A total of 89 funds from 16 investment houses and Trust Institutions competed in this year’s search for the Best Managed Funds and the best-managed funds were awarded at the Philippine Junior Finance and Investment Summit 2019 held last September 7, 2019 at the SMX Convention Center–Manila.


Consistency is the key to our success. And having been recognized as the best-managed fund for 4 consecutive years by the CFA is proof of this. In AUB, our objective in managing our UITFs is to always provide the best returns at the least possible volatility. With this, investors in our funds can be assured that their investments are safe.” said Andrew A. Chua, senior vice president and head of Trust and Investments Group of AUB.

The AUB Gold Dollar Fund is a dollar-denominated bond fund suited for clients who are willing to absorb principal risk associated with changing market conditions. Its investment objective is to achieve the best rate of return by investing in a diversified portfolio of fixed income securities and to achieve a rate of return equivalent to the rolling yield of the 5-year US Treasury Notes net of fees. The modified portfolio duration of the Fund’s investments shall not exceed five (5) years.
