Golden Haven Memorial Lots Are Now the Most Lucrative, Hassle-Free Investments for OFWs

Golden Haven memorial lots currently range from Php 53,800 
for a single lawn lot to Php 10M for mausoleums.

In the wake of a turbulent year that upended jobs and threw people’s income opportunities in disarray, more Filipinos are now taking a hard look at investment options that could provide a safety net for the uncertain times. And one sector that is especially seen as potential investors is that of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs). 

Hardworking OFWs all over the world are aptly regarded as “mga bagong bayani” for helping keep the Philippine economy afloat through the remittances they send home. Their immense contribution to our national coffers can’t be understated. The Philippine Statistics Association discloses that in 2020 alone, these Filipinos sent an average of $2.8 billion despite the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, recent surveys reveal that OFWs are utilizing their remittances for investments as preparation for their retirement.

YOP: Vista Shaw - Home amid the Hubbub

It’s not always that history and modernity intersect in one real estate project but for Vista Shaw (formerly referred to as 515 Shaw as a nod to its address), they do. This 38-floor, two-tower project, located in the corner of Laurel Street and Shaw Boulevard in Mandaluyong City, features contemporary design and select modern-day amenities, with former President Jose P. Laurel’s historical mansion being a separate, but integral, part of the development.

“Originally, we thought of adapting the Laurel Mansion into a grand lobby but we decided to leave it untouched in order to preserve its integrity as a historical place and allow our residents to see it in its former glory,” says Elizabeth Kalaw, Division Head of Vista Residences. “Each of the two towers will now have its own well-appointed lobby that will usher the residents and their guests to an atmosphere of subtlety and refinement.”

EastWest Bank new logo heralds corporate rebranding

EastWest Bank recently launched its new corporate signature signaling new levels in its corporate strategy and the transformation of its value proposition to one that will ring closer to its customers’ needs, encapsulated in the brand promise, “We make good things happen.”

The new brandmark is one of the results of months of in-depth brand assessment and audit by FutureBrand, the Singapore-based international branding expert commissioned by EastWest Bank. Its signature color is a light, fresh green symbolizing renewal and fresh growth, with purple and magenta rounding off the arrows. The colors are considered unique and a visual standout in a field of reds, blues and yellows typically favored by other financial institutions.

EastWest Bank president and CEO Antonio C. Moncupa, Jr. said “the new logo was created from two arrows representing the directions of the bank’s name, coming together to symbolize the relationship between bank and customer, in the heart of which good things happen. It also communicates our intent to become a world-class service provider, and our focus on customer benefits and aspirations consistent with our new brand tagline, ‘Your Dream. Our Focus.’”

EastWest Bank chairman of the board Jonathan T. Gotianun said “the rebranding exercise is part of our holistic effort to bring EastWest Bank to a higher level of performance, competitiveness and strength. It is not just about changing our logo or adopting new corporate colors. Our brand represents the value the bank delivers to our customers and our brand promise to them. We hope this rebranding effort will help focus our energies and align all our efforts consistently and more effectively towards delivering our brand promise to our customers.”
