Consul General Paul Raymund Cortes receives a gift from One Ayala Managing Director John Philip S. Orbeta as a token of the company’s appreciation.

DUBAI: Ayala Group of Companies will be conducting road shows across the UAE to roll out a unified program meant to take its services for Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) to the next level by way of a one-stop shop encompassing everything from real property to remittance, health care, education, even virtual wallets.

The move came as Ayala Corp. celebrates its 185th year experiencing, what One Ayala Managing Director John Philip S. Orbeta described as, “profitability (that) has improved steadily with 10-year net income Compound Annual Growth Rate at 15 percent.”

“Sa tingin naming, mayroon kaming maitutulong sa mga OFWs, 185th anniversary pasasalamat sa mga Pilipino. We are here (in the UAE) to tell the OFWs na nandito kami na partner ninyo, a reputable company,” Orbeta told The Filipino Times during presentation of One Ayala at Hotel Swissôtel Al Ghurair, Nov. 16.

The event, which had about a hundred attendees from the local Filipino community led by Consul General Paul Raymund Cortes himself and Labor Attaché Felicitas Bay, brought together the various companies under the Ayala Group, the representatives of whom took turns explaining the synergy and collaboration they have developed to better service OFWs.

“When you are an OFW, usually may pamilya ka sa Pilipinas; nagpapa-aral; gustong mag-ipon or invest… financial literacy. Lahat ng produkto naming nandito. Lahat nang iyan pwede naming i-provide ang service,” Orbeta said.

He said they will hold roadshows “to explain this.”

Cortes lauded the efforts, saying: “We continue to support the endeavors of Ayala One in spreading knowledge on financial literacy and investment particularly in real estate investment.

“Financial literacy has been a priority of the Consulate in spreading awareness of the need to be savvy with our hard-earned finances and our dreams and visions of investment.”
For his part, Manuel Arbues II, Ayala Land International Sales regional head for North America and the Middle East, in his presentation, said the country’s “largest and most-experienced real estate developer, covers all market segments from luxury, for which it has Ayala Land Premier, to upscale (Alveo), middle income and the OFW market for which the company offers Avida; affordable (Amaia) and even socialized housing for which it offers BellaVita.

He told The Filipino Times that OFWs planning to invest in condominium units should consider the ongoing Metro Manila Subway Project which cuts through the metropolis from Quezon City to Alabang and on to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA).
