Treasury launches first-ever mobile app

CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga — Bureau of the Treasury (BTr) launched its first ever mobile app. 

It serves as a digital information platform in which users understand the bureau’s operation, various security offerings, and accessible ordering platforms and investment channels. 

“With the growing demand for digital channels…with the treasury’s goal of making investment easier and more convenient, now is truly the right time for us to launch our own mobile application. If e-commerce has Shopee and transportation has Grab, government securities now have the BTr app,” National Treasurer Rosalia De Leon said. 

The mobile application has a return calculator feature that allows users to estimate their prospective earnings based on the quantity of their investment and the type of investment government security they intend to join. 

Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III said the mobile application lets the investors know and learn the activities of the national government in debt management and fundraising for the economic investment of the country.

“This also keeps users updated on the latest offerings of government securities. With these innovations, Filipinos, especially our Overseas Filipino Workers can now make investments in government securities without having to payout huge commissions to brokers and traders,” he said. 

This app is a way to take advantage of different platforms that is convenient among Filipinos in the country and those working overseas. 

“With the effort of the government to defeat the pandemic, launching applications to help the people have an access with different banks will ensure the safety of the Filipinos from the pandemic and their safety in investing their money,” De Leon said.
