So, since I don't have much to do these days, I have been visiting my COL regularly just to see how the market is doing, not because I want to be an expert but because I am just bored these days.
One day, I noticed a "Mutual Fund" tab added ( see picture below, I encircled the it) and I thought, maybe it is just there all along and I didn't notice it. Of course I clicked on it just to see what it is. Apparently, you can now invest in any mutual fund ( I see two of my mutual funds I invested in) online using your COL account. I really thought this feature is old until I received an email earlier ( see second picture below.)
So, there you go... No need to go the bank to deposit money to 'that' mutual fund account, no need to scan the receipt ... no need to... ahhh! I remember those times that I have to mail every freakin' application forms to every single mutual fund I was interested in, now no more! This is great news to OFWs!
COL App and now this? Now I'm impressed. COL is making investing easier for us!
