Fund Ranges and Tailored Solutions
All of our money market funds aim to preserve capital and provide liquidity whilst generating appropriate income. However there are important differences:
- Government liquidity funds – designed for investors with a short-term investment horizon seeking the security of exposure only to highly rated governments. These funds are targeted to provide you with returns consistent with short-term government interest rates whilst maintaining a high level of liquidity.
- Global cash funds – developed as a solution for investors who have a short-term investment horizon and uncertain liquidity requirements. The funds invest in high quality, short-term money market instruments to offer investors security and liquidity.
- Strategic money market funds – created for investors with a longer investment horizon – one to six months – and more defined liquidity needs. The funds invest in high quality money market instruments with slightly longer duration. They may offer a yield uplift over money the global cash funds.
- Tailored solutions – created hand-in-hand with you, to respond to your individual investment requirements or longer-term cash objectives.
Conservative Investment Principles
Capital Preservation – Comprehensive risk controls, a consistent and robust investment approach, and an extensive credit review process are fundamental to our investment strategy.
Liquidity Management – the size and scale of Northern Trust Global Investments allows for comprehensive liquidity management
Risk Adjusted Yield – given the focus on capital preservation and liquidity, yield is not a primary concern when selecting a money market fund. If we are developing a customised solution with you we can target the appropriate level of yield based on your risk profile and liquidity needs.
