There are so many things we can learn about finance! Things like Financial planning, short-term fund, premium bond fund, assets, investment funds, equity funds, balanced fund, asset management and trust bonds, international fund, unit investment trust funds, money market, investment management, living trust, dividend equity fund, and global Philippine fund is a very long list. Randell Tiongson’s iCON 2014 aims to bring together a huge pool of financial experts who can share their financial knowledge to us.
In Tiongson’s own words, “With a bigger and stronger thrust this year, we are very much excited to bring back iCON to our fellow kababayans. The turnout from last year was overwhelming seeing that there is much interest and support given not only by the attendees who are in thirst for learning on what vehicle they could put their money in but also for the mentors that are willing to help the bridge the gap through educating these people. Our goal is to create a paradigm shift and a mindset that whoever you are or whatever class you belong to, you are capable of investing. Living up to this year’s theme, we say, ‘It’s time we make investing for everyone!”
I just finished reading Randell Tiongson’s book recently. I truly believe that he and his friends will be able to make us understand all of these things in a simple, easy to understand way.
The speakers for iCON 2014 are quite popular in the Philippines financial industry. If ever, this year will be the first iCON that I’ll be attending. I can’t wait to hear every single speaker’s experience and guidance on how we can change our mindset from being a spender to being a saver to being an investor.

Randell Tiongson’s iCON is a whole day event. Boy, how I wish that all tickets include lunch and drinks. I’m a bit lazy to get up and walk around a bunch of people to find food at the mall. If you get yourself a VIP ticket which costs Php 2,800 then lunch will be served. I, however, got the gold ticket so I have to find myself food. Anyway, that’s fine. The knowledge that I’ll be gaining from the event is also food especially for my brain and it can be literally food if I ended up being financially stable, hehehe!
Look how meaty the program is! I can’t wait to join this. I’m positive I’ll get out of the event with full of information and pumped out to fulfil my financial goals!
