money market instruments


Financial instruments issued by financial institutions or governments, such as certificates of deposit (CD's) and treasury bills, that are considered to be extremely low-risk. These instruments tend to have lower returns than higher-risk investments, but are much safer due to being backed by the resources and reputation of an institution, state, or sovereign.
