The Void is not synonymous with stagnation; rather, it's a fertile ground for exploration and discovery. By understanding and embracing the Void, creatives can liberate themselves from the constraints of expectation and perfectionism. This liberation becomes a catalyst for fresh ideas, enabling a departure from the ordinary and a journey into uncharted territories of innovation.

Navigating the Void requires a willingness to confront uncertainty and silence the noise of external influences. It's a practice in mindfulness and self-discovery—a journey into the depths of one's own thoughts and emotions. In this solitude, creatives often find the raw materials for groundbreaking concepts, discovering connections and patterns that were previously obscured.

The process of engaging with the Void is not about avoiding challenges but transforming them into opportunities. It encourages a shift in perspective, viewing obstacles not as roadblocks but as stepping stones to innovation. By understanding 'the Void' as a realm of potential, creatives unlock the door to their most authentic and impactful work, revealing the beauty that emerges when the creative spirit is allowed to roam freely. In essence, the Void becomes not an abyss to be feared, but a sanctuary where creativity thrives, and our most brilliant ideas come to life.

GCash, the Philippines’ top finance app and largest cashless ecosystem, recorded nearly half a million user base for GStocks PH as it ramps up the reach of its stock investment platform.

In 2023, GCash tapped AB Capital Securities, Inc. (ABCSI), to introduce GStocks PH to its millions of users, allowing them to diversify their portfolios and choose companies listed on the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE).

“Through our partnership with GCash, it’s now very easy for an individual to open an account for local stock investments and trade in stocks, with just a tap of their finger,” said AB Capital & Investment Corporation Chairman and CEO Antonio Jose Periquet.

Together with ABCSI, GCash provides a stock investment platform that is more convenient, safer, and easier to understand, especially for beginner investors.

“I wish to commend GCash and AB Capital for this partnership aimed at improving access and delivery of financial products and services to our consumers. For us at the Commission, this partnership, which leverages advancements in digital technology, is precisely the kind of innovation that must be encouraged from our financial service providers, as it directly contributes not only to our efforts to accelerate financial inclusion but also capital market development,” said Commissioner McJill Bryant Fernandez of the Securities and Exchange

Commission in a recorded video message. GStocks PH has taken strides in gaining investors' confidence by establishing itself as a reliable trading channel and by offering well-timed investment insights and advisories to its users. With half a million users already registered to GStocks PH, GCash has attracted an extensive and diverse range of users in every region in the country namely in the National Capital Region (37%), North Luzon (15%), South Luzon (25%), Visayas (13%), and Mindanao (10%)

“We have a compounded annual growth rate of about 11 percent in stock market investors. I’m hopeful that with the easy access and the education initiatives that we are doing for the GCash subscribers, hopefully, at least in the next five years, if they could double that 1.9 million, we'll be happy," said Philippine Stock Exchange President and CEO Ramon Monzon.

With GStocks PH, GCash users can easily unlock the world of investing in local stocks – register easily, top up quickly and free of charge, as well as seamlessly invest in over 280 local companies listed on the PSE – all within the GCash app. Using the newest wealth tool of GCash, the Learning Hub, users can also access valuable and bite-sized content to better grasp financial concepts. GCash users can access the Learning Hub by going to GInvest from the main dashboard.

“We are very determined to craft different solutions and make wealth creation easier for millions of Filipinos, while ensuring compliance with our regulators. We found like-minded partners in AB Capital and the PSE who share the vision of advancing financial empowerment for more Filipinos in a way that is safe, easy, and less daunting,” said GCash Group Head of Wealth Management Jong Layug.
