What are Metro Aspire Feeder Funds?
The Metro Aspire Feeder Funds are medium- and high-risk investments that make investing affordably easy to everyone. These funds require a build-up period which is the length of time you make contributions to your investment on a monthly basis through an auto-debit feature.
The Metro Aspire Bond Feeder Fund is a medium-risk investment. A feeder fund structure mandates the fund to invest 90% of its assets in a single collective investment scheme (CIS) or target fund. This is so clients can access each funds’ target fund at a more affordable price point. This low-budget investment that starts at P1,000 lets you start investing in funds that would have cost P10,000 if you were to invest in it yourself.
When it comes to investing in feeder funds, you know you’re in good hands with Metrobank.

Unit Investment Trust Funds (UITFs) are NEITHER deposits account NOR obligations of, NOR guaranteed, NOR insured by the METROPOLITAN BANK & TRUST COMPANY or its affiliates or subsidiaries. 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. As such, units of participation of the investor/s when redeemed, may be worth more than or less than his/her initial investment/principal. Historical performance is purely for reference purposes and is not an assurance of future performance. The Trustee is not liable for investment losses unless such was incurred upon willful default, bad faith or gross negligence.
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.
Fees other than the Trust/Management Fee, such as External Audit and Custodianship Fees are described more thoroughly in the Key Information and Investment Disclosure Statement (KIIDS) of the Funds.
