Being financially independent in your 30s gives you the means to further invest in your future. But it also comes with added roles and responsibilities at work—and at home—which you need to consider as well. That said, investing should be a calculated risk and it should be made simple and convenient given your daily commitments.   

One way to do it is through global investing. It is basically an efficient way to invest your money in local and foreign companies, harnessing the potential growth of your savings over time. Good news is you can start your global investing journey with AXA’s Peso-Denominated Dollar Funds. It provides an easy option to make your money work hard for you. Here’s what you need to know: 

What is global investing and why should I consider it in my 30s? 

Global investing enables you to invest in markets and assets outside of your country so you’ll have alternative sources of growth and stability. It takes you a step closer to growing your savings and funding your future milestones—whether it’s buying your dream car, sending your kids to top universities, or preparing for retirement. It’s a smart financial move in your 30s, especially if you’re already settled with your job and you’re earning more. 

Is it easy to manage? 

What we like about the AXA Peso-Denominated Dollar Funds is it allows you to access  international funds using a peso policy. This means you don’t need to create a separate dollar account to grow your investments. You can move from local to global markets and gain control on where you want to invest next. 

How do I make it less risky, especially during these uncertain times? 

Having a diversified portfolio can help boost your returns over time. By distributing your investments in local and foreign markets, you can take calculated risks to help protect your funds amid these uncertain times. An economic crash in another country, for instance, won’t necessarily affect your other investments. Tip: To further increase your chances of growing your funds, best to assess your risk profile with the help of an AXA financial advisor.

Where do I start my global investing journey?

You can start with AXA Peso-Denominated Dollar Funds. Under these are the Global Dynamic Allocation Fund (GDAF) Peso and the Global Advantage Fund (GAF) Peso. Both are expertly managed to optimize the growth potential of your investments.
