As of March 31, 2011 Product Description and Customer Suitability

The RBank Balanced Fund is a peso-denominated unit investment trust fund (UITF) that is invested in both fixed-income securities and equities and is an investment alternative for clients looking for better returns than traditional bank deposits over a medium to long-term investment horizon. Its investment portfolio consists of deposits, government bonds, prime corporate bonds and listed equities. Minimum initial placement and maintaining balance is Php 50,000.00 while minimum additional placements are accepted at Php 10,000.00. Minimum holding period is 90 calendar days. In case of withdrawal prior to 90 days, early redemption fee of 0.50% of redemption amount or Php 500 (whichever higher) will be charged. As a UITF, the funds assets are subject to daily mark-to-market valuation and as such, clients returns are not guaranteed. Clients should be willing to take the attendant risks inherent in medium to long-term tradable fixedincome investments and listed equities. The Funds performance is benchmarked against 50% PSE index and 50% average 91 day Tbill rate.
