The Daily Income Fund (HDIXX) is a money market fund. It carries the lowest risk of all the Homestead Funds and is suitable for conservative investors. The fund’s share price is expected — although not guaranteed — to remain constant at $1.00. The level of dividend income earned will fluctuate with changes in short-term interest rates.
The fund invests in debt securities that are obligations of the U.S. government, its agencies and instrumentalities and accordingly are backed by the full faith and credit of the United States (e.g., U.S. Treasury bills) or by the credit of a federal agency or government-sponsored entity (e.g., FannieMae and Freddie Mac mortgage-backed bonds).
