The investment objective of the Phillip Money Market Fund is to aim to preserve principal value and maintain a high degree of liquidity while producing returns comparable to that of Singapore dollar savings deposits. The Sub-Fund will invest primarily in short term, high quality money market instruments and debt securities. Such investments may include government and corporate bonds, commercial bills and deposits with financial institutions.
The Sub-Fund’s approach to enhancing returns is to diversify across deposits of varying tenure. The Managers believe that the use of other short term, high quality money market instruments and debt securities, which are normally available to large investors will also help to enhance returns for the investor.
Subject to the provisions of the Code on Collective Investment Schemes issued by the MAS (“Code”), the Managers may also invest the deposited property of the Sub-Fund into a maximum of 3 money market funds which are authorised or recognised by MAS and which are also classified as Excluded Investment Products,including money market funds managed by the Managers during such time or times and on such terms as the Managers think fit in accordance with the investment objective and focus of the Sub-Fund. Up to 10% of the net asset value of the Sub-Fund may be invested into each money market fund. The management fees charged by the money market funds managed by the Managers will be rebated to the Sub-Fund, as may be agreed between the Managers and the Trustee.
The Managers may only use financial derivative instruments (“FDIs”) for such purposes as may be permitted under the Code and subject to compliance with the limits and/or restrictions (if any) applicable to Excluded Investment Products.
