Money Markets funds are low- risk short-term mutual investment schemes using instruments such as Securities, Cash and Cash equivalents. All Money Markets Funds Managers must be regulated by The Capital Market Authority.

Money Markets funds are ideal for investors who want to preserve their capital for a short period of time while earning some interest as they buy time for future investments.

Professional Fund Management- as the fund is managed by investment experts

Diversification- With a relatively small investment, investment in a money market fund provides access to a broad spread of securities thus minimizes financial risk

Accessibility- the money market fund is liquid and easily accessible, meaning you can withdraw funds at short notice

Safety- the fund is regulated by the Capital Markets Authority and is also overseen by a dedicated trustee and custodian whose role is to ensure that the fund manager acts in the investors’ best interest and conforms to best practice
