What You Need to Know

7-Day Current Yield

The 7-Day Current Yield is calculated based on the income generated by an investment in the fund over a seven-day period and is expressed as an annual percentage rate.

7-Day Effective Yield

The 7-Day Effective Yield is calculated similarly, although this figure is slightly higher than the fund's 7-Day Current Yield because of the effects of compounding. The 7-Day Effective Yield assumes that income earned from the fund's investments is reinvested and generating additional income.
