The California Municipal Money Market Fund seeks current income exempt from regular federal income tax and California individual income tax, while preserving capital and liquidity.
- Focuses primarily on preserving capital and maintaining a high level of liquidity by actively managing a diversified portfolio of high-quality, short-term municipal obligations that are issued by or on behalf of states, territories, and possessions of the U.S. or their political subdivisions or financing authorities that are exempt from California state tax.
- Invests in a range of eligible money market instruments that may have fixed, floating, or variable rates of interest, such as variable-rate demand notes. The fund may also invest any amount in potentially higher-yielding securities that pay interest subject to federal AMT.
- Manages the fund in a tax-sensitive manner by investing in municipal obligations that pay interest exempt from regular California individual income tax and regular federal income tax, but not necessarily the federal alternative minimum tax (AMT); non-AMT-sensitive investors may potentially achieve higher, nontaxable income.
- Portfolio management team: A tenured and broad-based portfolio management team of 12 portfolio managers and traders, supported by 14 dedicated credit analysts, applies a well-defined investment process that has evolved over a period of more than 20 years—since the team's founding and the inception of the funds.
- Integrated, forward-looking credit analysis process: The team obtains an understanding of the risks associated with every issue considered for investment by thoroughly examining each issue's financial stability, its legal and structural situation, and the general credit and economic environment at any point in time. The credit analysis process is a repeatable, collaborative effort in which each issue is assigned a credit score by a primary analyst and is subsequently reviewed by a secondary analyst and credit committee before being approved for investment.
- Disciplined risk management: The team uses proprietary risk models, which include both quantitative and qualitative factors, to identify investment opportunities and manage key risks.
- Portfolio construction and ongoing monitoring: The team's highest priority is the preservation of capital and liquidity. To meet these objectives, the team relies on its credit analysis process and risk management and continuously performs stress tests on each portfolio to evaluate how the funds may react to market disruptions.
A portion of the Fund's income may be subject to federal, state and/or local income taxes or the alternative minimum tax (AMT). Any capital gains distributions may be taxable.
