THOUSANDS of Filipino consumers are already saving time and money three months after the launch of MoneyMax.ph, the country’s leading comparison portal for financial products and services like credit cards, broadband plans, insurance and home loans. Quentin Bouche, MoneyMax.ph vice president, said the comparison portal helps people save by making crucial financial information easily accessible to more people and with its aim to be a one-stop resource for financial products and services in the Philippines. “[The portal] also aims to empower millions of Filipino consumers to make informed choices, especially with regard to important financial decisions such as applying for a housing loan, choosing an insurance plan or selecting a credit card product,” Bouche explained. He said customers shopping for such products and services are usually swamped with details, often too complex to fully comprehend. “Decisions are often left to chance due to the lack of time, and often, patience, thus consumers end up making poor choices or paying for a product or service much more than they should,” Bouche said.
