A Tiered Approach to Your Cash Needs

Solid planning within a tiered framework can help achieve your objectives

Dreyfus Cash Management Solutions Comparison offers a diverse set of products that may improve income and/or return potential across the spectrum of available cash pools – and with a lower risk profile than might be expected. By creating an account plan using a “tiered” investment strategy, we can help break down your inventory of cash to provide the necessary liquidity and income potential for your overall portfolio.

Operating, Core and Strategic Cash

Structure your inventory of cash with a range of products from those designed for ready liquidity to those with moderate maturity extension that pursue higher yields, to ones with investment grade credit quality for a long-term horizon (up to a 3-year duration).

An investment in any money market is not insured or guaranteed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation or any other government agency. Past performance is no guarantee of future results.

Diversification and asset allocation do not ensure a profit or protect against loss. 

Unlike money market funds, short duration and stable value portfolios do not seek to maintain a fixed share price or unit value, and involve higher principal risk. Short-term corporate, asset-backed and municipal securities holdings involve credit and liquidity risks and risk of principal loss.
