Description and history
The Company was a closed-end investment company incorporated on May 9, 1991. On March 28, 1995, the Company was registered with the SEC under the Investment Company Act of 1960 or Republic Act No. 2629 (the ‘Investment Company Act’). In November 2002, its shareholders approved the proposal to re-organize the company to provide shareholders with a liquidity vehicle to cash in on their investment. On March 14, 2003, the SEC approved the financial restructuring of the Company. After the requisite ten-day trading suspension, the new Company began trading on March 31. In April, it was reclassified from being an investment company.
The post-restructuring investment objective of the Company is to provide original FFI investors with a repackaged investment which would now have a more responsive net asset value per share which should correspond to an improved share price in the stock exchange.
Filipino Fund, Inc., post-restructuring, is now an ordinary listed corporation in the Philippine Stock Exchange and the maintenance of the residual investment portfolio which is now almost entirely composed of shares in the Philippine Index Fund, an index-tracking equity mutual fund which was created as part of the financial restructuring of the original Filipino Fund.
