We do the legwork
We make investing quick and easy, alleviating the usual administrative burden associated with direct ownership of such a multitude of local and international securities.
This Fund allows unitholders the opportunity to invest through equities (stocks) in each unit, within the macroeconomic framework of Trinidad and Tobago.
The portfolio is constructed to match or track the components of a market index, which in this case is a weighted combination of all securities on the All T&T Index on the Trinidad and Tobago Stock Exchange (TTSE) and a Global Energy Index. In the 2015 Budget, Energy vs. Non-Energy revenue measured 35:65; the Fund will mirror this distribution as follows:
65% — Securities listed on the All T&T Index
35% — Funds traded on the Global Energy Index
