Strategy, Benefits, Results


  • The fund invests in U.S. government securities, which may include fixed, floating and variable rate securities, as well as repurchase agreements collateralized fully by U.S. government securities or cash.
  • We only buy securities we believe present minimal credit risks.
  • We maintain a dollar-weighted average portfolio maturity of 60 days or less.


Investing In The Fund

What Are the Risks?

  • Mutual fund shares are not deposits or obligations of, or guaranteed or endorsed by, any bank, and are not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation, the Federal Reserve Board, or any other agency of the U.S. government.
  • 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 the fund. The fund’s sponsor has no legal obligation to provide financial support to the fund, and you should not expect that the sponsor will provide financial support to the fund at any time.
  • These and other risk considerations are discussed in the fund’s prospectus.
