Update on MPF Conservative Fund and ORSO Money Market Funds (13 July 2020)

The outbreak of Covid-19 pandemic has a significant impact on the global economy.  While the US Federal Reserve’s actions to keep interest rates near zero in June, Hong Kong dollar (HKD) money market rates have also been impacted by a number of factors affecting liquidity.

Overall, liquidity yields may remain low compared to last year given the economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and easing policies by global central banks.

The MPF Conservative Fund, and ORSO Money Market Funds generally aim to provide liquidity together with a rate of return higher than the bank savings rate. However, we would like to remind investors that investment in money market funds is different from depositing funds in a savings account at a bank or deposit taking company. These funds are not capital protected, and there is no guarantee that a stable net asset value will be maintained. Investors may not get back the amount originally invested.
