Performance data quoted is based on average annualized returns and net of fee

Past performance is not a guarantee of future performance. The value of the investments and the income from them can go down as well as up and an investor may not get back the amount invested. Returns may increase or decrease as a result of currency fluctuations. Performance data for funds with less than one year's track record is not shown. Performance is calculated net of fees. YTD performance data is not annualised. Performance of other share classes, when offered, may differ. Please consider the investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses of the fund carefully before investing. The prospectus and key investor information document (KIID) contains this and other information about the fund. Please read the prospectus and KIID carefully before you invest.

Past performance should not be construed as a guarantee of future performance. Calculations are NAV to NAV. Performance of the Morgan Stanley Liquidity Funds is calculated net of fees.

It is important you read the legal information page before proceeding as it explains in which countries the Morgan Stanley Liquidity Funds are authorised for sale and where this website is directed.

Net Asset Value (NAV) is the dollar value of a single mutual fund share based on the value of the underlying assets of the fund minus its liabilities, divided by the number of shares outstanding. It is calculated at the end of each business day. The Fund transacts at a constant €1/$1/£1.

The 1-day and 7-day current yield is an annualized net yield which assumes dividends are not reinvested in the fund. The 30-day current yields are annualized net yields that describe 1-year earnings assuming dividends are reinvested at the average rate of the last 30 days.

The Ongoing Charges Figure (“OCF”) reflects the payments and expenses which cover aspects of operating the fund and is deducted from the assets over the period. It includes fees paid for investment management, trustee/custodian, and administration charges.

Total expenses ("TER") charged to the share class for the current reporting month, calculated net of any waivers and expressed as an annualised percentage of average net assets for the month.

WAM is the weighted average maturity of the portfolio. The WAM calculation utilizes the interest-rate reset date, rather than a security's stated final maturity, for variable- and floating- rate securities. By looking to a portfolio's interest rate reset schedule in lieu of final maturity dates, the WAM measure effectively captures a fund's exposure to interest rate movements and the potential price impact resulting from interest rate movements.

WAL is the weighted average life of the portfolio. The WAL calculation utilizes a security's stated final maturity date or, when relevant, the date of the next demand feature when the fund may receive payment of principal and interest (such as a put feature). Accordingly, WAL reflects how a portfolio would react to deteriorating credit (widening spreads) or tightening liquidity conditions.

‘Fund launch date’ refers to the launch of Morgan Stanley Funds p.l.c. US Dollar Liquidity Fund, which merged into Morgan Stanley Liquidity Funds on June 17, 2013

The Morgan Stanley Investment Funds - US Dollar Liquidity Fund became a feeder fund in to the Morgan Stanley Liquidity Funds - US Dollar Liquidity Fund on September 9, 2013.
