About the Fund
The Florida Education Investment Trust Fund ("the Fund") or ("FEITF") is a common law trust organized under the laws of The State of Florida and is designed to meet the cash management and short- term investment needs of school districts, political subdivisions of the State or instrumentalities of political subdivisions of the State. The Florida School Boards Association and The Florida Association of District School Superintendents sponsor the Fund. The Fund's investment objective is to provide Participants with the highest possible investment yield, while maintaining liquidity and preserving capital.
Preservation of Principal
Participants in the Fund have one investment option, intended to assist Participants in preserving the principal value of their investments. The Fund seeks to maintain a stable net asset value of $1.00 per share. (Please see the Fund Information Statement for a more complete description of the Fund's investment objectives and policies.)
The FEITF provides daily liquidity to Participants on any business day. Investments in the Fund may be made on any business day until 2 p.m. Eastern Time and all or any portion of such investments may be withdrawn on any business day until 2 p.m. Eastern Time.
The Fund seeks to provide Participants with as high a rate of current income as the Fund Investment Adviser believes is consistent with preserving principal and maintaining liquidity.
The Fund offers the advantages of investment by same day wire or next day transfer. Participants can use the Internet to check account balances and activity and initiate transactions.
While FEITF seeks to maintain a stable net asset value of $1.00 per share, it is possible to lose money investing in the Fund.
