Strategic Short-Term Fund

  • Vehicle Mutual Fund
  • Asset Class Fixed Income


The GMO Strategic Short-Term Fund seeks total return in excess of that of the FTSE 3-Month Treasury Bill Index consistent with capital preservation and daily liquidity. U.S.-dollar denominated with ultra-short duration, the Fund seeks to outperform cash investments with low volatility, offering an alternative approach for money market investors who seek additional return over money market funds while maintaining capital preservation, daily liquidity, and low interest rate risk.

GMO’s Short Duration Strategies team looks for relative value opportunities in U.S. and non-U.S. government bonds and agencies (currency-hedged). We use a bottom-up trading strategy to construct a portfolio of high quality securities that seek to meet our safety, liquidity, and return objectives.
