Metrobank Unit Investment Trust Funds

Metrobank offers Unit Investment Trust Funds (UITFs) that let you invest with the help of Metrobank’s financial experts.

Unlike deposit accounts, UITFs do not grow your money through interest. Instead, the money you invest in them grows depending on growth in the value of the assets in the fund you select after a period of time.

Based on the strategy of a qualified fund manager, each fund invests in higher-tier financial assets such as stocks, corporate notes, government securities, or high-yielding deposits.

You have several funds that you can choose from, each designed to help you meet a certain financial goal. Here are the kinds of Metrobank UITFs:

UITF Product Highlights

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.
