Over P100B pesos have been scammed by non-legitimate investment groups in the Philippines in the last decade. Most of them offer different forms of investments with the usual spiel of “guaranteed returns” in just a couple of days, weeks, or maybe a month. Today, nag-evolve na sila as they front agri-related business, cryptocurrencies, and even e-commerce just to fool more people and steal their hard-earned money.
With all of the investment offers out there, how we can know which one can be the best and which are those that are just waiting lang na makapangloko ng tao?
You see, alternative investments are new form of investments that can give good returns to you, but it is recommended that you must familiarize yourself first with the best alternative investments in the country today firsthand.
When we say alternative investments, it means that these are companies that offer returns based on their projections and your role to make the projections happen is to fund their business. Returns are good as you conservatively get to earn at least 10% of interest per year, which is way higher than the usual bank offer of 0.25% per annum, minus pa ang withholding tax jan. But of course, not all can be profitable and this form of investment can be considered as a high risk form of investment platform.
I myself prefer to put at least 20% of my investment fund to alternative investments as I consider my investment appetite high dahil sa dami na din na pinasok kong mga negosyo. In a crowd funding form of investment in a real estate business, I made at least 18% return, in another agri-related crowd funding platform I earned an average of 25% return, and in a crowd lending platform for SMEs in the Philippines my year to date return of investments is already at 15%. But of course, there are no guarantees in alternative investments dahil pag ang business ay nalugi, then you don’t expect to be paid right away or even none at all.
To be able to manage your risk, you should learn what are the most legitimate alternative investments in the country today and see if their business fits your investment appetite.
Here’s the good news for you as today! We are launching our Alternative Investments Online Course Bundle for you to learn the most trusted alternative investments we recognize in TGFI.
Enroll in this online course and get the chance to make around 10% return per year as well as you can already distinguish why you should invest or not pag may alternative investment na in-offer sa iyo!

Emgoldex recruiters claim that an investment of P1,000 will yield P5,000 to P10,000, while an investment of P35,000 can turn into P180,000 to P360,000.

Emgoldex is also not a registered corporation or partnership in the Philippines, and is not legally allowed to collect investments from the public. (ABS CBN News)
►Aman Futures Group
Aman Futures started operations in 2012 at Pagadian City, luring investors by offering them a return of 30-40 percent in eight days and a return of 50-80 percent in 18-20 days. In September, investors started filing complaints in the NBI against the firm for its failure to pay back their money. On Sept. 27, Aman Futures’ office closed down and its personnel were nowhere to be found. In October, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued a cease and desist order to Aman Futures to stop offering, soliciting or selling unregistered securities to the public. (Inquirer)
►KAPA Community Ministry International
KAPA claims to be a religious group which has been recruiting members and asking them to donate funds to the organization. In exchange, donors are promised a 30% monthly return — called “love gifts” or “monthly blessings” — in perpetuity. The SEC secured a freeze order from the Court of Appeals covering all bank accounts and properties linked to KAPA as the government intensifies its crackdown on what authorities call a Ponzi-type investment scam. KAPA assets are worth about ₱100 million, with at least nine luxury cars, a helicopter, insurance policies, cryptocurrency holdings, and other assets linked to the group. (CNN Philippines)
