The COVID-19 pandemic shocked the world and many of us had to adapt to a new normal. The Filipinos continue to face new challenges with the rise of the Omicron variant and many of us find different ways on how to cope with our current situation.

The past two years introduced numerous shifts in our lifestyle. This meant new ways of living, new working environments, and more so, new ways of learning. We have seen many changes when it comes to education, primarily the shift to online and hybrid environments implemented by traditional institutions to companies involved in learning like SmarTrade (www.smartradeph.com), which offers 100% free financial education.

SmarTrade’s advocacy of providing financial literacy to the Filipinos shifted from face-to-face sessions and events to online learning sessions, online one-on-one coaching, and online consultation. While it has its own challenges, this new setup made it easier for the company to multiply its reach and tap clients who are interested in online trading even from the provincial areas.

During the challenging years of the pandemic, Filipinos looked at different ways how they can manage their existing financial resources and even grow them. Many looked at online trading as an additional investment opportunity and this is where SmarTrade’s services have been integral.

“We have been providing financial education to the Filipinos for four years and this is really the heart of our mission. Even the pandemic cannot stop us from reaching Filipinos who want to learn about financial wellness,” says SmarTrade President & CEO Joyce Ann Mayo.

SmarTrade’s 100% free online learning sessions helped many Filipinos understand financial wellness and at the same time, gave them resources on how they can grow their money through different investments such as trading. The free online learning sessions catered to different levels: from those who are only dipping their toes in investments to intermediate and advanced traders who want to sharpen their skills and be abreast with the global and local developments in the trading industry.
