Fund Features

  • Assigned highest credit ratings by Standard & Poor's, Moody's, and Fitch.
  • The use of repurchase agreements provides a high degree of liquidity.
  • The combination of Treasury securities and Treasury repurchase agreements offers the potential for higher yields than a portfolio comprised exclusively of Treasury securities, although repurchase agreements present some additional risk to the fund.

*Repurchase agreements are subject to the risk that the seller will default on its obligation to repurchase the securities, which could result in a loss to the fund.
