As part of its thirty year anniversary celebrations,  the Unit Trust Corporation recently celebrated thirty longstanding customers who remained loyal to the Corporation and who kept the faith over those thirty years.

For their unswerving allegiance, these 30 stalwart unitholders were treated to an exclusive breakfast with Executive Director, Ms. Eutrice Carrington, where they were given recognition and paid tribute in an intimate gathering at the Corporation’s headquarters on Independence Square, Port of Spain.

Ms. Carrington, in her welcome address, expressed how truly humbled and privileged she was to share and celebrate their loyalty in this moment of the Corporation’s history.

“My dear unitholders if it were not for your feedback, for your support, we could not have thrived and flourished in what has become an increasingly competitive industry,” said the Executive Director, noting that the UTC wished to recognize the role “you have played in making this organization a success as you continue to place your trust in us to make a difference in your own lives and in the lives of your families and friends.”

In praising their commitment, the Executive Director stressed that the Corporation was acutely aware that over the years, many local and international institutions offering various financial products and services, have aggressively courted them for their savings and investment resources. In spite of this, “you have remained steadfastly committed in your support of the UTC,” she noted.

Each customer was presented with a token of appreciation by the Executive Director who praised them for remaining “undaunted by the effects of the economy and their continued reliance on us and our commitment to ensuring that their financial objectives were fulfilled.”  She encouraged them to continue their steadfast loyalty and pledged to continue to honor the UTC’s commitment to them.

The Executive Director noted that the Unit Trust Corporation opened its doors in 1982 and ended that financial year with TT$42 million in funds under management and approximately 8,000 unitholders. To date, UTC’s funds under management now stands at TT$19.9 billion with more than 558,000 unitholders.
