Title: OFW: Any Investment / Business sa Pinas while Abroad??
Post by: winshe on February 09, 2010, 05:41:18 pm
Fellow OFW, please share your investments or business sa pinas while working abroad..

I was able to watched in TFC ( forgot the show ) that OFW should try investing or putting up a business habang OK pa ang kita aborad, para di mawalan ng kabuluhan ang pinagpapagurang pera..

Please share your business knowledge and what kind of business / investment you have right now while living & working abroad...

ako din interested eh pero parang mahirap gawin ito .. ive thought of mutual funds... parang stocks yun pero parang ang hirap aralin ... may separate thread for this..

investment siguro buy lots, properties tapos kung meron naman kayo mapagkakatiwalaan pwede magfranchise then dapat meron mag run nung business kaso dapat talaga hands on sa business para maensure na smooth sailing hindi ba.

siguro safest thing to do is to buy properties or things that will appreciate the value para meron ka another alternative kapag nawalan ng work abroad..

mahirap magbusiness kasi kapag hindi ikaw personally na andun. bihira lang ang makarinig ako na successfule business ng isang ofw na iba ang nagm-manage.  Mga success stories, normally siguro pag asawa ang nagmamanage on the behalf of the OFW.  Pero hindi din lahat.  Kadalasan nalulusaw ang capital.

As for the lots and properties, puede din. Pero dapat doble ingat din. Kasi ako mismo, hindi ako convinced sa pag appreciate ng property satin.  Kung wala naman kami sa Pinas, nakakatakot nga. Kasi hindi naman kaya ng gobyerno natin protektahan ang mga may kaya. In fact, kung squatt-an ang place mo, mas lalo pa pro-protektahan ng gobyerno yung nagsquat kasi sila daw ang kawawa.  :o

so para sakin, kung magb-business man ako, mas mabuti siguro magbusiness sideline kung asan ako.  puede mag buy and sell, etc.  as a sideline, on weekends or internet.

If you want to trade stocks, you can try...

For property investment, buy a condominium or a lot inside a gated community.

^ regarding stocks, isa pa yan.  pag nagtrade ka, laging nanghuhula kasi you wont have the time to monitor which company is doing what. unless may time ka. or you are a broker yourself para alam mo where to go. 

ang pananaw ko sa mga companies na yan, hindi masyado nagd-dividends, hindi naman din masyado nagtataas ang price. pabigla bigla ang taas/baba ng price, and kung nagkataon na may deadline ka sa work or ibang iinaasikaso, wala na, hindi mo na na take advantage yung oras na dapat ka nag'sell' or nag'buy'. 

tapos sa pagbili ng stocks, may commission ka dapat bayaran. tapos once you want to dispose narin, meron din exit fee. in the end, ang kumikita mga nasa stocks lang or yung mga andun ang line of work.  for the companies naman, hindi nanga nag appreciate ang stock value, kaliwa't kanan pa ang bigayan ng bonuses sa employees. magugulat ka sa mga bonuses ng mga taga san miguel, petron, meralco employees, but when you look at how your money in the stocks earned through the years, WALA!

sorry ha, sobra na ata ako ng nega... or talagang ultra conservative investor lang kasi ako. Pero kahit na ganito, lagi ko kasi nakikita mga negative sides, maybe my net worth could have been more kasi conservative ako sa mga investments ko.  pero am proud to say naman na puede na kami magretire at an early age of 40yo if we want to.  ayoko palang nga kasi marami pa puede mangyari, again, better to be ultra conservative  ;)

Ang experience ko naman sa stocks...
Stocks:
Wag pumili ng basura stocks...sa una laki kita pero babawiin din yan.

Mas ok sa blue chips- gumagalaw naman siya, ok ang SM, AP sa akin.
 

Dividends + Capital Appreciation

But of course, , you have to learn technical analysis before buying any stocks to guide you when to enter & exit.

Banks:
Pwede ring hanap kayo ng bank na malaki interest, Time deposit for 5 years- ZERO tax with at least 5% interest net.  Pag mas malakas loob, lagay sa Rural Bank, as high as 8% pa net for 5 years. 

Philippines T bills or Bonds- ok din,  they fetch around 5% pa


Property

Gold- pwedeng actual gold or ETFs

Long term fixed investments also.  (nasa fixed side kasi ako)
- Mutual funds on fixed investments (pero medyo turn off ako on some recently)
- RoPs
- maya't maya minsan nag-o-offer ang mga banks ng special investments (BPI, Metro, etc) - subordinated notes ng mga companies.  they range 5-10 years, minsan may 15 years din.

On my case naman, i have invested 250k php sa business ng brother in law ko... and I will earn dividends... Confident naman kaming mag-asawa sa business niya tsaka alam naman namin na kaya niyang ibalik ang 250k in case magka-problem... Sabi niya our 250K can double in 1 - 2 years, not sure how, pero sana nga....

Dati, im planning to set-up an internet cafe sa tabi ng house ng parents ko since naka-name naman sa aming magkakapatid un.. At ipa-manage sa brother ko and mom ko.. Meron kasi software na pwede mo imonitor ang sales kahit nasa abroad ka and remote access lang.. Alam mo kung ilang PC ang may gumagamit & gaano katagal ginamit... Kaso sa ngayon mukhang di na profitable ang internet cafe busines...

My friend abroad just bought a condominium here in the fort.  It's one her investments while she's still earning well abroad.  She's looking for a tenant and I guess extra income yun for her.

If you have a husband, sister or brother who can manage a business for you.  That's one investment you can get into.  Get a franchise that you believe in.  Talk to the owner or the product development manager to know more about the ROI, terms of investments, capital, etc needed to make the business successful :-*

1. long term investments. lbc bank offers 6% interest (pls verify) per annum on their long-term time deposit with a holding period of five years.
2. invest in small businesses. just make sure you trust your partners. as much as possible have a written contract/agreement. usually ang nangyayari samin is a relative or a friend needs funds for a business and maginvest kami ng konti (hindi naman namin popondohan lahat). nasa usapan nyo yan kung pautang with interest or prang shareholder ka dun sa business nya
3. you can invest in some property like lot/h&l/condo as long as your gut tells you its a good one. we got a studio in avida san lazaro since we wanted to start small. as of now [textspeak!] value nya nag-appreciate na nang 40% nung nabili namin sya.

^sa mga for sale na area sa lugar mo na makikita mo sa classifieds sa newspaper or internet and also dun sa property/development seller. like sa avida san lazaro if you bought a studio in their tower1/2 nung preselling sya around 1M ang TCP nang isang studio. they are now preselling tower5 and a studio there (same size) costs 1.6M na. usually if your area is near a busy mall,school,office magaappreciate talaga ang value nyan

suggestions lang mga sisters, if you plan on having a business in the phils while you are away and having your parents, siblings, relatives take care of it, make sure that you make a good team and see eye to eye in all aspects. i made that mistake. i thought making my parents as property manager of my house for rent will make it easier but it turns out they make things complicated and lot harder for me. so in the end since nagkakasamaan na nang loob we decided to find another property manager para iwas away

Magandang idea yung sinabi ng iba na mag-invest sa properties, as long as reputable company ang pag-iinvestan.

Katulad ng isang website about retiring in the Philippines, they recommend reputable developers like Ayala and Century Properties. At dahil talamak ang mga nagogoyo ng mga kunwaring representative ng mga developers nito, they made a way para directly nang makapag-inquire ang mga interested buyers sa mga developers na ito. Pwede rin naman na kung may interesado ang balikbayan or foreigner na bilhin na property by other developers, pwedeng mag-ask ng feedback kung OK ba yun developer na yun.

May mga guidelines din kung paano makasiguro na legit ang property, developer or broker:
http://www.myphilippineretirement.com/forum/real-estate/purchase-and-rental-tips/share-some-tips-before-buying-real-estate-in-the-philippines/page-22-5

Me and my husband ay naka base sa ibang bansa.

Thank God after 4 years ng pagkukuripot, meron na kami kahit papaano 3 door apartment - residential.

Medyo matagal ang ROI, pero lifetime investment sya. We don't physically need to be there also (salamat sa nanay ko)! :)

What we did sa construction, pa islab. para yung 3rd floor dun namin ipapa construct ang bahay namin mismo sayang kasi ang space at sobrang mahal na ng lupa sa lugar namin, so maximize na namin.

Since oFw pa kami, we dont intend to stay sa Pinas at this point kaya pinauna muna namin ang apartment as business. Hopefully by march start na namin yung 3rd floor ang aming home sweet home.

Hubby and me are so proud of ourselves kasi sa mga katrabaho namin na couple at matagal na sa abroad, naunahan pa namin magka bahay.

Pagkukuripot and Practicality have paid off and its all worth it!

Nabasa ko to at may naisip akong magandang investment para dito. May kapatid ako sa abroad at ang gusto nyang gawin eh ay ang mag invest sa iba ibang bagay for the future. For example, nag hahanda sya ng pabahay sa amin sa future. Madami pang options para kumita ka kahit nasa abroad ka. Hanap lang ng tamang pagkakakitaan.

Isa pang nakita ko, mukhang okay dito mag invest. Yung magkakaroon ka ng good home. Try nyong tignan to. http://www.facebook.com/AraVistaVillage Sa may cavite lang sya at mukhang maganda naman!

Paper assets - mutual funds and direct stocks

Real estate - I am still in the stage where I am paying for the down payment for condos that are in their pre-selling phase so no rental income from these investments yet.

Business - Me and my circle of friends are passionate financial advocates and one of my friends is into franchising of restaurants in Metro Manila. They have a structure where they look for investors (mostly OFWs) for new franchises, they pool the money and in return OFWs get a share in the profit of the resto. Passive investment sya. We are investor partners and we don't have any say in the operations, we just help market the business, mostly through social media lang naman.

In the country where I am residing, we have also invested in businesses, crowdfunding style din. So far these businesses give me passive income through dividends.

^hi sis, can you share the name of the crowdfunding style for franchising restos in Manila? is there any website that I can look and if its good then I might join.

sis, are you asking for the name of the corporation? They are registered with the SEC here in the Philippines and what they do is they manage the operations of the restaurants. It is quite complicated to explain here and since we are financial advocates, what we do is we educate the potential investors first. We look at their profile, make sure they have the right foundation in terms of the finances and they understand the business model so they know what they are getting into. Most of the new investors are referrals from existing investors din, but we are not into multi level marketing. We don't get commissions whatsoever if we refer.

I can't provide the details here due to the business's confidentiality clause. Where are you based? If you are based in the middle east then there are many groups who are into crowdfunding for businesses that I can refer you to, some are based there, too.

Title: Re: OFW: Any Investment / Business sa Pinas while Abroad??
Post by: vankiesher on July 08, 2017, 11:05:51 am
Sis, no offense, but I was merely sharing the investment vehicles that I personally use as an OFW, I'm not here to solicit investors. I am an investor in the business but I also help out in profiling those who want to invest since I am a financial planner myself.

In fact, the corporation is not very aggressive when looking for investors. They prefer either referrals from existing investors or individuals whom we get to meet face to face, who are able to attend the business presentation, who more or less are of good character based on initial impression  (we are not able to evaluate that in one sitting), and who are financially literate.  This is to protect the interest of the business din.

If you have relatives in Manila, the owners of the business sometimes conduct the business presentation there, I can inform you once they have a schedule. One partner in the corporation travels to Manila quarterly to check on the new franchises. The rest are based in Manila to check on the operation side.

hi sis vankiesher- naka attend ako one time ng orientation na similar sa sinasabi mo (crowdfunding). interested sana ako pero since overseas ang restaurant, at ang ROI is after 3 years, parang napaisip ako at di ko tinuloy. kasi hindi ko alam if after 3 years nandito pa ba ako. although pwede naman daw na ituloy ang investement kahit wala na kami sa country or ibenta ang shares.

although if sa Pinas yung mga ganung crowdfunding, mas magiging malakas loob ko kahit currently wala kami sa Pinas. kasi ang long term plan naman naming ay sa Pinas pa din mag stay pag retired na kami as OFW.

if you don't mind, can you PM to me yung alam mo na pwede ko icheck or mag inquire about crowdfunding sa Pinas.

Ok din ang stock trading actually. My husband does this. We're both here in abroad and while I want to set up a business in PH, as of the moment hindi pa talaga viable since there is no one to manage it.  In stocks, mabilis ang kita however, malaki din ang risk. Ang gandahan lang namamage mo siya. Downside is because of time difference, hubby needs to wake up early.

we bought 2 condo units from ayala din. we bought them ng preselling and planning to do airbnb para may passive income din.

plan namin magpatayo ng apartment sa probinsiya namin, sa lote ng parents ko na plan din nila ipamana sa amin. hopefully mag materialize. may sinalihan kaming seminar regarding real estate investment and na inspire talaga kami sa stories nila.

okay din kaya ang 711 na franchise? siya kasi ang pinakamura eh. dream ko talaga ang franchise ng jollibee sana.  ;D

For those planning to buy condo unit and have it rented out through airbanb, make sure that they allow airbnb. May mga condo that they don't allow this kind of leasing service, long term lang ang pwede.

unicorn_ChicMD, how much franchise ng 711?

sis we are based here in cali, USA. may seminar kami pinuntahan regarding starting a real estate business- renting or flipping houses. gusto ko ang idea ng renting out houses kasi long term ang passive income mo and stable monthly may makukuha ka. and based nga naman sa observation ko-when i was still in college and newlygrad na nagrirent, ang lakas ng business na ganyan lalo na if nakakuha ka ng prime location. :)

^around 200k if i'm not mistaken sis ha. pero hindi ko alam ang ins and outs. medyo interested lang ako kasi siya ang affordable.  :)

My fiance and I put up a DIY laundry shop in Ubelt. So far, okay na business siya. ROI niya took us 14 months :) I am based here UAE while fiance is working as auditor in Pinas and he basically manages the shop.

Why not try crowdfunding like FarmOn (https://pwedepadala.com/farmon-virtual-farming-investment/). You can choose on which crop or livestock to invest: watermelon, tomatoes, chickens, pigs, etc.

You can also invest in stocks, peer to peer lending like FundKo. Don't forget also to continuously contribute in SSS, Pag-IBIG (https://pwedepadala.com/ofw-become-a-member-of-pag-ibig-fund/) (for my dream house), and PhilHealth.

While working overseas, I'm spending my time on blogging for passive income. It is something I can do in my spare time to pay it forward na rin. I'm learning and sharing at the same time while building my online business which is easier to manage than having a business in the Philippines.
