I join with the Chairman, Ms. Amoy Chang Fong in welcoming each and every one of you here this evening to the Trinidad and Tobago Unit Trust Corporation’s 30th Anniversary Dinner and Award Function.
Today is a very significant day in the life of the Corporation. It was on this day thirty years ago that the UTC established its first office, launched its first unit scheme and invited the public to do business. The UTC commenced its operation with a national policy mandate, to pioneer the local mutual fund industry and to create a shareholding democracy where the ordinary people in this country could participate in the money and capital market.
