Unit Investment Trust Funds (UITFs)
UCPB Balanced Fund (UBF)
The UCPB Balanced Fund (UBF) is a Peso-denominated open-ended mark-to-market pooled fund operated, administered, managed and trusteed by the UCPB Acting Through Its Trust Banking Group (UCPB-TBG). It is invested in equities and fixed-income securities.
The UBF is made available to investors with a medium to long-term investment horizon (not more than 15 years), investors seeking a simple way to achieve a diversified holding of stocks and fixed-income investments, and investors willing to accept moderate fluctuations in unit prices.
- Investments in the UBF are with aggressive risk. Its investments are in Philippine Government Securities (which are considered risk free by BSP), prime corporate loans/bonds with minimal credit risk and exchange listed stocks.
- Higher Yielding. The yields of the UBF may be superior when compared to regular time deposits.
- Affordable Diversification. A client is able to invest in a variety of equities and fixed income securities for just a minimum of PhP 10,000.00.
- Potential to Increase Earnings. Aside from earning interest from the accrual of underlying investments, as mark-to-market prices move up or down, the client may redeem at an opportune time and reap capital gains. However, be aware that such redemption may also result in possible loss.

Any loss/income arising from the market fluctuations and price volatility, even if invested in Government Securities, is for the account of the client. As such, when redemptions/withdrawals are made, the value of said redemption/withdrawal of the client may be worth more or be worth less than the initial investment/contribution. Historical performance, when presented, is purely for reference purposes and is not a guarantee of similar future results. It is further understood that UITFs are not insured by the Philippine Deposit Insurance Corporation (PDIC) and that losses, if any, shall be for the account of the client who shall have no right of recourse against UCPB-TBG, unless attributable to UCPB-TBG’s act of gross negligence, willful default, or evident bad faith. Prior to investing in any of the UITFs, a client suitability assessment shall be conducted by a certified UITF marketing personnel. It is likewise advised that the client reviews the Plan Rules/Declaration of Trust prior to investment. The Plan Rules/Declaration of Trust is available upon request from UCPB-TBG or any UCPB branch.
