RCBC leads the way to open banking in the country

Imagine being able to secure loans with some of the lowest interest rates in the banking industry. Or conveniently transferring funds from one bank account to another, or perhaps, experiencing the best possible customer banking service around.

To get all these and other “perks”, most financial institutions would require one to become their preferred client. But in today’s digital technology and in the global banking industry, getting access to all these benefits is simply a matter of banking customers securely sharing their data with other financial institutions. This is the beauty of open banking.

Open banking enables financial services customers such as companies, entrepreneurs and ordinary depositors and borrowers, to have access to various products and services from competing banks and other financial institutions by allowing the latter to digitally and securely access their financial information. Customers can compare product offerings and avail of the best ones that suit their needs and fit their capabilities, thereby helping them earn more from bigger savings interest rates, avail of loans more easily, and pay more conveniently, towards managing and improving their finances.

Let’s talk about why Samsung’s Heatpump Dryer is a great investment for your home

One of the most challenging times for Filipinos would be the rainy season. Flooding, heavy traffic, unpredictable loss of electricity connection, and of course, a hard time to sun and air-dry clothes. What people may not realize is the convenience a dryer can provide for the entire household.

It saves time and effort

This appliance makes laundry a simple task to guarantee more time for the family. Dryers have the ability to dry clothes at any time of the day, under any weather conditions.

For people living in the city, there’s no need for wide spaces to hang wet clothes.  Properly dried clothes can go straight for ironing (it actually makes it easier to iron).

With every purchase of LG’s 2019 OLED or NanoCell TV models, you’ll receive an accompanying gift of 6 months of Netflix. You can experience your favorite shows the way they were meant to be seen – in a stunning array of colors and high dynamic range. 

To showcase the capabilities of the OLED and NanoCell TVs, as well as to give customers a fully interactive, hands-on experience, LG will hold a roadshow in key locations around the Metro. The venues for LG’s roadshow are strategically located in order to reach key markets for the coveted TV sets. Consumers are invited to fiddle around with LG’s newest line of award-winning OLED TVs and see for themselves the exquisite design and the stunning details the flagship units have to offer. The TVs on display during the roadshow are all powered by LG’s new α9 Gen2 & α7 Gen2 processors which are equipped with Deep Learning technology. This new innovation allows the TV to understand how to optimize and enhance the picture and sound best for any content, giving you the most optimal viewing experience possible.
