The risk and reward category shown is based on historic data.
  • Historic figures are only a guide and may not be a reliable indicator of what may happen in the future.
  • As such this category may change in the future.
  • 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.

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

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.

 
 

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.
