The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) recently launched Wealth Watch Book II, a guidebook on financial fitness and consumer well-being. This publication expands the lessons on personal finance management of the first book.

Like Book I, Book II compiled articles penned by a team of BSP officers. This edition focused on topics about prudent consumer spending, investment and entrepreneurship. The Wealth Watch Books were published as part of the BSP's objective to promote financial literacy and consumer protection. The BSP believes that a financially-educated citizenry can become more effective partners in maintaining monetary and financial stability.
