FAQs

Unit Investment Trust Funds (UITFs) are open-ended, pooled trust funds denominated in pesos or any acceptable currency, which are operated and administered by a trust entity and made available by participation.

UITFs are not guaranteed by the trust company and not insured by the PDIC.

UITFs are open-ended thus, no maturity date.

Net Asset Value or NAV is a summation of the market value of each investment less fees, taxes, and other qualified expenses. Net Asset Value per Unit (NAVPU) is the current worth of a Unit of Participation in a Fund. This is computed by dividing the fund’s (NAV) by the total outstanding units.

A unit of participation represents a participant’s proportionate and undivided interest in the UITF as a whole.
