Ask first time dads how the first few years feel like in his new role and a few scenes may come to mind—the immense joy they feel at the sight of their child giggling or the irresistible tiny hands tugging at their shirt to throw them up in the air again.
But behind all these poignant moments are the nitty-gritty details of raising a family—making sure they are out of harm’s way, providing for their education, and most importantly, managing their finances to make sure that their family’s needs are met.
When it comes to family money matters, AIA Philam Life ambassador dads Nico Bolzico and Anton del Rosario share a few lessons they have learned:
“One thing I learned about managing the family’s finances is to always have a backup plan. My son Myles is now ten, and I feel like the years flew by so quickly. With everything happening around us, I need to make sure our money is secure.” Anton, who is married to actress and fashion designer Samantha Richelle, also shares, “Sam and I regularly go over our finances to make sure we have enough savings for Myles’ future. And as a football dad, I’m also thinking about how to talk to other football parents and make sure that they’re also thinking about their kids’ future.”
Nico shares how he learned to keep track of where the money goes. “Ever since I became a father, I’ve been monitoring the family’s wants, needs, and also our savings. I need to make sure those three things are within our means and we are more than prepared for Thylane’s future,” says Nico, a doting father to his now one-year old daughter with fellow AIA Philam Life ambassador Solenn Heussaff.
In this day and age, modern dads like Nico and Anton have access to a multitude of ways to manage and grow the family’s finances, from financial apps to stay on track with their spending, online trading platforms where they can buy and sell stocks, to investment opportunities like real estate and online businesses which they can work on the side.
Secure Savings and a Better Future
When it comes to managing the family’s finances, it is important to look ahead and make sure the family is secure for the years to come. After all, every parent wants nothing but the best for their children. But how can they ensure that the family is prepared, especially nowadays when we are living through uncertain times?
The country’s premier life insurance company, AIA Philam Life, recently launched a product thataddresses this need. The latest addition to its diverse product portfolio, AIA Future Builder, is a new variable life insurance plan which works with parents to make their family’s dreams come true.
With AIA Future Builder, parents can maximize their savings potential with the option to diversify their investments through either locally or globally managed funds. The plan also comes with basic insurance protection for life, as well as additional benefit for total and permanent disability, and personal accident as its optional riders.

Being a parent means juggling a lot of responsibilities — making sure your child grows up with the right values and at the same time preparing for their future to make sure you can help make their dreams come true no matter what happens.
“My most important role for the rest of my life is to be a dad. It’s priceless! It’s tiring, and life can get a little crazy with kids, but nothing beats knowing I will be providing Myles with a promising future,” adds Anton
“I still have many things to learn, but it excites and frightens me at the same time. I just want to make sure my daughter can live the best life she can, and that’s my most important responsibility,” quips Nico.
