What is a money market fund?
A money market fund is a low-risk investment that gives you a place to hold rather than grow your savings, while aiming to give you a slightly higher return than cash.
Instead of investing in bonds or shares, like most funds, it invests in short-term debt. For example, our Vanguard Sterling Short-Term Money Market Fund buys short-term debt from governments, banks and companies with strong balance sheets and high credit ratings. This then pays a small return as interest.
This makes a money market fund a stable, low-risk investment because the short timeframes mean there’s less uncertainty. And it’s also more diversified than holding cash at one bank.
Why invest in a money market fund?
Because it's low risk, a money market fund can be a good place to park your money. There are a few reasons why you might find that useful as an investor.
Perhaps you're not sure what to invest in yet and need somewhere to keep your cash until you decide. Or maybe you're planning on spending your savings soon.
Even though a money market fund Is a low-risk investment, it's still an investment. It could go down in value and you could get back less than you put in.
