Unicapital, Inc.’s history may be traced back to the year 1994, when its founders, MAJALCO, Inc. and GMA Network, Inc., entered into a joint venture to form the investment house that subsequently acquired 100% of Unicapital Finance and Investments, Inc. (UFII), the group’s finance company that has been in existence since 1976.
In 1997, the Company further expanded its services to include equity sales and trading through the formation of a majority-owned subsidiary, Unicapital Securities, Inc. (USI), a securities brokerage house licensed by the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and a bona-fide member of the Philippine Stock Exchange.
USI was registered with the Philippine Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and having acquired its membership with the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) on 28 May 1997, it received its securities broker and dealer license from the SEC on 19 June 1997, and commenced actual trading operations with the PSE on 30 July 1997.
