Everyone who invests in the fund owns certificates issued by this fund. These certificates give everyone the same mix of investments in the same proportion. As the value of the fund as a whole rises or falls, each person’s certificate value will go up and down with it.
You can invest in the fund and own more certificates daily and you can redeem these certificates every week, every Monday to be specific at their new price.
Note: Redemption requests are received every day, but executed on Mondays with proceed being sent the following Tuesday
AZ Savings can be exposed to various types of risk like interest rate risk, credit risk for corporate bonds as well as liquidity risk. The fund manager typically manages these types of risks by diversifying the investments of the fund across different asset classes and maturity ladders that match the liquidity and nature of money inside the fund. The fund manager also sets a max exposure to a single issuer and related parties.
