At present, the Investment Company Association of the Philippines or ICAP has several mutual fund companies as their members.
So if you’re thinking of investing in mutual funds, then I hope this list of mutual fund companies in the Philippines can help you find the best mutual fund for your investing requirements.
In the country, there are basically four types of mutual funds – stock or equity funds, bond funds, money market funds and balanced funds.
What’s the difference between these four?
- Stock or Equity Funds – invests primarily in shares of stocks issued by Philippine corporations
- Bond Funds – invests primarily in treasury notes issued by the Philippine government and commercial papers issued by reputable companies in the country
- Money Market Funds – invests in the same instruments as bond funds but at shorter terms, which may just be one year or less
- Balanced Funds – invests in both stocks and bonds
What type of mutual fund should you invest in? It all depends on your investing goals and risk tolerance. I suggest you read my guide on investing if you want to know how to prepare yourself in becoming an investor.
