For the second consecutive year, First Metro Securities Brokerage Corporation (FirstMetroSec), the stockbrokerage arm of the Metrobank Group, was awarded Best Broker in the Philippines by Hong Kong-based financial publishing firm FinanceAsia at its Country Awards for Achievement 2018. During the awards covered period, the company’s value traded reached a total of P160 billion and continued to gain market share and reputation as one of the top local online stockbrokers in the Philippines. Last year, FirstMetroSec announced several new enhancements to its trading platform that made investing online easier and more accessible than ever. These enhancements include paperless account opening, dollar stock and mutual fund investing, and credit card funding. This year, FirstMetroSec promises to bring trading online to a whole new level by introducing a more powerful platform with advanced new features that aren’t available anywhere else and with an entirely redesigned user experience.
