Post-reforms, the money market fund industry will certainly look different than it does now. In a recent webinar called "Investment Policy Decisions and Amendments, Post Money Fund Reform," a panel of experts discussed what some of those changes might look like. The webinar was hosted by StoneCastle Cash Management with support from Fitch Ratings, PIMCO, and iTreasurer. It was moderated by Ted Howard, managing editor, iTreasurer, and featured presentations by Roger Merritt, Managing Director, and Greg Fayvilevich, Director, Fitch Ratings; Brandon Semilof, Managing Director, StoneCastle; and Brian Leach, Product Manager, PIMCO. We review the webinar below, and we also mention some recent merger and consolidation news. (Note: Monday, Oct. 27 is also the deadline for comments on the Treasury and IRS's Proposed Rule, "Money Market Funds: Method of Accounting for Gains and Losses on Shares and Broker Returns with Respect to Sales of Shares," which accompanied the SEC's recent Money Fund Reforms. See our July 30 News, "Reform Floating NAV Accounting Issues Addressed by Treasury Proposal". No comments have been posted to date, but we will review these if and when they are released.)
