How much do you need to start Investing in Stocks?

One of the most frequently asked question is this, How much do I need to start Investing in the Stock Market?
A. P5,000,000
B. P500,000
C. P50,000
D. P5,000

The answer is letter D or just P5,000. With COL Financial, you can start investing in the stock market with a minimum initial deposit of Five Thousand Pesos only.

Some think that you need millions to invest in the Stock Market, that was my perception too a few years ago, but with COL Financial (formerly Citiseconline), opening a Stock Investment Account has been more attainable for many people. Of course if you invest P5,000 only, the return will be minimal but you can start with P5,000 then just continue adding P5,000 monthly or any amount monthly or quarterly so that your investment will increase over time.

I started with an initial deposit of P10,000 only because, I really did not know what to expect and if I will earn in this. I just want to experiment first and if I lose money at the start, it will be a learning experience for me specially if I decide to invest more money.
