Suck at money? Congrats. You’re part of the 99 percent of people in their 20s floundering when it comes to finance. Adulting is hard, and money is harder—especially when it’s your own and not your parents. My Two Cents is here to break down everything you need to know about finance, business, and entrepreneurship. We’ll tackle all the basics, from how to get a business permit to how to invest in stocks, to educate the fledgling adults on how to not go broke.

Welcome to the idiot’s guide to money. Lesson No. 33: scouting for online stock brokers in the Philippines.

We’re officially in a recession, which means people are hustling to earn, save, and grow money. While the economy might be down, some might argue that now might be the best time to invest if you want to see long-term growth. Since going outside is not an option under quarantine, we’re listing down the 10 online brokers accredited by the Philippine Stock Exchange with the lowest initial investment amount.

Finding the right broker depends on what you need. Do you want big returns for your big investment? Try COL Financial. Are you looking for the broker with the lowest minimum investment? Consider ABCSI. Or do you want convenient services like an app so you can trade on-the-go? Check out First Metro.

You can also consider the ease of transfering money in and out of your trading account. A number of banks have their own brokerage arms, like BDO (BDO Nomura), BPI (BPI Trade), Metrobank (First Metro), Maybank (Make Trade), RCBC (RCBC Securities), and UCPB (UCPB Securities), all of which has easier money transfer services since the trading account is often attached to a savings account in the bank.

There are a lot of things to consider, so we’ve filtered the list of 32 Philippine online brokers down to 10--the ones with a minimum investment of P5,000 and lower for the rookies in the trading scene, ranked with the lowest amount first.
