The investment objective of the CSCEIF, which is considered to be of high risk, is to generate medium- to long-term capital growth through investments primarily in equity securities issued by Philippine companies. The Fund shall implement its proprietary Index Plus investment strategy whereby the majority of the CSCEIF’s investment portfolio is invested in the equity securities of component companies of the Philippine Stock Exchange index (PSEi). A small portion of the net assets of the Fund shall be invested in the equity securities of non-PSEi component companies, which the Fund reasonably expects to perform better than the equity securities of PSEi component companies. For liquidity purposes and as may be called for by investment strategies from time to time, the Fund shall invest no less than five percent (5%) of its net assets in short-term fixed income instruments, denominated in Philippine Peso time deposits, Treasury Bills and other government securities or debt papers of domestic private corporations.
The minimum initial investment is Three Hundred Pesos (Php300.00). The Regular Subscription Plan (RSP) is an investment program whereby an investor commits to invest in an uninterrupted manner either Three Hundred Pesos (Php300.00) or Five Hundred Pesos (Php500.00) per month in the CSCEIF for at least sixty (60) months provided such investor has put in the minimum initial investment of Five Hundred Pesos (Php500.00). Any interruption of the periodic investment or any redemptions made during the sixty-month period shall convert the category of the investor to one that is regular. A regular investor’s minimum investment amounts subsequent to his initial minimum investment is Five Hundred Pesos (Php500.00).
