Best Mutual Funds for Filipino Investors

Best mutual funds are gauged by the following indicators:

  • Professional Management
  • Net Yields
  • Growth

But as an ordinary Filipino investor, I am more interested on returns on my mutual fund investment by monitoring  the Net Asset Value Per Share or NAVPS.  It inspires me if the current NAVPS is higher than the NAVPS when I bought my shares from a mutual fund. It just means, I will earn profits if I redeem my shares with the current rate.  Of course, it should be within the redeemable period. Otherwise, I am charged with exit fees which will reduce my earnings. 

There are three  topnotch  mutual fund companies in the Philippines: Philequity, First Metro and Philam Asset.   International Marketing Group have partnered with these companies for concrete application of  the steps to building a solid financial foundation when it comes to investing. Investment is an integral part of the total financial solution advocated by IMG.  

The tables below are comparisons of the NAVPS and the latest performance of the various mutual funds as of this writing: 


Philequity Management Inc (PEMI)

PEMI is an investment management company established in 1993. PEFI was awarded by the Investment Company Association of the Philippines (ICAP) as the best performing equity fund in the 5-year and 10-year categories for the three straight years. 

I focused my investment with PEMI on its equity fund. In my own analysis, Philequity Fund is the best performing product of PEMI. 


First Metro Asset Management, Inc. (FAMI)

FAMI was established by First Metro Investment Corporation (FMIC) in partnership with the Catholic Educational Association of the Philippines (CEAP) and Marist Brothers Foundation 

decided to concentrate my FAMI investment in its Save & Learn Balance Fund. In my judgement, it is the best mutual fund under the balanced category.  


Philam Asset Management, Inc (PAMI)

Philam Asset Management, Inc., is an asset management company that manages, distributes and provides investment advisor to nine (9) mutual funds, It is wholly owned by Philam Life, the No. 1 life insurance company in the Philippines, and member of the AIA Group, a leading life insurer in Asia region.  PAMI is a multi awarded mutual fund company with recognitions given by ICAP, Asian Investor and Readers Digest.
