Remittances are considered as the Philippines’ largest source of income (11% of GDP, according to the Banko Sentral ng Pilipinas) to the country; their effectiveness as a driver of economic growth depends on how these funds are invested. The government of the Philippines has started to promote initiatives to attract remittances for investments However, for any program to be effective, it must take into account the motivations and constraints facing overseas Filipino workers. Analyzing the study through the theory of planned behavior model together in the context of the Overseas Filipino Worker’s in Taiwan’s intention to remit for investment purposes will be able to determine the factors that would influence the given intention and how their personal disposition over their income would moderate these factors. 213 data were collected through convenience sampling. Hierarchical Multiple Regression was used in order to test the level of influence by the variables as well as the moderators. In conclusion the given factors influence their propensity to remit for investment purposes to a certain level. And their personal disposition over their income is found to be an important factor in their decision to remit. Policy makers, non-government organizations and business institutions who target the remittances should take into consideration these set of factors in order to promote entrepreneurship and better business decisions.
