List of Accredited Online Trading Brokers in the Philippines 2020

Updated list of Accredited Online Trading Brokers in the Philippines this 2020. If you want to buy, sell and trade stocks online, you must have an online account with any of the brokerage firms below. As a reference for the stock market and investment topics here, I am sharing the official list of online brokers in the Philippines accredited by the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE).

Currently this 2020, there are only 30 online brokers although there are more than a hundred of brokers (lots of local and few foreign). Choosing your online broker is important for trading and investing in the stock market. Because it is like your live stock market arena so it is also so important to get comfortable and feel at home with it.

The most popular online brokers as of now are COL Financial (used to be Citisec Online), BPI Securities (BPITrade) and First Metro Securities. BDO Nomura recently joined as well. Of course those are my nicknames for them, you’ll know their official names as you go forth below.

New users can open an account by depositing the required minimum fund for the online stock trading account. And then submitting the required documents which are available to download from the websites anytime. No worries it’s just like opening a bank account really.

  1. Dear,

    Just to inquire from once we bought shares of stocks in PSE, Do we receive state regular statement of account from the companies we invested like Ayala and SM? Another question do we receive dividends every year?

    Thank you very much

    Reply
    • Hi, yes you will receive Statement of Account regularly. They are usually provided via email or via your online trading account. Dividends are issued depending on the stocks you have. Cheers!

  3. Hi Fehl,

    I just newly found out about stock exchange and I’m totally interested in it. I’m still a student in college. For a starter, How should I start and where? Is there any seminars that I can attend to? Also, is there any local stock broker in Cebu that I can apply for? I tried to search it in Google and couldn’t find answers. I’d love to learn and earn money through investment. By the way your page is really cool and interesting.

  4. Good day Fehl.

    Have you ever tried investing in countries outside the Philippines? I’m already investing here in the PSE but I also want to try other stock exchanges outside the country, especially those that allow short-selling to maximize gains even during a downturn. Do you have any insights about where to start, such as, information about countries that have lesser taxes, reasonable regulations, relevant stock exchanges, and their corresponding brokers? Any suggestion is very much appreciated.

    By the way, you have a great website. Very organized, professional in presentation, and simple yet full of wonderful content.

    Cheers!

    • Hi. I have been invited by some brokers abroad but did not try it yet. Perhaps in the future but it’s not my priority right now. Thank you Jay-R

      Reply
      • Hello Fehl, there are over 40k financial instruments you could choose from world wide. do you have any country of preference? Around the region, here are the list of countries you could explore than offer both buying long and selling short…

        Singapore equities, Japan, Malaysia, Thailand, Australia.

        The approach ideally to get started is to find out the GDP of each country you wish to explore, it’s a way to generate ideas for you, and going down to the most fundamental analysis at both macro and micro economics, then the technical analysis of the pricing volatility and so forth.

        Happy hunting… cheers!

  10. hello mam Fehl, ask ko lang po if it is possible po and if it is ok to invest a large amount of money like 100k right away upon registration po sa preferred na broker ko like COL tpos di ko na po xa dadagdagan kikita po ba yang 100k ko after a year or so?lets say 5-10 years po? meron po bang program ang COL about dyan sa 1 time big investment. Anu po sa tingin nyo? or mas maganda e 5k muna? tpos 5k/mon na for 5-10years? san po ako mas kikita..

    • It depends on you kung saan mo ilalagay ang investments mo. Financial brokers are there just to guide you and process your investments. Depende rin sa galaw ng merkado at inflation rate kung mas magandang isang bagsakan o pakonti-konti ang lagay ng pera. I supposed you already have your emergency fund kaya gusto mo na ilagay sa stocks yang sobrang pera mo.

  11. Hi! Nabasa ko ung mga comments posted here and it seems na meron kang malawak na kaalaman regarding stocks trading. I have something to ask regarding my father’s stocks din po sa isang company pero may mga subsidiary ito. Nahalungkat ko sa baul nya na meron syang mga certificate of stocks since 1970’s up to 80’s, Pero he died last 2001 hindi na namin na tanong sa knya kung yun’ ay mapakinabangan pa. Paano ko malaman if those are still active dahil inabot na ng decada at mapakinabangan pa ba naming mga anak nya?

    Hope you can help me to find an answer with regards to this.

    Thank you. God Bless and more power!

    • Hi, as far as I know, puwede mong ilapit sa kahit sinong broker yan para sila bahala mag assess and take the necessary “liquidations” (dunno the exact term for this) ng mga certificates na yan… punta na lang po kayo ng PSE para magpatulong dun sa certificates…

      Goodluck nga pala sa inyo, sana nga mapakinabangan pa, malaki-laki rin siguro yan… 70’s pa… πŸ˜€

    question regarding the fees. is it like buying credits for me to trade online or is it just like a broker fee not the actual investment or it is already the investment it self?

    • The fees are broker’s commission fee, VAT, PSE transaction fee, SEC Clearing fee and Sales tax (if selling). You have to pay those for every trading transaction. No worries, they are very small fees

    • Hi, Arnel. Lahat ng companies na may stocks ako ay dividend na binibigay. You should check first kung ngbbigay sila ng dividend or not. Pwede mo igoogle ang name ng company, then add mo lang sa search mo “dividend” or pwede din “stocks dividend”. May mga websites din na may list ng mga companies and schedule Kung kelan sila mgbbigay ng dividend. May mga announcements pa yan minsan Kung how much ibibigay nila or how many times a year. Search mo Lang. Goodluck!

    • I personally don’t know how coz I use stockbroker. It will be much easier with everything if you find a licensed broker

      Reply
      • Let me take the liberty of answering this question, Ms. Fehl:

        Hello Marilyn! Are your shares in a form of a stock certificate? Or is a broker holding your shares for you?

        Because if it is in stock certificate form, meaning you actually have the paper certificate indicating your ownership, then depositing it in one of the listed brokers in this article would allow you to “trade” it. Trading it can mean either selling that stock in the open market, or buying more of those shares and other companies’ , too if you so choose. Each broker has its own procedures on depositing these certificates so check on their website for particulars.

        Otherwise, if you do not have the paper certificates, then you most likely have your shares held by a holding firm designated by Meralco. If this was the case, contact the investor relations department of Meralco to find out where your shares are being held – and your options on selling the shares.

  24. Hi Ms. Fehl.

    Thanks for the informative articles. You inspire me!

    • Yes, ask your parent to open In-Trust-For (ITF) account for you. Your parent then can then convert that account in your name once you became a legal adult

      Reply
      • hi Miss Fehl,

        Jollibee is coming to Toronto very soon. I live in this area and very much interested buying some stocks. How will I do it?

        Reply
          • You first have to determine where you want to buy your shares. If you want to buy the Jollibee stock that is trading in the Philippines, then the brokerage account you have to open would be a Philippine broker. You would have to note that Jollibee is also trading the US markets (there are two, both trading separately.) Also, since all these stocks are trading separately, even if they represent ownership of just one company, the prices can change at different rates and at different directions (up or down.)

            Since you mentioned you are in Toronto, you are most likely to open an account with a Canadian broker – but you have to look up brokers that can trade the stock at the market you choose. Or, you can open an account at a broker in which country the Jollibee stock you want to purchase, and ask if they can open an account for a Canadian resident.

  25. with bpi, you only need to play your money on your account right ?

    so that means, kahit 1k lang i-deposit ko pede ko imapbili ng stocks ?
    well i mean if that’s how flexible bpi can be regarding their online brokerage. πŸ™‚

    correct me if i’m wrong. willing to learn naman po ako. gusto ko lang mkahanap ng other ways of earning more money that being stuck on the chair catering customer service calls which napipilitan lang ako kasi un lang ang skill na meron ako.

    • I think BPITrade is a different account with your BPI savings account. You can buy stocks with 1000 IF the price of the stock you’re buying can accommodate that amount and you also have to consider the little fees associated with trading.

    • BDO and BPI have great and excellent UITFs so you can invest on any of them. BPI also offers Mutual Funds. Ang kaibhan nito sa stock trading is you don’t need to manage your funds coz there are already fund managers / experts who do that thing for you. Please read our posts about stocks, Mutual Funds and UITF so you know more. πŸ™‚

The first thing you need before you invest is get to know about investments so you’ll know which investment you would like to start with (stocks, mutual funds, UITF, ETF, real estate, etc.) next is you open an account, and then monitor your investment until your goal or target. Our guides here will help you. You can start by reading our posts about stocks, mutual funds, uitfs and then you will be ready.

    • Hi Juby. Thank you and I’m glad you find my articles here useful and informative. The first thing to do before investing is getting to know what you’re getting into πŸ™‚ Learn the basics and you can easily learn it free here by reading our posts in the MONEY category. For starters, I would recommend you start with Trust Funds because those funds are already managed by experts. If you invest in Trust Funds Like UITF, you dont need to monitor it like trading in the stock market. UITFs are kinda similar with Mutual Funds. After you have tried MF and UITF, try real time stock trading. Then Real Estate investing. And some more other investment wheels. Keep reading here to learn more πŸ™‚ God bless you!

  42. Hi Fehl,

    your articles are really interesting and catchy. If i may just ask, i am a permanent resident of Canada but still a filipino citizen. Can i still invest in PSE? If yes, what are the things I need to do in buying stocks?

    Reply
    • Thank you Nina πŸ™‚ Yes Non-Resident Foreigners are welcome to trade in the PSE. If you chose your online broker already, usually you need to submit application form, some copies of documents like authentication of valid passport, proof f income and latest billing statements to the address of the online broker company you have chosen or you may ask them for more convenient ways. The requirements are listed on the online broker’s official website should you need to know them all. Once they approved and contacted you, you can then fund your account and start trading. Contact them thru email if you wanna ask how to fund your account while in Canada. Good luck!

    • Hi Alvin. Thank you for the nice words here. You need a broker. An online broker is more convenient. Choose your online broker first then register for an account. Then fund the account. Ask your family in the Philippines to fund your account for you.

        • Monitoring is up to the investor, it’s not an obligation but a privilege. However, if you are a serious investor, yes, you must have time to monitor your funds performance every now and then. It’s not an obligation to check it everyday or night, rather, it’s must be checked regularly because that’s your money and you have to take care of them πŸ™‚

  45. Hi Fehl,

    Great article. I got here because I was looking for some information about xforex. I’ve been seeing a lot of their advertising lately that’s why I got interested. Any thoughts? Btw, I am a noob when it comes to trading and I am looking to open my first account.

    Thanks

    • madali lang mag invest sa stock market.As easy as 1,2 and 3!
      You need an accredited stock broker first like ACCORD,COL FINANCIAL,RCBC SECURITIES. These brokers are very competitive. I am now a shareholder/stockholder in Philippine Stock Market.If you have any further questions just email me.

    • Col Financial is already online now. All interested applicants for stock trading can apply and open account there. If it’s still in beta, I think they will tell you right away. πŸ™‚ Happy trading!

  46. Good day fehl!
    I want to be a stock broker. I email PSE and one them replied to me that “Under the Securities Regulation Code of the Philippines (SRC Rules), interested parties who wishes to be licensed agent should rendered at least Three (3) years working experience in a brokering firm. ” Thus I’m looking for a brokerage firm who hires or accepts under graduate student, w/o experience and at legal age. I’m very interested to be a stock broker. Thank you in advance for your reply.

    • Aside from that, I know you are required to undergo and complete proper training. I admire you for working in a firm in advance to that career you want to pursue. If you’re looking for a brokerage firm, try all the ones listed above aside from applying in the PSE. Good luck and God bless!

  48. good post Fehl. by the way, regarding bdo, being number one in the country does not mean that it also has number one facilities to offer. by far, they have the worst Information Technology services all across their businesses, and they are not paying attention to the IT people working for their company. The Sy family should be aware of this that they must do something about those traditional people working in their IT department.

    • Yes, it takes a lot of factors to be number one. Regarding their IT, that’s interesting to hear. I hope they resolve whatever that is soon

    • @fehl your articles are really informative thanks a lot. @ pure copper IMO bdo does not only have the worst IT services but also worst customer relations service . i ‘ve had bad experience with bdo at SM pampanga . the personnel are mostly unfriendly and not very accommodating especially kung maliit lang initial deposit tulad ko πŸ™ plus when i returned a week after to claim my ATM they were offline then medyo natagalan bago ako nakabalik only to be told that i have to fill in another form and pay 150 pesos! e ang pila ay milya-milya habang yung ibang staff busy sa kaka-salamin at naguunahan mag lunch break

      • Sad to hear about your experience. Maybe it was a bad day? I always have great experience with them. But I agree with the long line heheh. One thing I always do though is smile and throw out some compliments when I approach a banker like “hey your curls are great! Are they natural?” LOL Trust me they would really be accommodating. Have a fantastic day and God bless you Ra! πŸ™‚
