GCASH 新サービス開始

海外からフィリピンへの送金サービスを提供するGCashは、投資や保険、買い物なども可能になる新サービスを開始しました。

GCashの最高経営責任者であるマーサ・サゾン氏は、金融サービスへ利用のハードルを低くすることで、社会的地位にかかわらず全ての人に平等な投資機会と選択肢を提供したいと語っています。

GCashの最新機能には、50ペソからプロが運用する国内外のファンドに投資できる「GInvest」、300ペソから医療費や事故に備えることができる「GInsure」、手数料、初期預金が不要な口座「GSave」など、様々なものがあります。またこのアプリは、海外のフィリピン人労働者が母国の家族に送金できる「GPadala」サービスの提供も予定しています。

これが普及すれば、低迷している海外からの送金も増えることが期待されます。また国民すべての人に手軽な投資の機会が与えられることは国内経済の活性化にも繋がるでしょう。今後の動向に注目です。
