What is the Overseas Filipino Bank or OFB?

The Overseas Filipino Bank (OFB) is a policy bank dedicated to provide financial products and services tailored to the requirement of overseas Filipinos and their beneficiaries.

Per the advisory posted by the Department of Finance on their Facebook page:

The LandBank and the Bureau of the Treasury (BTr) are also exploring ways of mobilizing the savings of overseas-based Filipinos for them to invest in the country‚Äôs capital markets.”
