Online trading: The next investment tool for Filipinos

Pre-Internet, trading in the stock market required a physical broker, a working telephone, and a cash or check to fund your transactions. Nowadays, the increase in internet access, the proliferation of online banking, and the willingness of Filipinos to invest beyond banks and physical assets has led to the rise of the next investment tool: online trading.

 

UTrade, the online stock trading platform of Unicapital Securities Inc., is one such company that offers the convenience of an online trading platform, as well as free and easy access to market information and proprietary research reports. Backed by almost 20 years of experience in trading, its clients, both Philippine and foreign residents, can buy and sell any stock listed in the Philippine Stock Exchange.

 

Simply open an account at www.utradeph.com and fill out the online trading application form. Once the account is verified through valid IDs, a minimum initial deposit of only P10,000 can fund the account through accredited banks. An email notification advises clients once the account is active, and trading can begin at once.

 

The platform allows clients to trade, view and modify orders, and even compare the values of different stocks. For easier trading, UTrade has also launched its Stock Investment Program, in which clients can invest a fixed amount at regular intervals on a particular stock. Starting at a minimum investment of P5,000, and funded weekly, monthly, quarterly, or semi-annually, the SIP also allows clients to determine how long regular stock investments are made.

 

Aside from managing portfolios online, UTrade also offers free weekly seminars on the basics of investing in the stock market; and makes available experienced brokers who can guide clients through the investment process, as well as provide recommended stocks depending on the financial goals of the client. With UTrade, securing a bright financial future is just a click away.
