EastWest Priority Lifestyle Series’ Lunar New Year celebration was taken to Davao just a day after its Cebu leg where the Bank officially opened their first Priority Center in Cebu.
This celebration for the Year of the Water Rabbit kicked off the Series’ slew of events for 2023. This was the first face-to-face Lunar New Year celebration for Priority Center clients in Davao since the Center formally launched in 2020.
The Bank’s new CEO, Visayan Mr. Jerry G. Ngo gave his well-wishes in both Chinese and Bisaya which charmed the guests. He also expressed his eagerness to forge stronger partnerships with the clients in Mindanao.
“EastWest is more than prepared to meet any movement, circumstance, and potential headwind that can happen in the local and global economy. A bank that can always and consistently provide what our customers and clients need, no matter what, is what we constantly aspire to be. I’m confident that we can easily achieve this goal, even more so with your continued support,” assures Jerry Ngo.
An outlook on what to expect for the Year of the Water Rabbit was given by Feng Shui master Patrick Lim Fernandez. Guests were also delighted with a traditional lion dance. These are Priority Lifestyle Series staples that the Bank’s clients look forward to each year.
According to Fernandez, the Year of the Water Rabbit is the peak of spring. This will bring about a reinvigoration and a reintegration back in society. He added that industries with fire and metal elements will benefit the most in the Year of the Rabbit.
“Fire industries are going to be good this year so that would be technology on the software side, energy, communications and media, entertainment and events and food,” Fernandez said.
“Other industries that are also looking good have to do with metal – banking and finance, mining, jewelry, beauty products, medical, dental and healthcare, and technology on the hardware side or equipment,” he added.
Fernandez also shared that the creativity energy will be strong in the Year of the Rabbit and people should take advantage of this to brainstorm and come up with new ideas. ‘
“But try to guard against losing focus. Don’t try to do everything at once. Try to think and choose what is important and from there you will be able to get things done,” he said.
The celebration closed with Rafael S. Algarra, EastWest’s Senior Executive Vice President gladly shared with the guests that the Bank’s portfolio has only increased and grown further in 2022 because of the steady reopening of the country and the world.
“We will continue introducing more investment opportunities to help you strengthen your portfolio according to your needs and preferences. EastWest Priority and our qualified and expert RMs will always be here to guide you, navigate the markets, and grow your wealth,” he promised.
