSE. They surveyed the top 18 online brokerage firms in the country.
This is bad news because it only represents a small percentage of the total Philippine population. It’s not even 1% of the country’s population. That is why PinoyAndMoney is doing it’s best to educate our kababayan’s on how to invest in the stock market.
Despite the gloomy data, we can still see the light at the end of the tunnel! The good news is that the number of Filipinos investing and trading in stocks have grown, rising by 9.4% from 585,562 in 2013 to 640,665 in 2014.
