Pandemic ushers new digital investors into PH

The COVID-19 pandemic brought “huge swaths” of new digital investors to the Philippines, according to a study conducted by US-based broker-dealer DriveWealth.

DriveWealth CEO Bob Cortright said that “this new paradigm of investing is being driven by factors that are breaking down the traditional barriers to investing,” 

He added that “embedded finance platforms are making the markets more accessible than ever before, with mobile technology making it easier for investors of all ages to tap the markets from the comfort of their own homes.”
