Step #1: Be empowered with the right information.

One of the things that the experts at Security Bank talked about is the Unit Investment Trust Fund (UITF). It's an easy and convenient way for the average Filipino to invest in financial markets.

A UITF pools together funds from different investors. This pooled fund is then managed by investment professionals of the institution. In this case, Security Bank's seasoned professional fund managers will select from various investment outlets with the goal of making the fund grow. This benefits its investors with attractive returns. Investment outlets include bank deposits, government and corporate bonds, and equities.

Ninotchka Sulit, Security Bank Trust Division Vice President, shares that their Trust Division (SBC Trust) has been operating since 1951 and has managed more than P55 billion worth of funds both from institutional and retail entities.
