What are Unit Investment Trust Funds?

UITFs are pooled funds of investors with no predefined term or termination date. It is up to the investor to determine how long he wants to keep his funds invested. These are made available to investors by purchasing units of participation in the fund.

How do I invest or own Units in UITF?

Investors may purchase units of participation in the fund at the current Net Asset Value per Unit (NAVPu). The units of participation represent the investor’s proportionate share in the total value of the fund. As an investor in the fund, the client does not own any specific asset of the fund, only a proportionate share in all of the fund’s assets.

How do I know if my investment in UITFs are earning or not?

UITFs are subject to valuation of the underlying investments wherein it reflects the true value of an asset with respect to the current market price. Each investor in the UITF owns an equivalent number of units wherein its value may vary daily depending on the current market value of the investments of the fund as represented by the current NAVPu, and can then be compared with the NAVPu at the time the investor has purchased their units of participation. The Redemption of the units by the investor is the only way to actually realize any appreciation or depreciation in the price per unit. The investor bears all profits / losses.

How is NAV and NAVPu computed?

Net Asset Value (NAV) – The Net Asset Value of the fund is the sum total of all the funds’ Current Market Value of its underlying investments, Plus the accrued interests from the investments, less fees, taxes and liabilities. The trust fee and Taxes are accrued daily and computed as follows: Accrued Daily Trust Fee = (NAV x trust fee)/360days withholding taxes is equivalent 20% of the accrued interest income. Net Asset Value per Unit (NAVPu) – The NAVPu represents the price per unit of participation. It is computed as the NAV divided by the total number of units of participation in the fund.

Each AUB UITFs have a specific holding period and an investor may withdraw or redeem their investments after the holding period. The Client may also withdraw or redeem their investments before the holding period but this will be subject to an early redemption fee of 0.50% based on the amount redeemed.

It is important to note that investing beyond the holding period will not subject the funds to any early redemption fee, and in fact becomes withdrawable anytime after the holding period.

How much will an investor get when the UITF investment is redeemed?

No other charges will be deducted after the redemption. However, an additional deduction may be applied if the client redeems his UITF investment prior to the completion of the minimum holding period.

Yes. Excess contributions will be credited to the AUB account of the investor.

How do I determine the current market value and returns of my UITF investments?

(Daily NAVPu are available daily through email or AUB website, (an income tracker calculator is available in the website to determine client’s UITF investment value). A monthly SOA (statement of account) is also made available via the investor’s designated email address and / or thru their AUB Mobile APP ( UITF accounts subject for enrollment).

Example on Current MarketValue Computation:

No. of Units Owned 100 units
NAVpu for the Day 1.5
Market Value of UITF Investment 100 units x P1.50 = P150

*If the value of your UITF increased, there is a gain/earning and if it decreased, there is a loss.

Example returns Computation:

Current Value of UITF Investment P150 P150
Original Purchase Amount of UITF P100
Gain/(Loss) P150 - P100= P50

*Since the current market value is higher than the original purchase amount in this example, your investment gain is P50.
