The risk and reward category shown is based on historic data.

  • The higher the category, the greater the potential reward, but also the greater the risk of losing the investment. Category 1 does not indicate a risk free investment.
  • The fund is in this category because it invests in money market securities and the fund's simulated and/or realised return has experienced low rises and falls historically.
This rating does not take into account other risk factors which should be considered before investing, these include:
  • The value of bonds are likely to decrease if interest rates rise and vice versa.
  • Issuers may not be able to repay their debts, if this happens the value of your investment will decrease. This risk is higher where the fund invests in a bond with a lower credit rating.
  • The fund relies on other parties to fulfill certain services, investments or transactions. If these parties become insolvent, it may expose the fund to financial loss.
  • While it is intended that the distributing share classes will maintain a share price of €1, this may not be achieved due to the creditworthiness of the issuers of investments held or changes in interest rates.
  • Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. The value of investments and the income from them can go down as well as up and investors may lose all or a substantial portion of his or her investment.

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future results. 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.  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.

THE CURRENT NET NEGATIVE YIELD RETURN: Please be advised that as of 6 May 2015, the Euro Liquidity Fund, a sub-fund of Morgan Stanley Liquidity Funds, began returning a negative net yield. In accordance with the fund’s procedures for operating in a net negative yield environment, which are noted in the fund’s prospectus, the distributing share class of the fund will reduce the number of shares held by shareholders on pro rata basis each day in order for the fund to seek to maintain a constant net asset value.

IMPORTANT RATINGS DISCLOSURES

Ratings represent the opinions of the rating agency as to the quality of the securities they rate. Standard & Poor's, Moody's, Fitch and NAIC ratings rate the investment quality of the fund's shares. Independent rating agency ratings include, but are not limited to, a regular analysis of a fund's liquidity, diversification, operational policies and internal controls, its management characteristics and the creditworthiness of its assets.

Ratings are not intended as a recommendation and are subject to change. Ratings are relative and subjective and are not absolute standards of quality. The portfolio's credit quality does not remove market risk.

Fitch Rating's money market fund ratings are an opinion as to the capacity of a money market fund to preserve principal and provide shareholder liquidity. Money market fund ratings are distinguished from the long-term credit-rating scale by the ‘mmf’ rating subscript and range from ‘AAAmmf’ to ‘Bmmf’. For more information, please visit: http://www.fitchratings.com/creditdesk /public/ratings_defintions/index.cfm. Moody's Investors Services Inc.'s money market fund ratings are opinions of the investment quality of shares in mutual funds and similar investment vehicles which principally invest in short-term fixed income obligations. As such, these ratings incorporate Moody's assessment of a fund's published investment objectives and policies, the creditworthiness of the assets held by the fund, the liquidity profile of the fund's assets relative to the fund's investor base, the assets' susceptibility to market risk, as well as the management characteristics of the fund. For more information, please visit: http://v3.moodys.com/ researchdocumentcontentpage.aspx?docid=PBC_79004. Standard & Poor's money market fund ratings are forward-looking opinions about a fixed-income fund's capacity to maintain stable principal (net asset value). When assigning a principal stability rating to a fund, Standard & Poor's analysis focuses primarily on the creditworthiness of the fund's investments and counterparties, and also its investments maturity structure and management's ability and policies to maintain the fund's stable net asset value. For more information, please visit: http://www.understandingratings.com. The Institutional Money Market Funds Association (IMMFA) funds are European money market funds triple-A rated by one or more of the ratings agencies such as Fitch Ratings, Standard & Poor's and Moody's Investor Service to ensure continued compliance with rating criteria. Only this type of fund is awarded the lowest susceptibility to interest-rate volatility. For complete information on the methodology used by IMMFA please visit: http://www.immfa.org

One Month Euro LIBID Index - 1 month London Interbank Bid Rate - The average interest rate which major London banks borrow Eurocurrency deposits from other banks.

Euro Overnight Index Average (EONIA) – the standard interest rate at which banks provide loans to each other with a duration of 1 day within the Eurozone.

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.
