GCash says it now has nearly half a million GStocks PH users

In 2023, GCash tapped AB Capital Securities, Inc. (ABCSI), to introduce GStocks PH to its users, allowing them to diversify their portfolios and choose companies listed on the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE).

“Through our partnership with GCash, it’s now very easy for an individual to open an account for local stock investments and trade in stocks, with just a tap of their finger,” said AB Capital & Investment Corporation Chairman and CEO Antonio Jose Periquet.

“We have a compounded annual growth rate of about 11 percent in stock market investors. I’m hopeful that with the easy access and the education initiatives that we are doing for the GCash subscribers, hopefully, at least in the next five years, if they could double that 1.9 million, we’ll be happy,” said Philippine Stock Exchange president and CEO Ramon Monzon.

With GStocks PH, GCash users can unlock the world of investing in local stocks – register easily, top up quickly and free of charge, as well as invest in over 280 local companies listed on the PSE – all within the GCash app.
