Why Invest In This Fund

For Short-Term Investment

Stock and bond funds should, in general, be viewed as long-term investments. So where can you invest the money you might need in three to six months, if not sooner? Traditionally most financial advisors recommend putting aside a minimum of three months of living expenses in a short-term, liquid investment, such as a money market fund.

Alternative to Savings Account and CDs

Money market funds strive to provide many of the same benefits as savings accounts and CDs. But with the assumption of slightly more risk, they attempt to provide a higher yield. Money market funds generally seek to offer:

  • Current income
  • Liquidity
  • Price stability
  • Of course, unlike CDs and bank savings accounts, money market fund shares are not guaranteed as to repayment of principal and interest, and they do not offer a fixed rate of return.

    An investment in the PIMCO Government Money Market Fund is not insured nor guaranteed by the FDIC or any other government agency. Although the Fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in the Fund.
