  Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) on the Regular Subscription Plan A. Overview: 1. What is the Regular Subscription Plan (RSP)? The Regular Subscription Plan is an investment program that allows you to nominate a regular contribution amount for the purchase of units for your investment fund account on a periodic basis, either on a monthly or quarterly basis. 2. What are the benefits of RSP? Aside from the usual advantages derived from investing in the BPI Investment Funds, RSP offers the following additional benefits: a. Higher returns. By enrolling your Investment Fund account into the RSP, a regular contribution amount is debited from your BPI settlement account on a periodic basis, say on a monthly or quarterly basis, for the purchase of units based on the prevailing price. This build up strategy allows you to average your acquisition cost. When prices are low, more units are purchased, while when prices are high, fewer units are bought, but the overall value of your portfolio likewise increases. b. No market-timing needed. Because additional investments are automatically programmed regardless of the movements in the market, there is no longer any need to analyze market information before deciding when to invest. Gathering the relevant information necessary to time the market is being done by the Fund Manager for you. Quantitative studies conducted abroad have proven that while the age- old advice to buy low and sell high is simple and obvious, a client’s very unsystematic behavior leads many to do the opposite. It is advised, therefore, that the best course of action is to invest regularly and to stay invested. c. Convenience. You don’t need to visit a BPI branch to buy units of participation since contributions are programmed and electronically processed depending on the schedule that you have identified. d. Control. You retain control over your investments since you determine the dates of contribution and the regular contribution amounts for the RSP. Moreover, you may stop and re-start the RSP any time. e. Affordability . With low minimum initial and additional contribution amounts, you can now start building your investment portfolio!  3. What funds will be made available for RSP?
