Our institutional cash management group offers cash management strategies in the form of individual bond ladders, money market funds and a bank deposit program. An investment in a money market fund is neither insured nor guaranteed by the FDIC or any other government agency. Although money market funds seek to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money by investing in these funds. Investors should consider the investment objective, risks, charges, and expenses carefully before investing. The prospectuses for the funds contain important information should be read carefully before investing.
Money market funds typically bear ongoing fees and expenses, including, but not limited to, management fees, 12-b1 fees, shareholder services fees, and other expenses. These fees and expenses are deducted from the fund’s assets and reduce investment returns.
The bank deposit program is a solicitation agreement between MSEC, LLC and StoneCastle Cash Management, LLC offering FDIC insurance coverage on up to $25 million. Funds for the bank deposit program are custodied at participating banks.
