PIMCO Government Money Market Fund

Money Market funds are not insured or guaranteed by FDIC or any other government agency and although such funds seek to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in Money Market funds.  If there is a material difference between the quoted total return and the quoted current yield, the yield quotation more closely reflects the current earnings of the portfolio than the total return quotation. Yields computed by SEC-prescribed calculations and are subject to change.

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.

A word about risk:
Investing in the bond market is subject to certain risks including market, interest-rate, issuer, credit, and inflation risk. Certain U.S. Government securities are backed by the full faith of the government, obligations of U.S. Government agencies and authorities are supported by varying degrees but are generally not backed by the full faith of the U.S. Government; portfolios that invest in such securities are not guaranteed and will fluctuate in value.

Past performance is not a guarantee or a reliable indicator of future results. For funds with at least a 3-yr history, Morningstar calculates a Morningstar Rating based on a risk-adjusted return measure that accounts for variation in a fund’s monthly performance (including the effects of sales charges, loads and redemption fees) with an emphasis on downward variations and consistent performance. The top 10% of funds in each category receive 5 stars, the next 22.5% receive 4 stars, the next 35% receive 3 stars, the next 22.5% receive 2 stars and the bottom 10% receive 1 star. The Overall Morningstar Rating is a weighted average of the performance figures for its 3-, 5- and 10-yr (if applicable) Morningstar Rating metrics. Morningstar, Inc.® 2015. All rights reserved.

For the period prior to the inception date of these shares, performance information is based on the performance of the fund’s Institutional Class shares, adjusted to reflect the actual distribution and/or service (12b-1) fees and other expenses paid by the newer share class.
