THE FUND | The 100% Treasury Money Market Fund seeks current income exempt from most state and local individual income taxes, while preserving capital and liquidity.
Focuses primarily on preserving capital and maintaining a high level of liquidity by actively managing a portfolio that consists exclusively of high-quality, short-term money market instruments issued by the U.S. Treasury.
Uses a conservative investment approach that emphasizes fundamental credit research, portfolio analytics, and portfolio risk management.
Portfolio management team: A tenured and broad-based portfolio management team of 12 portfolio managers and traders, supported by 14 dedicated credit analysts, applies a well-defined investment process that has evolved over a period of more than 20 years–since the team's founding and the inception of the funds.
Integrated, forward-looking credit analysis process: The team obtains an understanding of the risks associated with every issue considered for investment by thoroughly examining each issue's financial stability, its legal and structural situation, and the general credit and economic environment at any point in time. The credit analysis process is a repeatable, collaborative effort in which each issue is assigned a credit score by a primary analyst and is subsequently reviewed by a secondary analyst and credit committee before being approved for investment.
Disciplined risk management: The team uses proprietary risk models, which include both quantitative and qualitative factors, to identify investment opportunities and manage key risks.
Portfolio construction and ongoing monitoring: The team's highest priority is the preservation of capital and liquidity. To meet these objectives, the team relies on its credit analysis process and risk management and continuously performs stress tests on each portfolio to evaluate how the funds may react to market disruptions.
RISKS | An investment in a money market fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. Although the Fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in a money market fund.
The U.S. Government guarantee applies to certain of the underlying securities and NOT to shares of the Fund.
