Company Description
Filipino Fund, Inc. (FFI) was originally incorporated on May 9, 1991 as a closed-end investment company. FFI was registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on March 28, 1995. In November 2002, FFI's shareholders approved the proposal to re-organize the Company, which will provide shareholders with a liquidity vehicle to cash in on their investment. On March of the following year, the SEC approved the said financial restructuring of FFI.

In September 2003, Vicsal Development Corporation (VDC), a holding company of the Metro Gaisano group, acquired 70.42% FFI’s total issued and outstanding shares. VDC still remains the majority shareholder of FFI as of end-2016.

FFI’s services include investments in equities and unit investment trust funds. There are no distribution methods adopted by FFI as it does not deal or trade in goods or products.
