TGFI STORY

After getting himself financially in trouble—spending 70% of his monthly salary for a luxury watch, finding himself bankrupt due to multiple credit card debts and more—Floi Wycoco, TGFI’s founder, capitalized on his unfortunate experience and found the inspiration to break the endless cycle of Filipinos mismanaging their wealth; preventing them from entering the wrong investments due to the lack of proper financial education programs in the country.

Floi Wycoco had 8 jobs before finding the career he always wanted. He was with several telecommunication companies and was also a manager at an insurance company prior to TGFI. Not only that, Floi was once one an Overseas Filipino Worker in Singapore where he worked for two years. During that time, Floi was living from paycheck to paycheck, working hard to earn a lot and spending all of it. Eventually, he found himself in deep amount of debt to the point of bankruptcy. Floi decided he needed a change in the way he lived his life.

In 2012, Floi shared his experiences and ideas with Magellan Fetalino and Dr. Khristian Santos. United by their advocacy, they started their own company and social media platform, The Global Filipino Investors, which initially had only around a thousand members.

For the past 3 years, the group has been advocating financial literacy through digital media and regular meet-ups among members in their respective country of residence. Communities have been formed in Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, Brunei, Greece, Australia, Manila, Cebu, to name a few. TGFI’s methods and advocacy gained the recognition of multiple business and financial organizations like COL Financial, different Philippine Embassies, AFFI, Money Summit, as well as media groups in the Philippines like ANC – On the Money and CNN Philippines.

Today, the group has over 100,000 members (and growing) and has formed communities in more than 10 countries. Barely 1% of the total population, their journey for a financially literate Philippines is just beginning.
