fill out forms
This task may seem simple, but there have been lots of repeated questions on this, so I’m finally blogging about it.
Let’s start with an Individual Account.  Tick off the 1st box (Individual).  Most important thing to remember if it’s an individual application is that you need NOT fill out the ‘Secondary Account Holder’ portion.

Look at the images first and then read the descriptions that follow.
The first part is the ‘Personal Information’.  This is pretty basic.  It just asks for your personal details like name, address, contact numbers, etc.  Make sure you put your correct Email address. COL Financial is an online brokerage, and hence, most of its correspondence will be via email.  (Always check your Spam folder as well for COL’s initial email and add this email address to your Contacts).
The 2nd part is ‘Additional Information’ and it asks about your employment details.  If you are unemployed, just tick off that box and write N/A (Not Applicable) on the other boxes.  Otherwise, answer all questions.
The 3rd part is ‘Disclosures’.  Again, pretty simple.  Just answer either yes or no. If any part here doesn’t apply to you, just write N/A.
The 4th part is ‘Financial and Investment Profile’.  Just for compliance sake, let’s tick off  our choices here.  
For the ‘Investment Objectives’, all you need is to number them according to your priority.  
a.  ‘Capital Preservation’, for lack of better explanation, is if you want to preserve your capital.  You are very conservative in your approach to investing in that you want a guaranteed rate of return or at least just a return of what you originally invested.  
b.  ‘Long-term Investment’ is if you are ok to invest funds you won’t be needing for at least 5 years or more.  
c.  ‘Growth’ is if you want your investments to grow at a rate faster than what regular banks give.   
d.  ‘Speculation’ is if you have a very aggressive approach to investing.  You are willing to take on higher risks just to have a higher rate of investment return.
For Bank info, it is really up to you to fill this part out, but it is NOT mandatory that you have a bank account before you can open a COL account.  If you don’t have one (or you just don’t want to divulge the info), you may just write N/A.
On the signature part, just sign on the first line (Primary Account Holder).
Last is the signature part on page 4 of Online Securities Trading Agreement.  Please write your address on #25.2.  Write the date when you signed the document.  Write your name and sign on the first signature line (Primary).  
We also have 2 signature cards to sign, same as what banks usually require us when we open an account with them.
For Joint Accounts, it is basically the same procedure, except that you need to write down the details of the other party on the ‘Secondary Account Holder’ portion.  Secondary Account Holders may be your spouse, parent, sibling, adult child, a friend, any relative or anyone for that matter.
For Minors (below 18 yrs), parents may open an ITF Account for them.  This is how to fill out the app.  
Instead of ticking off ‘Individual’, tick off ‘Others’ and write ITF.  On the ‘Secondary Account Holder’ portion, write the details of the child.
On the signature portion, the adult signs as the Primary Account Holder on the first line, and writes the name of the child on the second line.  Be sure to put on the date when you accomplished the forms.
Same thing here and on the signature cards.  The adult writes his name and signs on the first line, and writes the name of the child on the second line.  
In addition, the Primary Account Holder must print and sign the Supplementary Form for ITF Accounts, and attach it to the app before submitting.


There you have it.  Now, that you’ve filled out the forms, just attach a copy of your ID (please sign on the copy 3x) and a billing statement (credit card, electric, water, mobile, phone, bank statement, etc.).  Once everything is ready, either you submit personally to COL or have it picked up (within Metro Manila only).  Call COL’s hotline at 651-5888.  
For TrulyRichClub members, we do have a point person in COL to whom you can scan/email the documents first before mailing just to make sure everything is ok to avoid delays.  Please pm me in our exclusive TRC social site and I will give you the name and email.
Thanks and God bless!

  2. Hi joey, this is my 1st time to try truly rich investment. Would like to ask to whom should i email my scanned COL forms for the application, my ID and billing statements?

    Thank you. Hope to hear from you soon

  4. Gerwin T. Quintal on September 3, 2013 at 4:18 pm said:

    Hi Mam, kindly send me the email of the COL representative to whom I’ll send my COL application forms and requirements. Thank You.

    • I will email you Gerwin. thx

      • Hi Joey! Kindly email to me the contact person too.

        BTW, this is just for checking purposes right? And if everything is okay then we have to send the documents via courier?


        • Hi Marianne. Are you a TRC Member? If not, you can always email the docs to Yes, it’s just to check whether the docs are ok and the forms completely filled out, but you still have to send them via courier.

          Another thing you, or anyone could do, is to fill out the forms online, and one of COL’s agents will get back to you to give you further instructions.

          • I’m a TRC member Joey.

          • My sister is interested to invest in stock market too. I have few questions to raise:

            How about if yung billing statement nya kasama yung name ng kanyang partner. Is it okay?

            She forgot her SSS and TIN number, okay lang ba na wala yun? By the way, she `s working in Canada.


  5. what if we want to have joint account , We’re going to fill up the primary and secondary account holder right? and what are requirements needed? thank you so much ms joey.

    Hi Joey,

    I am a TRC member and currently living in Abu Dhabi. Can you please send me the name and email address of the COL representative that will check my application form? Also, if I want to make my 2 kids and husband as my beneficiaries, do I need to fill up 3 application forms for each? So will that give me 3 account numbers?

    One more, as I am in Abu Dhabi, is it okay if I’ll just send my application forms and billing statements/identification cards via courier?

    Thanks and God bless!

    Best Regards,

  12. Ma. THeresa S. Sanchez on November 22, 2013 at 3:19 am said:

    Hello Ms. Joey;

    Im a new TRC member and Im interested sa Stock Market and I hope you could guide me kasi I need to do something about my financial problem and I believe in joining TRC I will be Spiritually and financially stable.Mam I would like to ask if the secondary acoount holder is my benificiary and she needs to submit the same requiremnts too?Thank you.

    • Hi Theresa. The Secondary Acct holder is not your beneficiary; she is a co-principal. Meaning, both of you are owners of the acct. COL acct is so much just like bank accts. No beneficiary or heirs. If something happens to the principal acct holder, the acct is frozen and automatically forms part of the estate. The heirs would have to go through extra judicial proceedings to stake a claim.

    hi Joey

    In the specimen signature card, there is a box for the TIN..I do not have a TIN since i work outside of the philippines…what should i put instead?

    In the application I put my sss number instead of the TIN..should i put my SSS number in the specimen signature card as well?



  41. Hi joey!

    I’m just about to start opening an account with COL. I’m here in Saudi Arabia, Can I just scan the application form and send it to my relatives in the Philippines via email so they will be the one to send it to COL office in manila?

    • Hi. COL needs the original documents as required by PSE. Can’t email. The email is just to make sure your docs are complete to avoid delay in the processing.

  42. Rodysha Clacer on February 24, 2014 at 8:43 pm said:

    Hi Joey, can i fill up the application form through online and then print out before sending to Col? and can i have the contact person to email my scan documents? thanks Joey

I’m not yet an official member of TRC but I’m going to….tnx can u pls. answer me in my email so I read it immediately? tnx. —

  44. Hi Joey,

    Just a mailing address concern. In “how to open col account” step by step guide, the address shown there is 2403-B, East Tower…, but in the customer account information form, it’s 2401-B, East Tower…

    which of the 2 should we use?

  45. Hi Joey,

    Can you also send me the email address / name of the person who can check my application form and documents for COL? Thank you!

    Best regards,

    Hi Joey
    i want my husband to be a secondary account holder.but he is not here.he is a OFW. so pano po yun Signature nya s COL application?

    Thanks You

    • He has to sign the form. You’d have to either send it to him and he sends to COL, or he sends to you and you send to COL. Both of you need to provide ID. 1 Bill statement would suffice. You both should write the same home address (as shown on the bill)

  47. Agnes on March 7, 2014 at 9:08 pm said:


    Hi Ms. Joey! I am a new TRC member. I have few questions about opening COL account and filling up the forms. Can I ask for your email address? Thanks!

    Hi Joey!
    I’m an OFW in KSA with a year remaining b4 going home, just want to be member of TRC soon, then later want to apply for COL account, but I don’t have any billing statement here, except for the bank atm we use when we received our salary, does this inquiring slip can be use to submit together with my ID’s for applying for col account?
    Hoping for your answer..
    Thanks and regards,

    • HI Jon. If you want to be a member of TRC, you don’t need any of those requirements except sign up through any TRC link you find here in my blog. Just click any TRC logo or TRC word you find here.

      As for your COL acct, the sooner you open an acct with them, the better. For the Billing statement, you can use any bill that has your address on it, even if it’s not under your name (landlord’s perhaps). The reason for the bill is to verify your address. So, just send anything that has your address on it, and email COL ( and see if they’d accept the doc you submit.

  55. Jonjon on April 29, 2014 at 2:19 am said:

    Hi Joey!

    I just already a member of TRC upon receiving a confirmation email today. I would like to ask you, what is the email of representative to submit my scanned COL application and ID docs for approval before I send it via courier?
