Investment Approach

While seeking to maximize current income, our investment management team emphasizes credit quality, liquidity and appropriate diversification. The Fund is a "feeder fund" that invests in securities through an underlying "master fund." The master fund invests in a diversified portfolio of high-quality, short-term, US dollar-denominated money market instruments of governmental and private issuers. Our credit and portfolio management teams continually monitor individual issuers in an attempt to assure maintenance of credit quality.
