Investment Policy

As a feeder fund, the Fund shall invest at least 90% of its assets in a single collective investment scheme called the Target Fund. The remaining portion of the assets (maximum of 10%) will be invested and reinvested by the Trustee, with full discretionary powers, in deposits in the Trustee’s bank or in other banks.

Client Suitability

In order to minimize risks and maximize earning potential, participants/trustors are recommended to stay invested for more than three (3) years. The Fund is not suitable for short-term investing.
 

Participation in the Fund shall be open to Filipino citizens, Philippine residents and domestic corporations with capacity to contract and who are not considered US Persons under the US securities and tax laws.
