COL created its own Equity Index Fund, which allows people to participate in the growth of the Philippines' top 30 largest and most traded companies.
What is COL Equity Index Fund (CEIF)?
The COL Equity Index Fund is a Philippine Peso-denominated fund that aims to generate long-term capital growth by track performance of the Philippine Stock Exchange Index (PSEi). The fund invests primarily in common stocks that comprise the PSEi, closely replicating their respective weightings in order to achieve similar returns as the index.
Being exposed to the country's 30 largest and most liquid stocks as represented by the PSEi, this means that the fund grows alongside the Philippines' overall economic prospects and improvement in general risk sentiment towards it.
This fund is ideal for investors who:
What is your Risk Profile?
Very Low Risk
Funds whose prices have minimal fluctuations by typically investing in short-term fixed-income securities like term deposits.
Funds whose prices have moderate fluctuations by investing in fixed-income securities like bonds.
Funds whose prices have moderate to wide fluctuations by investing in a mix of different asset classes.
Fund whose prices could possibly move in wide fluctuations as it is invested primarily in stocks and other risky assets.
The CEIF has among the lowest fees in the market (1.00%) while also having among the smallest initial (Php 500), additional (Php 100), and maintaining balances (Php 500). The CEIF has a short turnaround time of 4 days in crediting back cash after redemption and does not impost a lock-up period nor charge any penalties for early sale.
This fund invests in:
