The money market fund is similar to bank deposits, even though they attract a higher yield. The main objective of money market funds is to generate high yields through an unlisted managed investment scheme.
In order to get the most out of money market mutual funds, one has to invest in a wider portfolio of high-quality, high liquid, and low-duration money market mutual fund instrument. The idea is to pool various individuals’ savings and invest them in fixed interest products that are not normally available to most investors.
The money market fund managers basically analyze the market trends before investing the funds in term deposits and short-term credible securities that mature within a short period that doesn’t exceed a year. The funds will not only provide higher returns than term deposits, but are also less risky. The money market fund managers offer retail investors access to bonds in the wholesale markets that are usually not open to individuals who are investing small amounts of money.
