Reserve Funds can be either Stabilization Funds or Savings Funds. Stabilization funds are often established to minimize the volatility of government income and to mitigate the negative effects of boom-bust cycles on government expenditures and the state economy.

This entails the management of employee gratuity or loyalty programmes in order to ensure accountability and transparency. The Trustee administers the account on behalf of the client and invests the funds in line with the Trust Deed. When an employee resigns or retires, the Trustee deposits the employee's gratuity straight into his or her account. The Trustee also gives the customer a quarterly report on the administration of the gratuity funds.
