GradMaker app helps parents invest in their kids’ education
MANULIFE Philippines is partnering with celebrity mom Bianca Gonzalez-Intal to educate parents about saving for their children’s college education with GradMaker, a mobile application that offers flexible and convenient investing with just a few clicks. GradMaker, launched in January 2018, is designed for parents who may be too busy to meet with investment counselors or financial advisors. They can get started with just P10,000. Customers can buy policies anytime, subject to terms and conditions, and are not bound to a monthly payment schedule because they decide when to invest. GradMaker invests in professionally managed funds of stocks and bonds to help customers achieve longterm growth. It also gives life insurance coverage of at least 125% of the customer’s single premium.
