Investment Approach

The Morgan Stanley Institutional Liquidity Funds (MSILF) Government Securities Portfolio seeks preservation of capital, daily liquidity, and maximum current income.

Investment Philosophy
We believe that a conservatively managed portfolio of debt securities issued by the U.S. government and Treasury can maximize current income while preserving capital and maintaining liquidity.
Investment Process
The management team follows an investment process that seeks to select maturities based on the shape of the money market fund yield curve and on expectations as to future shifts in the level and shape of the curve, taking into consideration such factors as current short-term interest rates, Federal Reserve policy regarding interest rates and U.S. economic activity.

Where the net expense ratio is lower than the gross expense ratio, certain fees have been waived and/or expenses reimbursed. These waivers and/or reimbursements will continue for at least one year from the date of the applicable fund’s current prospectus (unless otherwise noted in the applicable prospectus) or until such time as the fund's Board of Directors /Trustees acts to discontinue all or a portion of such waivers and/or reimbursements. Absent such waivers and/or reimbursements, returns would have been lower. Expenses are based on the fund's current prospectus.

You could lose money by investing in the Fund. Although the Fund seeks to preserve the value of your investment at $1.00 per share, it cannot guarantee it will do so. An investment in the Fund is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. The Funds’ sponsor has no legal obligation to provide financial support to the Fund, and you should not expect that the sponsor will provide financial support to the Fund at any time.

Total assets used in the calculation of Daily Liquid Assets and Weekly Liquid Assets may include interest receivables as well as other assets, like prepaid expenses. If these interest receivables and other assets were not reflected, the Daily Liquid Assets and/or Weekly Liquid Assets would be higher.

Ratings represent the opinions of the rating agency as to the quality of the securities they rate. Standard & Poor's, Moody's and Fitch 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 relative and subjective and are not absolute standards of quality. Ratings are not intended as a recommendation and are subject to change.

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.

Subsidized (Sub.) reflects current fee waivers in effect. Absent such fee waivers, the yield would have been lower. The Unsubsidized (Unsub.) does not reflect the fee waivers currently in effect. Current yield is a measure that looks at the current price of a bond instead of its face value and represents the return an investor would expect if he or she purchased the bond and held it for a year. Calculated by dividing the Annual Cash Inflows / Market Price. The 7-day effective yields are annualized net yields that describe 1-year earnings assuming dividends are reinvested at the average rate of the last 7 days.

SEC 30-day yield is a measure of the income generated by the portfolio's underlying asset over the trailing 30 days, relative to the asset base of the portfolio itself. The SEC 30-day yield - Subsidized (Sub.) reflects current fee waivers in effect. Absent such fee waivers, the yield would have been lower. The SEC 30-Day yield - Un-Subsidized (Un-Sub.) does not reflect the fee waivers currently in effect.

Weighted average maturity (WAM) – measures the weighted average of the maturities of the portfolio's individual holdings, taking into account reset dates for floating rate securities.
