Money Market Funds

For banks, insurance companies and large investment institutions, money market funds are the most popular choice when it comes to placing liquid cash. These funds invest in high grade very short dated bonds (maturing in weeks or months) and offer underlying returns of close to 4% per annum currently. They are also extremely liquid and can be sold and converted to cash very quickly (daily tradeable).Two such opportunities are as follows:
