What are Unit Investment Trust Funds?

Unit Investment Trust Funds or UITF are investment options for investors who may not have the time or expertise to do the investing themselves but are interested to place their money in income-generating assets, such as stocks, bonds, money market instruments and other similar products.

UITFs in the Philippines are typically offered by banks, and what they do is pool funds collected from investors and manage these funds collectively. All income of the fund is added back to the fund which contributes to the increase in price of each unit of the fund. UITF investors make money when the price of each unit of UITF appreciates in value.

UITFs are very similar to Mutual Funds, but they still have some differences. To learn more about Investing in UITFs, check out our resource guide below:
