RECOGNIZING that JFinex is the future of the Financial Executives Institute of the Philippines (FINEX), the JFinex Committee strengthens its advocacies and programs with the students from business and finance universities and colleges.
In 2017, JFinex Committee organized four JFinex Future Business and Finance Leaders Forums, where thousands of participants benefited from its resources speakers including Antonio Carpio. This initiative will be continued in 2018. In fact, the fifth leg of the said forum themed, “Integrity, Governance, Compliance and Ethics” will be staged on January 27, 2018 at Far Eastern University– Manila. The speakers include Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno, Leovigildo Abot, Vice-President and Chief Audit Executive of Ayala Land Inc.

The JFinex Committee gathers expert, relevant and notable speakers to provide the students with first-hand information on meticulously selected topics. The main thrust of the fora is to inspire the students to actively enrich themselves in the pursuit for excellence in Business and Finance. JFinex Committee, with its generous sponsors, provided the fora to the students for free to stimulate the learning appetite.
The Inter-Collegiate Finance Competition now on its 20th year will be more exciting and prestigious as the JFinex Committee aims to pursue the automation process for the elimination round. The automation of the competition was completed for the Final Round of the 19th ICFC last November 28, 2017.
