It was only recently that I opened an account with COL Financial and started investing in the stock market. I originally deposited an amount of 10,000 PHP as my initial investment although, for as low as 5,000 PHP, you can start investing. I also did write a post about my experience of BPI Express online banking as an OFW and how convenient and easy the transactions are. Funding my COL Financial account is another advantage of using my BPI account. Though I am currently out of the country I can still add funds and manage my accounts online.
Here are the Steps to Fund your COL Financial Account
Step 1: Log on to www.bpiexpressonline.com
