Fidelity sells off short-term US government debt



NEW YORK — The nation's largest manager of money market mutual funds said today that it no longer holds any U.S. government debt that comes due around the time the nation could hit its borrowing limit.
Portfolio managers at Fidelity Investments have been selling off their government debt holdings over the last couple of weeks, said Nancy Prior, president of Fidelity's Money Market Group. While Fidelity expects the debt ceiling issue to be resolved, the Boston-based asset manager said it is taking steps to protect investors.
Prior said that Fidelity no longer holds any U.S. debt that comes due in late October or early November, the window considered by many investors to be the most exposed if the government runs out of money and defaults on its obligations.
