Financial Fitness Run: February 22, 2015

This is a run that underscores the importance of being financially secure after retirement. Your ability to achieve a secure retirement and live comfortably after your working years depends on how you get started, how you keep it going, and invest wisely. If you’ve not yet initiated a savings program, start today — the hardest step is getting started.

The key to long-term success is establishing and then sticking to your savings plan. This is important for a more secure retirement. So, be disciplined and remember that your savings program is for your future.

The “Financial Fitness Run” is the kick-off event of CFA Philippines’ Putting Investors First, a month-long investor awareness campaign.

The CFA Philippines decided to introduce the fun run into the program since over the past decade, running as part of a healthier lifestyle has become a well-entrenched activity in the Philippines. It’s a sport, a lifestyle, and a hobby that cuts across all socio-economic and cultural borders, from little children to retirees, students to working professionals, including both weekend warriors and serious fitness buffs.

The “Financial Fitness Run” aims to capitalize on the popularity of this sport in order to generate a broad-based heightened level of awareness for the “investor rights”.

This year’s race will be held on FEBRUARY 22, 2015 at the Bonifacio Global City!
