• Are mutual funds which invest in short-term instruments such as treasury bills, commercial paper, and asset backed securities (ABS). Broadly defined, these investments have maturities, and for some, durations less than a year. Often, these funds try to keep the average maturity or quantitative duration within 2-3 months. Also, these funds try to maintain a net asset value (NAV) of $1 per share. However, this price level is not guaranteed and there have been cases where it was broken. In the latter case, it is known as breaking a buck.
