Metrobank rolls out new financial literacy platform

To mark its 60th anniversary in banking, Metropolitan Bank and Trust Co. (Metrobank) renewed its focus on financial literacy by introducing Moneybility, an e-book that will help Filipinos become financially resilient.

The new financial education platform is convenient for people who want to start building smart financial habits in budgeting, debt management, insurance, investing and more. Moneybility is currently available for registration at

“We strive to go beyond simply providing the usual banking services and aim to be our clients’ credible and reliable partner for expert financial advice. With education as the driving force, we hope to meet their needs while empowering them to maintain a financially resilient lifestyle,” said Metrobank Chief Marketing Officer Digs Dimagiba.

According to a 2016 Standard and Poor’s Global FinLit Survey, a country’s financial literacy rate is directly related to its economic development. In the case of the Philippines, only 25% of Filipinos are financially literate, lagging behind other ASEAN countries, according to the World Bank’s 2014 Financial Capability Survey.

It also offers Metrobank My Choice investment funds for as little as P1,000 and allows the opening of a Metrobank savings account. Users can go to the website, or download the app from play store and app store for iOS and Android users.
