First Metro: PH economy poised to switch from resilience to growth
First Metro Investment Corporation expects the Philippine economy to switch to the growth phase towards the end of the year.
First Metro president Jose Patricio Dumlao said, “Although early signs of recovery at the onset of 2021 were halted due to the surge of COVID-19 cases and subsequent lockdown of NCR Plus in March, our economy remained resilient. The country has maintained its credit ratings and we continue to have a strong and healthy banking system, ample foreign reserves and adequate fiscal stamina. And now, we are seeing our economy switching from resilience to growth.” Read More
2020 was a challenging year and a largely unprecedented time for business and the global economy. And while companies, investors, and employees are experiencing a great deal of uncertainty, it is more important than ever to build, unite, and work together through times of adversity. By moving as One Team, First Metro was able to build a stronger and more resilient organization.
A solid testament to its adaptability and resilience, having survived many crises in the past 57 years, was the record number of deals that First Metro produced in 2020, fulfilling its mandate to be a prime mover in the domestic capital markets. To seize bigger opportunities in the "New Normal," First Metro is building a more agile, more focused, more integrated, and a more sustainable business in the years ahead.
