Unit Investment Trust Funds (UITF) Disclosures

 

DISCLOSURES

BDO Unit Investment Trust Funds (UITFs) are trust products. They are NOT DEPOSITS and are not insured by PDIC. Due to the nature of the investments and the marked-to-market valuation thereof, yields and potential yields cannot be guaranteed. Any income or loss arising from market fluctuations and price volatility of the securities held by the UITFs, even if invested in government securities, is for the account of the investor. As such, units of participation of the investor in the UITFs, when redeemed, may be worth more or be worth less than his initial investment/contribution. Historical performances, when presented are purely for reference purposes and are not guarantees of future results. BDO, as Trustee, is not liable for losses, unless upon willful default, bad faith or gross negligence. 

Prior to admission of an investor in the UITFs, BSP Circular 593 requires that BDO perform a client profiling process to guide the investor in choosing investments best suited to his objectives, risk profile and experience. Prior to making investments, an investor must read the complete details of the UITF in the plan rules, understand the risks involved which are provided in the Risk Disclosure Statement, make his own risk assessment and when necessary, seek independent/professional opinion. The plan rules governing each of the BDO UITFs, as well as the external auditor’s report for each fund, are available at the office of BDO Trust and Investments Group for any interested investor. To invest, an investor is required to submit/accomplish the following documentary requirements for UITFs: valid identification documents as required by the Anti-Money Laundering Act (AMLA), Risk Disclosure Statement and client suitability assessment forms. 

An investor is also advised that BSP Circular 593 likewise requires that the client suitability assessment forms be updated whenever the characteristics, preferences or circumstances of the investor change or at least once every three years, provided that if the investor does not notify the trust institution of such change, he is deemed to have waived his right for a new client suitability assessment for the prescribed period.

Investments in the specific UITFs are evidenced by a Participating Trust Agreement and a Confirmation of Participation.
