Potential for higher returns from a portfolio of selected equities.
The Fund aims primarily for capital growth over the medium to long-term by investing in a selection of exchange-listed equities.
The following are the investment outlets where the Trustee may invest the Fund in, depending on their availability or other market circumstances: Exchange-listed equities and fixed income securities, deposits in the Trustee’s bank or in other banks, securities issued or guaranteed by the Philippine Government or the BSP, tradable securities issued by any supranational entity, collective investment plans of the trustee/other trustees and such other tradable investment outlets/categories allowed for UITFs by BSP and approved by the Trustee’s Trust Committee as suitable for the Fund. The Fund may also avail itself of financial derivative instruments solely for the purpose of hedging risk exposures, subject to the guidelines set by the BSP for such activities and likewise duly approved by the Trustee’s Trust Committee.
The Fund is suitable for individual and corporate investors with aggressive risk appetite and who seek potentially higher returns through stock market investments but are also aware of the possibility of capital losses that such investments may entail. In order to minimize risks and maximize earning potential, participants/trustors are recommended to stay invested in the Fund for more than three (3) years.
