Wells Fargo Adds New Share Class to Two Funds

News summary by MFWire's editors

Wells Fargo Funds Management has launched a new share class of its Wells Fargo Advantage Heritage Money Market Fund and Wells Fargo Advantage Cash Investment Money Market Fund. The new Select Class shares are offered to institutional investors who make an initial money market investment of $50 million or more. In return for their investment, the Select Class shares charge a net expense ratio of 13 bps.


Wells Fargo Funds Management, LLC, one of the 15th largest providers of money market mutual funds and the nation's 18th-largest mutual fund firm has launched a new Select share class of its Wells Fargo Advantage Heritage Money Market Fund(SM) and Wells Fargo Advantage Cash Investment Money Market Fund.

The Select Class shares are offered to institutional investors who make an initial money market investment of $50 million or more. In return for their investment, the Select Class shares charge a net expense ratio of 0.13%.

"We believe these new lower-priced Select Class shares should appeal to large corporate and institutional investors whose cash investments have risen to unprecedented levels in recent years," said portfolio manager David Sylvester. "The new shares, combined with our conservative and highly disciplined approach to investing, make both of these Funds competitive, high-quality alternatives to individual short-term liquidity instruments."

The new share class, along with the existing share classes of the two funds, will be managed by Sylvester, portfolio manager and head of Wells Capital Management's money market team. He manages more than $85 billion in money market assets across the Wells Fargo Advantage Funds(R) family and has more than 32 years experience in managing fixed-income portfolios and short-term investments.

"Select shares aim to serve the growing number of large institutional investors who favor pricing that allows them to increase yield potential on their investments." said Brad Marcus, senior vice president of Wells Fargo Funds Management, "The launch of Select Class shares demonstrates our commitment to the institutional marketplace and to providing investment solutions with appropriate pricing."
