Fund highlights

    • Focuses primarily on preserving capital and maintaining a high level of liquidity by actively managing a diversified portfolio of short-term U.S. government debt and repurchase agreements collateralized by U.S. government obligations, which will likely generate higher yields than a portfolio that invests exclusively in U.S. Treasury debt.
    • Purchases only debt issued by the U.S. Treasury or U.S. government agencies across a range of eligible money market investments that may include, but are not limited to, government agency repurchase agreements, government agency debt, U.S. Treasury repurchase agreements, U.S. Treasury debt, and other securities collateralized by U.S. government obligations.
    • 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 10 portfolio managers and traders, supported by 11 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.

    Historical Form N-MFP Filings

    For government money market funds: You could lose money by investing in the fund. Although the fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it cannot guarantee it will do so. An investment in the fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. 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.

    Weighted average maturity (WAM): An average of the effective maturities of all securities held in the portfolio, weighted by each security's percentage of total investments. The maturity of a portfolio security is the period remaining until the date on which the principal amount is unconditionally required to be paid, or in the case of a security called for redemption, the date on which the redemption payment is unconditionally required to be made. WAM calculations allow for the maturities of certain securities with demand features or periodic interest-rate resets to be shortened. WAM is a way to measure a fund's sensitivity to potential interest-rate changes. WAM is subject to change and may have changed since the date specified.

    Weighted average life (WAL): An average of the final maturities of all securities held in the portfolio, weighted by their percentage of total investments. The maturity of a portfolio security is the period remaining until the date on which the principal amount is unconditionally required to be paid, or in the case of a security called for redemption, the date on which the redemption payment is unconditionally required to be made. The calculation of WAL allows for the maturities of certain securities with demand features to be shortened but, unlike the calculation of WAM, does not allow shortening of the maturities of certain securities with periodic interest-rate resets. WAL is a way to measure a fund's potential sensitivity to credit spread changes. WAL is subject to change and may have changed since the date specified.
