UITFs are not covered by the Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation (PDIC) and do not offer a guaranteed return or yield. Any income or loss arising from market fluctuations and price volatility of the securities held by the UITF, even if invested in government securities, is for the account of the investor/s.

Prospective clients undergo a profiling process to determine their suitability to invest in a particular UITF based on their investment objectives and risk tolerance. Clients are advised to read the Declaration of Trust/Plan Rules of the Fund, which may be obtained from the Trustee, before making a decision to invest.
Investors in the UITF are susceptible to different kinds of risks with varying degrees depending on the underlying securities of the UITF they choose and a clear understanding of these risks must be established before any investment is made. A detailed explanation of these risks may be found in the Key Information and Investment Disclosure Statement (KIIDS) of each UITF.
