Insular Life introduces new global fund

02:07 PM September 07, 2017

The key to long-term investing is diversification.  While a lot of Filipino investors may have different asset classes in their basket, most, if not all, may be exposed to just the local market.  Consistent with its thrust to provide Filipinos with a better financial future, Insular Life launches a new variable unit-linked (VUL) fund that allows the local investors to diversify into global markets using Philippine pesos.

The new VUL fund is called Peso Global Equity Fund. This fund aims to achieve long-term growth and capital appreciation by investing majority of its assets in instruments with principal exposure  in income-producing equity securities in markets throughout the world.

Insular Life Senior Executive Vice President and Head of Sales and Marketing, Jesus G. Hofileña says,   “At this point when funds are flowing into developed markets, it is timely to provide our clients with options to diversify internationally.  Peso Global Equity Fund provides access to international equities that can take our investors’ investment to the next level. The goal is to optimize their portfolio to be able to reach their financial goals. ”


It is not often that retail investors get to participate in the performance of world’s market leaders such as Microsoft, Unilever, Pfizer, Novartis, Chevron, Kimberly-Clark and Shell, and at the local currency at that. Thus, taking advantage of this opportunity, Insular Life introduces the Global Equity Fund in peso denomination so Filipinos can enhance their financial portfolio and achieve their goals for a child’s quality education, a comfortable retirement or wealth management.   Hofileña adds, “Investing in the Peso Global Equity Fund can be done by availing of Insular Life’s single pay VUL products, Variable Returns Asset and First Million Fund.”
