Protect Your Familyh

What’s the best protection for your baby?

What’s the best protection for your baby?

When your baby arrives, you begin thinking of your child’s future.

Many begin by opening a bank account for the child, promising to oneself to set aside money every month for the child’s future.  But realistically, with today’s low savings account interest rates of 0.2% effective rate ( after witholding tax), a thousand pesos per month is expected to grow to only ₱245,000 after 20 years ( or total interest of ₱5,000 after 20 years )

The best protection for your child is a combination of equity mutual funds in-trust-for (ITF) your baby, plus term life insurance for the breadwinner with your baby as beneficiary.

If we set up an equity  mutual fund, in-trust-for  your baby, assume 12% growth and invest ₱1,000 per month, we get these projected values:

  • ₱1m to ₱2.3m after 20 years, or
  • ₱3.5m to ₱14m after 30 years or
  • ₱12m to ₱86m after 40 years!

This investment can probably suffice to fund your baby’s college tuition after 18 years, or jumpstart family life on marriage after 30 years, or provide retirement as early as 40 years!

This is a great plan, but we know that what actually happens do not always match our plan.  What if you die too soon?

If the breadwinner is 31 years old or younger.  ₱500 per month can buy ₱1m of life insurance coverage for 18 years.

This means that if the Lord takes you, the breadwinner, home early, and you die too soon in the next 18 years, you can leave ₱1,000,000 for your baby as a parting gift.

With this combination, you protect your baby’s future whether you die too soon, or live long enough to see your child grow!

This solution requires only ₱1,500 a month or about ₱50 per day.
Can you commit ₱50 per day for each of your children?

Financial Literacy FAQ

What do we teach non-members in our free financial seminars?

We generally teach concepts to non-members in the free financial seminars. We teach them the value of simple living, investing early and the power of small repeated actions. We teach them about BENEFITS (what product features do for people) and why financial products are necessary.

We make saving, investing and insurance understandable to the layman because we don’t bamboozle attendees (yet) with technical terms.

IMG Membership Banefits

IMG Membership Benefits can be grouped into four classes: (1) financial literacy, (2) access to financial solutions, (3) discounts on products and services, and (4) business in the financial industry.

What do we teach members?

Members have at least 18 member benefits, including eligibility to attend technical product training, conducted by licensed representatives/trainers of our partners. Partner companies teach members about the FEATURES (features is about the product)

For example:

  • Our insurance product training is handled by Philam.
  • Our mutual fund product training is handled by Rampver Financials.
  • Our Kaiser Long Term/Short Term product training is handled by Kaiser International Healthgroup.

We have three big events every year, two international conventions plus the annual Convention of Champions. The Convention of Champions is usually a two-day event, a training day, and a gala night where IMG honors and recognizes its champions for the past twelve months.

Look at Everything as Training

IMG is on a mission to help 1M Filipino families achieve financial freedom through education by 2020.

We have the best good-hearted mentors, like Joen delas Penas, Noel Arandilla, Bart Borja, and Rex Mendoza,  to inspire and provide directions in this mission.

But Brother Bo Sanchez is perhaps our most inspiring mentor, who “pushes” us to excel and be the best we can be, so that we can be blessings to more people. In our 2015 RISE Convention, he started by saying “Jesus was a businessman!”

He noted that Jesus

  • spend 17 years as a businessman/entrepreneur,
  • spent only only 3 years in preaching, healing and driving out demons.
  • was an apprentice carpenter at age 13
  • apart from his trade, did accounting, collected payments, entertained customer complaints

Jesus sanctified business! Look at everything as training!

He told IMG members:

  • “Your service, your product, is the financial freedom, and financial well-being of your customers.”
  • “Go out there with pride, go out there with joy. There’s nothing to be ashamed of.”
  • “You do not win the battle in the battlefield.”
  • “You win the battle, before the battle begins.”

Bo Sanchez related the story of David and Goliath. David said:
“I fought and defeated the bear and the lion when I was the shepherd.”

David saw the bear and the lion as training.

Bo added:
Look at everything as training! You are facing your lion, you are facing your bear right now. If you see this as training, and you endure, and you persevere, and you don’t give up, it is training you because the Goliath is coming.

And when you defeat the lion and the bear right now, you will have all that you need to defeat the Goliath. And when you defeat the Goliath, you are going to become King.

“I fought and defeated the bear and the lion when I was the shepherd.
— David”

Bo Sanchez ended with two short messages

Always choose growth over money.
If you choose growth, the money will follow.
If you choose money, the growth will not follow.

Grow in your personal life
Grow in your intellectual life
Grow in your relational life
Grow in your spiritual life

Look at everything as training.

See everything as training because bigger things are going to happen in your life.

Live a fantastic life.

11 Reasons to be an IMG Member

by Coach Bobet Prudente

Two years ago, I “retired” from my corporate job, and planned to start my own business intelligence company. But something happened along the way.

I became an IMG member, and a happy warrior in the fight against poverty.

IMG started its mission to help Filipino families become financially free more than 18 years ago. Through the years, we helped Filipinos learn about money, provided access to hundreds of financial products, and helped many save money through discounts and rebates.

Here are eleven reasons to be among the more than one hundred thousand (100,000+) IMG members worldwide.

1. Financial education workshop

IMG has been giving free financial seminars for many years.

IMG recently launched its Global Campaign for Financial Literacy, and the target is one million financially literate families by 2020.There are now five new two-hour workshops on (1) increasing cash flow and debt management; (2) building a solid financial foundation and getting proper protection; (3) asset accumulation and growth; (4) asset and wealth preservation, and retirement planning; and (5) entrepreneurship.

IMG members get a FREE workbook to use in the workshops.

2. Free financial check-up

When you have questions/concerns about your health, you get a medical check-up. When you have car problems, you go get a car check-up.And if you have questions about your wealth and finances?

IMG members get FREE financial check-up from their trainers and mentors. Members sit beside their trainers to prepare personal financial needs analysis and create personal financial plan/blueprint.

Top 5 Reasons to be an IMG Member

1. Financial Workshops.
2. Financial Checkup
3. Asset Preservation Services.
4. Access and discounts to car, home and other non-life insurance.
5. Discount on real estate from SMDC, Ayala Land,DMCI and Vista Land.

3. Access to asset preservation services

We all strive to accumulate assets in our lifetime to pass to our family and next generation. And when God calls us home (unfortunately, sometimes a little sooner than expected), everybody tells our family they are sorry for the loss, but the government will first freeze your assets until your heirs pay up to 20% of the estate value in taxes.

Asset preservation is about an orderly transition of your assets to your heirs, according to your plans and wishes, and possibly about paying less taxes.IMG members have access to tools and services to setup corporations for asset preservation or other purposes through its corporate services partner company.

4. Discount on car, home, property, and other non-life insurance products

Do you need insurance for your home? Car? Equipment? Many people need insurance for many reasons, and sometimes it is a pain to get hold of the proper insurance agent, and pay sometimes expensive premiums.IMG members have access to a multitude of non-life insurance products from respected providers such as MAPFRE Insurance, QBE Insurance, Malayan Insurance, UCPB Gen, Prudential Guarantee, and many more.

IMG members also get discounts in the form of rebates on their own insurance requirements.If you own a business with non-life insurance requirements, the discounts on insurance alone is reason enough to be a member!

5. Discount from real estate companies

Many Filipinos eventually buy real estate, maybe a house and lot, or a condo, through a middleman such as a real estate agent or broker.IMG members buy directly from real estate giants like SM Development Company (SMDC), Ayala Land (ALI), Vistaland (VLL), and DMCI Homes, effectively bypassing the middlemen.

IMG members usually get another 2 to 3% discount on real estate purchases.On a P3M property, that is about 2% x P3,000,000 or P60,000.

Another reason to be an IMG member!

6. Access to affordable life insurance products and services

IMG members can enroll in its IMG group yearly renewable term plan with Philam Life, the biggest life insurance company in the Philippines. This plan is the most inexpensive in the market. For members below 36 years old, it costs about P3,600 ANNUAL premium to get a P1,000,000 life insurance coverage, with riders for accidental death, dismemberment and disablement (ADDD), including a P500,000 terminal illness benefit (TIB). That means a P1,000,000 coverage for as little as P10 a day.This is another benefit available to IMG members (with additional requirements).<

7. Access to short-term and long-term healthcare products and services

Most Philippine HMOs offer short term health care products to big companies for the benefit of their employees. This provides excellent healthcare to the generally young and healthy corporate employees while they are employed.Long term healthcare is like “pre-paid” healthcare.

Individuals pay for healthcare while they are relatively young and healthy and productive, planning to use the healthcare when they are old, sickly, unemployed or retired.Kaiser International Healthgroup Inc, a duly-accredited HMO in the Philippines (I think the third biggest HMO) registered as a Healthcare Provider and Accredited Broker for Other Health Care Companies, offers both short-term and long-term healthcare products, numerous corporate, schoool and government accounts ( House of Representatives, Court of Appeals, Public Attorney’s Office, Department of Agrarian Reform, Technological University of the Philippines, Honda Motor World, Makati Finance Corporation, Royal Oaks International School, Seminario de San Agustin, etc).

IMG members have access to innovative healthcare products from Kaiser International, Inc, including long term healthcare with investment component, and senior healthcare for age 61 – 100.

8. Enjoy zero load benefits to various mutual funds

Mutual funds are among the least understood secrets of the wealthy, mainly because mutual fund companies do not advertise or do much marketing. Yet, mutual funds are among the safest and easiest way to steadily grow your money.

The normal way to invest in these companies is to do your own research, choose, then go to each mutual fund company office, and pay up to 3.5% sales load (or commission) for those who handled the transaction.

IMG members can go to free mutual fund training and briefing sessions every month and discuss concerns with certified investment solicitors. Members consult other members, investment solicitors, even respected leaders in the mutual fund industry such as Rex Mendoza, found chairman of Rampver Financials to decide on which mutual funds to invest in.

Members can open mutual fund accounts for any of the 40+ mutual funds from Soldivo Funds, PhilEquity Management Inc (PEMO), PhilAm Asset management Inc(PAMI), First Metro Asset Management (FAMI), SunLife Financials, and ATRAM, from the IMG Financial Center in Makati, Cebu and Davao.AND the best part is….

IMG members enjoy ZERO load benefits when investing in any of these funds.

  • If you invest P100,000 directly in mutual fund through traditional channels, you may pay up to P3,500 in sales loads, effectively investing only P96,500.
  • If you invest P100,000 as an IMG members, through IMG, there is zero load and you invest the entire P100,000.

9. Business ownership program opportunity in the financial industry.

IMG members who want to increase their cashflow can earn extra income by helping other people save and invest, while keeping their job or business.Access to all of IMG’s partner companies is an optional business opportunity for members who could use it to build a career or big business in the financial industry.

Membership benefits.

6. Access to Life Insurance products.
7. Access to Healthcare products and services.
8. Access to mutual funds at ZERO load. Exclusive to IMG members.
9. Business Ownership program.

Enjoy Your SSS Pension – P1,200 per month?

by Bobet Prudente

Note from the author: when first written, minimum pension was ₱1,200.  With an across-the-board increase of ₱1,000 in 2017, all pension amounts were increased accordingly. 

Imagine retiring, and getting a pension of ₱2,200 per month.

If you read the newspapers, you probably remember President P’Noy was in the headlines in early 2016, for vetoing a proposed law raising the pension of SSS retirees by ₱2,000 per month. He said doing so will bankrupt the SSS fund.

It was such a distressing news. SSS could not afford to raise the pension by ₱2,000?

President Duterte thought otherwise.  Under his administration, the SSS implemented a ₱1,000 per month across the board increase in early 2017 for all SSS pensioners and is set to implement a second round in 2019.  But this will reportedly bankrupt SSS by 2026 only eight years from now!

Maximum Contribution for 30 years

I computed how much I’d get as pension when I turn 60. I was a senior manager for more than 30 years, and hence paid the maximum SSS contribution for 30 years. Therefore, I expect the highest possible pension for 30 years contribution.

And the number I got was….. (drum roll please) ….. ₱ 10,900 per month!

What?

How could a highly paid employee, paying maximum contribution for 30 years, survive on ₱10,900 per month when he retires?

But that is NOT the sad part. ₱10,900 is for those who paid maximum. How about those who paid less?

What if you paid for only 10 years?

There are Filipinos who paid less, and contributed for 10 only years.

The minimum pension after paying 10 years is ₱2,200 per month!
Can you imagine living with a pension equivalent to ₱70 PER DAY?

The maximum pension after paying 10 years is ₱7,400 per month.

What if you paid for more years?

If you contributed:

  • for 10 years, your pension will be ₱2,200 – P7,400 per month.
  • for 15 years, your pension will be ₱2,200 – P7,400 per month. (same as 10 years!)
  • for 20 years, your pension will be ₱3,400 – P7,700 per month.
  • for 30 years. your pension will be ₱3,400 – P10,900 per month.
  • for 40 years, your pension will be ₱3,400 – P14,100 per month.
  • for 45 years, your pension will be ₱3,400 – P15,700 per month.
After contributing the maximum SSS premiums for 20 years, you will be eligible to a maximum pension of ₱7,700

After contributing the maximum SSS premiums for 20 years, you will be eligible to a maximum pension of ₱7,700

We must build our own retirement fund!

Obviously, we can’t depend on the government or the SSS to provide us enough during our retirement. We must take control of our future, and build our own retirement fund. Otherwise, we might be among those who will retire with a ₱2,200 pension, or if you contribute the maximum premium for 30 years, ₱10,900 per month.

Do we want to prepare for your retirement?
We must take control of our future, so we will not retire dirt-poor.

Would you like to attend our free 1-hour “Building Your Future – Controlling Your Money” seminar in various locations, to get financial education?

After attending the Building Your Future seminar, you can attend workshops 1 to 4 at the
World Centre for FREE.

The third workshop is particularly interesting if you are planning to build your retirement fund.

Take Charge of Your Children’s Future!

By Bobet Prudente

I remember 39 years ago, when I first enrolled at the University of the Philippines in Diliman, Quezon City. I was a full scholar and didn’t have to pay for tuition fee, but we were still assessed. And our typical assessment was about P300 tuition and fees for the entire semester. Not P300 per unit, it was about P300 for the entire semester.

UP Diliman

The Oblation at the University of the Phillipines in Diliman, Quezon City.
By Rinangel Buenavente, Crispin Sta. Ines [Public domain or Public domain], via Wikimedia Commons

Last January, my youngest son enrolled in the same campus at UP Diliman, and his tuition and other fees totalled P30,000. And I think UP has not increased tuition fees for at least 5 years.

Let us do the math.
* P300 x 10 = P3,000
* P300 x 100 = P30,000

In my lifetime, in 39 years, the tuition fee in my school increased 100 times, or about a compounded rate of 12.5% every year.

How much would YOU pay for YOUR children’s college education?

Most of you will be sending kids to college in less than 15 years, so maybe you will not pay 100x, but perhaps 8x to 10x what YOU paid when you were in college?

I talked to a seminar attendee a few weeks ago, and asked him how much he paid in college. He said, P15,000 tuition fee per semester.

Let us do the math again:

  • in 15 years, maybe tuition will increase only eight times.
  • P15,000 x 8 = P90,000 in one semester
  • P90,000 x 8 semesters = P720,000

And that is just for tuition. How about other school fees, transportation, allowance?
Let us say you spend another P280,000, and the cost of sending one child to college is P1,000,000.

If the basis is P30,000 (like what I paid in UP Diliman), the cost of sending one child to college in 15 years, will probably be P2,000,000

If you have two children, that is P2,000,000 to P4,000,000 you’ll be spending in 15 years.  Are you preparing to send your children to college?

Are you saving and investing so you’ll have an extra two to four million pesos in 15 years?  Are you saving enough, so you’ll have some money left over for your retirement?

Would you like learn ways to increase your cashflow, save and invest, so that you can send your children to college?

IMG launched a new seminar “Building Your Future” in January 2016 to help Filipino families achieve financial freedom through financial education, saving and investing. Our goal is to have 1 million financially educated families by 2020 ( hashtag #1M2020 )

Would you like to attend our free 1-hour “Building Your Future – Controlling Your Money” seminar in various locations, to get financial education?

Would you like to take charge of your children’s future?

Why Does IMG Recommend Kaiser and Soldivo Products

(Author’s note: I encountered a post in social media which said IMG and Kaiser are owned by the same group of people and that this is the reason why IMG is pushing Kaiser. I quickly wrote a lengthy reply which I polished a little and reproduce below.)

You will note that the Ayala group of companies, the SM group of companies, the Gokongwei group of companies, the Metrobank group of companies and various other groups of companies have many common directors and incorporators in the different companies within the same group. Interlocking directorates are a common facet of the corporate world. It just means multiple companies in the same group are employing synergies to work and cooperate towards attaining interlocking goals.

For the IMG group, the goal is to help Filipino families achieve financial freedom through financial education,  excellent but affordable financial products and powerful business platforms.

Why Does IMG Recommend Kaiser Long Term Health Care?

Most HMO companies today cater to short term healthcare of people who are generally young and healthy. There are very few who cater to senior citizens. Most HMO plans are for employees who are currently working and their dependents. Hence, the moment they resign, or retire, they and their dependents lose their coverage unless the former employee decides to shoulder the substantial costs of premium. In most cases, the resigned or retired employee, and dependent end up with no coverage.

The irony is you get excellent healthcare while you are young and healthy but you do not get healthcare when you are old or sickly or can no longer afford to pay. Most HMOs also have very little life protection coverage for members.

You will note that there are no viable long term healthcare products in the country today, except the Kaiser Ultimate and Kaiser Premium Health Builder products.

The premise of long term health care is very simple and logical.

  • pay for your health care today while you are young, and healthy and productive and can afford to pay, then
  • enjoy healthcare when you are old, or sickly, or can no longer pay.

If later, you need healthcare and you do not have short term healthcare, use your long term health care plan for hospitalization. If the Lord decides to take you home early, the long term health care plan gives your family the proceeds of life insurance. Hence you use your investment to get health and life protection within the maturity period.

And when the plan matures, you have the option to get the balance of your investment plus earnings, or keep it for future healthcare purposes.

In the case of Kaiser Ultimate, you pay for 7 years, to get 20 years of health AND life protection. On maturity, you can opt to get your investments including all profits/interests, or keep your fund growing at 7 to 10% compounded annual growth rate, definitely much more than the current 0.2% growth in savings accounts. You effectively have health care protection until you have “spent” all your health care investments.

If you paid your HMO for short term plans, and pay for 7 years, you will get 7 years of protection, and no more protection after the 7th year. Whatever benefits are unused at the end of each policy year are gone forever. None of the premiums are paid back to you.

One can avail of Kaiser short- and long-term plans whether one is an IMG member or not. IMG considers Kaiser Ultimate as a complete level 1 investment, and very strongly recommends it, especially to its own members.

Kaiser Ultimate Health Builder

Kaiser Ultimate Health Builder is a level 1 product which provides different benefits at different periods

Kaiser Ultimate by itself is difficult to understand.

  • If people compare it to short term healthcare, they will say there are better short term plans.
  • If people compare it to insurance, they will say there are better insurance options.
  • If people compare it to investment, they will say there are better investments.

This is because Kaiser Ultimate is an entry level product designed to give you the most basic and complete initial protection benefits while starting your investment.

  • If you think it does not have enough short term health protection, you can complement it with additional health care of your choice
  • If you think it does not have enough insurance coverage, you can complement it with additional PhilamMOST group yearly renewable term life insurance (available only to IMG members with active Kaiser long term plan)
  • if you think it does not have enough investment value, you can complement it with additional investments in the mutual fund(s) of your choice.

The combination Kaiser Ultimate + Philam MOST + MUtual Funds is unbeatable.

Why Does IMG Recommend the Soldivo Funds?

The Soldivo Bond Fund  (a bond fund) and Soldivo Strategic Growth Fund (an equity mutual fund) were launched only in October 2014, at below P1.00 par value.  As young funds, they have the potential to aggressively and quickly grow.

SSGF is considered a moderate-to-high risk type of fund, investing in shares of the companies listed in the primary and secondary boards of the Philippine Stock Exchange. Recommended for investors with a higher risk appetite who require the growth potential of the equity markets. Its investment objective is capital growth with returns and inflows derived out of investments in equity securities. This is one of the best options for investors who want to access and capitalize on the immense growth opportunities of the Philippine equity market.

The Soldivo funds are managed by respected personalities in local finance, led by Rex Mendoza, former CEO of Philamlife and former adviser to the group CEO of the AIA Group.  Rex Mendoza was also at the helm of Philam Asset Management Inc (PAMI) during the explosive growth years for PAMI mutual funds. We believe the fund management group has the requisite expertise to drive the growth of the funds.

Kaiser International is a major investor in Soldivo funds.  The stronger the Soldivo funds are, the more secure the Kaiser investments are, and thus, the better service Kaiser can provide to its members and planholders.

Soldivo mutual funds are available for retail to IMG members only at this time.

IMG includes Soldivo Bond Fund in its list of recommended bond funds, and Soldivo Strategic Growth Fund in its list of recommended equity mutual funds.  IMG recommends a combination of bond and equity mutual funds as the preferred mode of paper investment.
