The following are the best UITF in the Philippines 2019. The data includes complete list of best performing UITF for equity funds, balanced funds, bond funds and money market funds. If you have Unit Investment Trust Funds (UITFs), you must be updated with the periodic ranking of UITF to know how your investments performed in the last months, quarter, or period compared to other UITF.
What is UITF?
UITF stands for Unit Investment Trust Fund. UITFs are pooled investments of different funds, companies, corporations, invested and diversified to other investments, stocks, bonds, securities, money market and other funds managed by fund experts and fund professionals.
UITFs are regulated by the BSP (Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas).
Are UITFs the same as Mutual Funds? To answer that, please read, “Mutual Funds vs UITFs – Similarities and Differences: Advantages and Disadvantages.”
Why should you invest in UITF and how do you know it’s right for you?
This question is always asked so many times on the threads so it will be great if I share the answers in this post.
If you have extra bulges of money and you want to invest them so that they can earn some cash (higher than Time Deposits) and you are aware of the risks involved, you phone your banker and ask about any investment product that could give you that, they will surely give UITF as one of the options.
UITFs, unlike Mutual Funds, are easy to open nowadays. Last year, PNB started the UITF Online account opening in the Trust banking Empire. We can now open online and paperless. As long as you have an existing bank account, in PNB for instance, you can open or enroll your UITF and redeem or withdraw your funds from it.
How do you choose the UITF that is right for you?
It’s simply by knowing your investment goal and your risk appetite.

Global market and Fed hikes contributed in the decline of investments. On the other hand, financial experts and investors are still confident about the future growth of the economy which will eventually lift up other businesses and investments in the country.
