Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — The pandemic has changed the way people live and taught many invaluable lessons, including the importance of preparing for what's ahead.

And with the world entering a new year amid a health crisis, seizing opportunities to secure one's future and even of their loved ones has never been so important.

"Are they looking to invest for their retirement? For the education of their children? Or maybe to leave a legacy for the next generation? Then they will have to go for a long-term view, a longer-term view for that," AIA Philam Life chief investment officer Arleen Guevara told CNN Philippines' The Exchange with Rico Hizon. "They can go and invest globally if the investment opportunities locally are not really sufficient to fulfill those requirements."

AIA Philam Life has partnered with affiliate AIA Investment Management to launch Elite Funds, which cater to investors seeking entry into the global landscape.

Investing in global markets grants access to more opportunities otherwise not available in one's country, said AIA IM head of funds, Shrikant Bhat, adding it diversifies one's risk portfolio across regions too.

Through global investments, Bhat said investors are also "able to tap into high-quality managers who are really good at what they do" across the globe, effectively catering to their long-term needs.

The key to successful investments is marrying customers' and fund managers' interests, which involves looking at both benefits in tactical opportunities in short-term events without derailing the long-term picture, he likewise shared.

Given investments are a major matter and shouldn't be taken lightly, Guevara reminded the importance of consulting experts before actually doing some investing.

"For Filipinos who want to begin investing globally, they can begin through investments in AIA Elite Funds, available through Family Provider or Money Works. They should have their trusted financial advisor, have that conversation with them, and deal with reputable institutions like AIA Philam Life so that they will avoid getting into something that they haven't really planned for," she explained.
