The fund portfolio also features global manufacturers of medical devices such as Boston Scientific, and renowned healthcare companies such as UnitedHealth Group.
 
Meanwhile, the BPI Invest World Technology Feeder Fund is BPI AMTC’s first technology-focused fund that invests in today’s leaders and tomorrow’s winners in the technology space. Its February 2021 portfolio includes household tech names such as Apple, Microsoft, Tesla, Amazon, and PayPal.
 
As a feeder fund, BPI Invest World Technology Feeder Fund allocates at least 90% of its assets in BlackRock’s World Technology Fund. BlackRock is the world’s largest asset manager as of January 2021, with over $8T assets under management. By subscribing to this BPI Invest fund, Filipino investors can gain access to a sector known for innovation and disruption, presenting rich opportunities for active fund managers to select favorable investment outlets.
