President's Message

George S. Chua

My Friends,

It is truly an honor for me to have been elected as the President of FINEX for 2016. Having been a member since 1992 and as a Life Member, I have many fond memories of our organization and of course the many wonderful friends that I have gotten to know and cherish throughout this time. FINEX is like a family to me where we not only nurture our professional development but also our personal growth.

For 2016, our theme is “Supporting Financial Inclusion for all Filipinos”, to highlight the continuing difficulties that many Filipinos face in terms of economic hardship brought about by unemployment, underemployment and the lack of proper understanding of fundamental financial principles such budgeting, savings and investments. Our objective is of course to be part of the solution by doing our job as finance professionals in ensuring the efficient financial management of our respective organizations so that we can generate more job opportunities for Filipinos.
