Individuals 09.27.2022 1 MIN

Money market mutual funds—not to be confused with money market savings accounts—are a unique investment vehicle known for their stability. Learn the basics with Mariam Kamshad, Head of Portfolio Strategy for Goldman Sachs Personal Financial Management Group Investments, in this edition of Financial Spotlight.

Key takeaways:

  • Money market funds are a type of fixed-income mutual fund
  • These funds are considered liquid and often have check writing privileges, but are not insured by the FDIC
  • While less susceptible to market volatility than stocks, their performance isn’t guaranteed
