Dear Bryan Dujapa,

Response to Request

The information on registered firms may be checked online through the SEC Check App (https://bit.ly/secmobileapp), the official mobile app of the Securities and Exchange Commission Philippines.  Apart from providing information on whether a company is registered with the SEC, it gives on-the-go guides in doing business and investing in the Philippines, and contains investor alerts and educational materials aimed at protecting the investing public from investment scams.

For further verification of the company's registration, you may coordinate directly with the SEC Company Registration and Monitoring Department.  You may send an email to crmd_publicassistance@sec.gov.ph or contact them through telephone numbers (632) 8818-7187; 8818-0763; 8818-5554 and 8818-8803.

Please bear in mind, however, that a SEC company registration does not automatically grant authority to offer investments in securities, bonds, commercial papers or similar financial instruments to more than 19 investors. The appropriate SEC license/certificate of authority must be obtained to engage in the said activities.  Kindly visit the following to obtain more information:
