Why was this fund chosen?

This fund aims to preserve the value of your investments. The fund is predominantly invested in cash and cash equivalents. At least 80% will be invested in eligible instruments such as cash, time deposits, certificates of deposit, commercial paper, floating-rate notes, and short-dated government bonds.

Details of the past performance of this fund can be found on our factsheet. The factsheet includes details on how the fund is benchmarked, and charts showing the historical price and total return of the fund over time periods up to the last 5 years.

Things to consider

The major risk is that inflation will erode the purchasing power of your investment, leaving you able to buy less in the future. Past performance is not an indicator of what may happen in future.

The ongoing charges figure (OCF) is 0.1%. This represents some of the fees which the fund manager will take for running the fund.

IMPORTANT: The OCF does not include some other Fund Manager operating costs and charges, including Fund Manager transaction costs and performance fees.
