Carlo Mercado on Very Inspiring Pinoys (VIP) Series.


1. How did you start investing?

I was 19 when I already witnessed the benefits of investing in insurances. Because of that, I had myself insured, to protect my future family.
That was my very first investment.

I learned about the stock market a year later. That time, only a few people know about online investing. I wanted to invest in stocks, but since I’m just a kid, no broker would take me seriously as an investor. I ventured in stocks in 2008 when I first heard about Citiseconline. Since then, I never looked back.

2. Who/what inspires you to invest?

My mom inspires me. Since she has 3 boys and relatives to take care of, big risk was not an option, that’s why she did not venture in a business. Investment was her only way “out”.
Because of her investments, she was able to give us and her relatives a good life. Everything that we have today are fruits of love and investments.

3. What are your greatest and biggest learnings so far?

The greatest treasure you will ever have in this world is your family. Your family will love you with Every Filipino deserves to be financially free.

4. What would you suggest to an ordinary Filipino who has never started saving up or investing?

Be accountable on what and who you are today. The world will not change for you, but you can change for yourself.

5. How do you see yourself in this journey 10 to 20 years from now?

I see myself retired from my job in 10 years (or less, hopefully), and spend the rest of my years taking care of my wife and kids.
