Klik Books, a new imprint by PageJump, together with many advocacy groups for financial literacy rise up to the challenge. Financial literacy is the common theme of its two titles to be launched on October. 23. Klik Books aims to deliver otherwise dry concepts with humor and engaging design. The imprint aims to popularize technical topics in the Filipino language to reach a wider audience.

To be formally presented is the book Bidang Misis: Paano Tutugon sa Paghamon Habang OFW si Mister by Gitte Quintos. The self-help book delves into the common experiences of OFW families from the point of view of wives and mothers, who are naturally the treasurers of remittances. The book has an introduction by Vice President Leni Robredo.

Also featured is The Adventures of Pepot Kuripot and Dora Gastadora by Burn Gutierrez and Des Feliciano. The illustrated book captures every Pinoy’s money situation in a funny yet very instructive way. “Through this comic book, financial literacy has been made more understandable and enjoyable. Bravo!,” says preacher and entrepreneur Bo Sanchez of the book.

During the launch, the authors will discuss how financial literacy among various sectors of society can be more engaging and meaningful to our countrymen. The event will be held on October 23, 2 to 4 p.m., at Megatrade Hall in SM Megamall. Among the launch partners are LBC and TV5’s OFW TV.

Four Simple Tests To Do Before Investing Your Hard-Earned Money

Are you familiar with litmus tests? A litmus test is the use of a litmus paper to test the acidity or alkalinity of a solution.

In investing or business, you should also apply a few simple tests before deciding to pull out that hard-earned money from your pocket.

Here are our four simple investment “litmus” tests:

1. The investment offer must be clear and easy to understand.

No hanky-panky’s. No gimmicks. No tricks. No flowery words.

When selecting an investment vehicle or any business opportunity for that matter, make sure that the broker or dealer clearly explains their investment product or services. Investment categories such as stocks, bonds, and pooled funds are some of the most popular paper assets being offered to the public these days. “Hard assets” like gold or real estate may also appeal to you.

Before parting with your money to invest in these assets, make sure that you have attended seminars or trainings provided by the appropriate government financial institutions and have researched about them yourself.

LitmusTest

2. There should be a good “chance”, but not a guarantee, to make money.

While you should be investing in assets that will make you money, an investment should not offer a guarantee to make big profit in a short period of time.

There are investment vehicles such as government or corporate bonds that offer fixed returns after a specific number of years. But don’t expect your money to double within that period since earnings from this instrument is relatively small, just a tad bit higher than “cash” investments like money market and time deposits.

If someone offers you a guaranteed return in the stock market, stay away from it right away.

3. There must be a ready market if you should need to liquidate or sell your investment.

There have been stories of overseas Filipinos investing in real estate and gold bars but were not able to liquidate them at a profit. Some could not sell their properties or condo units because the location is simply not profitable.

When investing in an asset, make sure that there is someone who is willing to buy your investment at a price that you desire and at a profit that matches your personal financial goal.

4. The investment should not be relatively expensive to buy and sell.

Have you heard about people being duped because they believed that they will get big profit if they invested a bigger amount of cash?

A good investment should always be affordable to buy and sell. It should also offer you a reasonable amount of time for you to decide before investing in them.
