The Money Market Fund And Bruce Bent II

Money market funds provide individuals with a new way to manage thier cash. Instead of investing in bonds, or certificates of deposit, an individual or business can chose to keep their money in a money market fund. The funds are highly liquid; there are no fees or penalties for removing money from a money market fund. In this way, they can be an excellent alternative to a traditional bank account for storing and saving your cash. Money market funds invest your money in a low-list, often low-yield situation. Money markets were first founded in 1971.
