Frequently asked

Questions a curious person might ask

Are there fees?

The rate shown (3.67% AER) is what you get after the fee of 0.25%, compounded monthly over a year. The fund’s current 1-day yield is 3.86%.

3.86% - 0.25% fees = 3.61% (3.67% when compounded).

What is a Money Market Fund?

A Money Market Fund is a low-risk investment that aims to give you a slightly higher return than cash. Unlike most funds that invest in bonds or shares, it invests in short-term debt.

This short-term debt is bought from by governments, banks and companies with strong balance sheets and high credit ratings. In exchange, they pay interest to the fund.

Lightyear Vaults allows you to invest in Money Market Funds. As with all investments, the value can go up as well as down. The yield generated by these funds changes daily and may also move in an unfavourable direction.

The prospectuses and Key Information Documents of these funds are available in our app and website, and on BlackRock’s website.
