A Prospectus Supplement filing for DWS Government Cash Management Fund explains, "Upon the recommendation of DWS Investment Management Americas, Inc., the investment advisor for DWS Government Cash Management Fund, a feeder fund of Government Cash Management Portfolio, the Board of Trustees of Deutsche DWS Money Market Trust has authorized, on behalf of the fund, the fund's termination and liquidation, which will be effective on or about August 31, 2022. 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."

It continues, "The operational costs of the liquidation, including the notification to shareholders, will be borne by the Advisor. Shareholders who elect to redeem their shares prior to the Liquidation Date will receive the net asset value per share (normally, $1.00) on such redemption date for all shares they redeem. Shareholders whose shares are redeemed automatically on the Liquidation Date will receive the net asset value per share (normally, $1.00) for all shares they own on the Liquidation Date. As the Liquidation Date approaches, the fund's assets not already converted to cash or cash equivalents will be converted to cash or cash equivalents and the fund will not be pursuing its investment objective."

DWS adds, "The fund will be closed to new investors effective immediately. Retirement plans that currently offer the fund as an investment option may continue to offer the fund to their participants until the Liquidation Date and the fund will continue to accept subsequent investments and dividend reinvestments for existing accounts until the Liquidation Date, except that subsequent investments made by check or Automated Clearing House debit entries will no longer be accepted by the fund beginning two weeks prior to the Liquidation Date."

Our June Bond Fund Intelligence publication also recently mentioned the liquidation of DoubleLine Ultra Short Bond Fund. This filing says, "The Board of Trustees of DoubleLine Funds Trust has approved a plan of liquidation for the Fund. The liquidation of the Fund is expected to take place on or about July 29, 2022. Effective after the close of business on June 14, 2022, the Fund's shares will no longer be available for purchase by new investors or existing investors (other than qualified plans). Dividend reinvestments (where applicable) will continue until the Liquidation Date."

Again (6/2/22); "Delaware Pauses Cash Liquidation" (11/1/21); "Delaware Ivy Cash Funds Liquidating" (10/4/21); "AIG Govt MMF, MuniFund Liquidate (8/3/21), "Western Files to Liquidate Tiny MMFs (6/7/21), "BlackRock Liquidates Ready Assets (2/11/21), "Delaware Liquidates Govt Cash Mgmt" (1/11/21); "DWS Liquidating Govt CR (BIRXX)" (11/25/20); "BMO Liquidating Inst Prime MMF" (11/17/20); "Morgan Stanley NY Muni MM Gone" (10/5/20); "SEC's Blass on Push for More MMF Reforms; Vanguard Liquidating PA, NJ" (9/28/20) and "Franklin, Legg Mason Deal Signals More Consolidation; More Liquidations (2/20/20).
