Corporate Investment Management Agreement


Investment Management Agreement

Your company may have investible funds which are probably allotted for future investments such as purchase of equipment, construction of plants/buildings or for future business expansions. Optimize your funds and make them grow through the investment expertise of your fund managers in BDO Trust and Investments Group.

An Investment Management Account (Corporate) is an arrangement wherein BDO Trust acting as an Investment Manager (Agent) is authorized to manage the funds of a corporation, taking into account the investment objectives, strategies and guidelines set by the Client (Principal). Under an agency arrangement, your company will still have control on how you want your funds invested but the company will be spared of the administrative burden of a self-managed fund.

Client Suitability

Investment Management Account (Corporate) is ideal for corporations and institutions with investible funds but cannot devote time nor have the expertise in managing an investment portfolio. The company may want to maximize the earning potential of its excess funds while maintaining focus on its business operations.

Minimum Amount: PhP 1,000,000.00
Investment Outlets: Fixed income securities such as government securities, prime commercial papers, loans to prime accounts, special savings deposits.
Tax Status: Taxable (unless with BIR Tax Exemption Certificate)


Benefits to Clients

Professional Fund Management

When you invest with BDO Trust, you benefit from the expertise of seasoned investment professionals, all working together to deliver your investment goals and always keeping in mind your risk profile. These experts have the research capabilities, skills, knowledge, experience, as well as state-of-the-art technology  that allow them to decide when and what securities to buy and sell in order to yield the best possible returns for your funds.

Competitive Returns

Under an agency arrangement, your company funds are not subject to the usual reserve requirements. Thus, your money will be fully invested in outlets with higher yields compared to a regular savings account.

Versatility and Diversification

An investor has the option to spread out inherent risks by spreading funds in different investment outlets available in the market.

Safety of Investments

Investments go through an evaluation process by BDO-Trust's Investments Committee and approval by the Trust Committee before these are recommended to clients. Investment outlets include prime commercial papers, government securities and time deposits.

Administrative Ease

BDO Trust provides financial statements, documentation and legal assistance, and representations with government agencies concerned.
