2012 Outlook, part 6By Randell Tiongson on January 12th, 2012
I’m really encouraged by the potential of the younger breed of financial practitioners. Through time, I came to realize that age has nothing to do with wisdom and that we can learn much from the young. I am proud to feature the 2012 Outlook of a very young and bright financial planner who is full of zeal, insight, knowledge — but I am most impressed by his passion to educate Filipinos financially and promote stewardship, Mr. Marvin Germo.
2012 Outlook of Marvin Germo
The Philippine market has been moving sideways for the past year and based on history the longer a certain market is sideways the stronger the upward or downward push that would follow. Amidst the doom and gloom that people are projecting in the financial markets of 2012, my outlook is quite optimistic brought about by:
-The move of the world economies to the emerging markets like the Philippines, as money have been flowing to these markets due to cheaper costs, bigger growth potential and the murkiness of the European and American markets, have made a stronger case to build businesses in emerging economies.
-More government spending, cleaner transactions, higher approval ratings would certainly boost business confidence in the country which would translate into more jobs and bigger business ventures.
-Robust fundamentals in Philippine based companies which are in expanding industries such mining, energy, and construction will see continued growth this year and thus bring in more jobs and business.
To top all this things, I remain optimistic due to the fact that I know God’s Blessing is in the Philippine and because of that I know that the great days of this nation are still right ahead of us!
