IMET Core Fund

The IMET Core Fund (formerly known as the 1-3 Year Fund) is designed for public funds that may be invested for longer than one year. Although the Core Fund is designed for funds that may be invested for a year or longer, there is no minimum investment term and there are no 'early' withdrawal/redemption fees or penalties for funds invested for less than one year.

The Core Fund provides next day liquidity; participants are able to redeem investment shares next day as long as IMET is notified by 3:00 PM CT. The Core Fund has a fluctuating net asset value (NAV) and an average portfolio maturity of 1 to 3 years. The Core Fund is invested primarily in U.S. government backed securities (Treasuries and Agencies). Due to its investment policy, objectives and constraints, the IMET Core Fund Series carries the highest rating by Moody's, Aaa/bf.
