Fidelity Claims Money Market Fund Yields Separated By Widest Ever Margin

The best and worst performing sterling money market funds are now separated by over 0.8%, a margin that has doubled in just two months, according to Fidelity International. It suggests that, with such a wide range of yields on offer, investors should look for security and liquidity before the potential returns on offer. Kevin Thompson, managing director of Fidelity’s Institutional Cash Fund, says: “This range of yields is unusually wide and shows that some fund managers are better than others at getting the best deal on money market securities. However, the golden rule for investors in money market funds should be security first, liquidity second and then yield in excess of bank deposits a close third.”
