The AB Capital Equity Fund is a Unit Investment Trust Fund (UITF) designed to achieve superior returns for its participants via investing primarily in common stocks listed in the Philippine Stock Exchange.

AB Capital Balanced Fund aims to achieve a steady stream of income and long-term growth through balanced investments in companies listed in the PSE and high-grade fixed income securities.

AB Capital Premium Fund aims to maximize earnings by investing in medium to long-term high-grade fixed income securities.

AB Capital Short Term Fund aims to achieve stable flow of income and capital preservation through investments in products with a maximum tenor of one (1) year.

These products are ideally suited for investors with the following characteristics:
  •  nPrimary objective of long-term capital growth,
  • Medium to long-term investment time horizon, and
  •  nWilling to take on higher risks in exchange for the opportunity to earn higher returns than fixed income instruments over the long-term.


  • UITFs are open-ended pooled trust funds operated by a trust entity and made available via participation or units. 

  • nUITFs are valued on a marked-to-market basis which means that the price reflects the accurate value of the fund at the time of participation/redemption.

Equities vs. Fixed Income

  • If you had invested P100,000 in a portfolio made up of stocks in the Philippine Stock Exchange Index at the beginning of 2008, the value of your portfolio, including reinvested dividends, would have grown to over P370,000 by the end of 2012.

  • This is equivalent to an average return of 30% per annum. (Historical performance is for illustration purposes only, and may not be representative of future performance.)

  • If you had invested your P100,000 in fixed income instead, it would have grown to P159,000 by 2012 (using average 5-year PDS rates over the period). This is equivalent to an annual average return of 10%.

  • As of December 2012, 5-year PDS rate was around 7.59% per annum.

Advantages / Benefits

  • Professionally Managed: Investments are constantly monitored by a team of professional fund managers with a solid track record and experience in the capital markets, making adjustments to provide the best possible return.

  • Diversification and Affordability: For only a small amount, investors are able to invest in several different issues because it is pooled with other investors.  This diversification spreads the risks over a large base thus limiting potential losses.

  • Liquidity: The fund provides investors with greater liquidity than stocks or bonds. Investors can purchase or redeem their participation on any business day.

Objectives of the Fund

  • To achieve superior returns via investing in equities listed in the Philippine Stock Exchange. 

  • To provide higher returns than fixed income investments.
