Money Market News


A new Prospectus Supplement filing for the $505 million "DWS ESG Liquidity Fund" tells us, "Upon the recommendation of DWS Investment Management Americas, Inc., the investment advisor for DWS ESG Liquidity Fund, the Board of Trustees of Investors Cash Trust has authorized, on behalf of the fund, the fund's termination and liquidation, which will be effective on or about August 14, 2024. Accordingly, the fund will redeem all of its outstanding shares on the Liquidation Date. The liquidation will be effected according to a Plan of Liquidation and Termination. The costs of the liquidation, including the mailing of notification to shareholders, will be borne by the fund but reimbursed by the Advisor, after taking into account applicable contractual expense caps then in effect by the Advisor to waive or reimburse certain operating expenses of the fund." This most recent notice makes DWS ESG the 7th Prime Institutional fund tracked by Crane Data to announce either its liquidation or conversion to a Government fund.
