Investa App: A Hassle-Free Investing Platform

The Investa app is our very own investing platform that allows users to invest in mutual funds. Investing through Investa is as simple as just clicking a few buttons once your account is all set! Let’s look at what the investing platform has to offer, and how easy it is to invest in mutual funds through it.

Get to know our investing platform’s partners

Investa has partnered with some of the best performing mutual fund companies in the Philippines: PhilEquity, BPI, SunLife and ATRAM. Partnerships were made with these companies to promote financial inclusion and affordable investing to millions of Filipinos! With Investa, you can buy their funds with ease! Here is a quick overview of what each mutual fund company offer:

  • PhilEquity – The ideal choice for investors who wish to engage in the stock market but lack the time and knowledge to do so is Philequity Fund (PEFI), which has been acknowledged for its exceptional record since its founding in 1994.
  • BPI – Focuses on funds that emphasize on inexpensive and lower beta names, shorter durations, and diversification strategies consistent with capital preservation in order to generate appealing risk-adjusted returns.
  • SunLife – Is a leading international financial services organization providing protection and wealth products, financial planning and retirement solutions.
  • ATRAM – Suitable for investors with a moderately aggressive risk profile while also being managed by an award-winning fixed income team.

Of course, this is just a very generalized overview of their fund management methodology. If you wish to learn more about their specialized approaches to the different funds they offer, you would have to go over the specific fund’s prospectus, which will be talked about later on.

Agreements and Documents

You will be asked to sign some forms and agreements after you provide your information. Documents will also be needed in order to verify your identity. When the selfie with your ID is asked for, make sure that your face is visible along with your picture in the document to make sure there aren’t any problems when your identity is being verified.

Risk Profile

Financial market investing is always risky to some extent. The degree of risk a person is ready to tolerate while investing is known as their risk profile or risk appetite. Before you can invest in mutual funds, you will need to fill out a risk profile survey which will help determine a proper investment asset allocation for your portfolio.

Risk profile assessment for the investing platform

There are 3 types of risk profile scores: Conservative, Moderate & Aggressive

  • Conservative – prioritizes asset preservation above capital growth.
  • Moderate – equal importance to lowering risks and maximizing revenue
  • Aggressive – may aim for financial gain despite the potential risks of the investments.
