What is a fixed-income fund?
Fixed-income funds are funds that invest the money in fixed-income securities such as bonds and commercial papers. When a mutual fund invests in interest rates, it means that it actually invests in loan securities. Examples of fixed-income funds are liquidity funds and bond funds.
The difference between bond and liquidity funds is the term of the fixed-income securities the funds buy. If the mutual fund only owns bonds, the term can be several years. In a liquidity fund, the term is shorter, usually between three months and one year. As the term is longer in bond funds, you must expect slightly higher fluctuations in value than in a liquidity fund.
By saving in liquidity funds and bond funds, you can expect to see slightly higher returns over time than in a bank account. Bond funds normally give slightly higher returns than liquidity funds.
Historical returns are no guarantee of future returns. Future returns will depend, among other things, on market movements, the skill of the Portfolio Manager, the fund’s risk level, as well as administration costs. The return may also be negative as a result of mark-to-market losses.

Daniel Berg explains what interest management is and when it’s suitable for your savings.
Build up a savings buffer or save for unforeseen events with quick access to the money. Liquidity funds are the mutual fund group that carry the lowest risk. This also means the lowest expected return. Over time, you can expect to receive a slightly higher return than a high-yield bank account.
Save money for larger purchases where you do not need immediate access to the money. Bond funds are well suited to savings in the medium term. Bond funds usually provide a slightly higher return than liquidity funds, but more fluctuations in value can be expected.
