The May issue of the Association for Financial Professionals' AFP Exchange features the story, "How New MMF Rules May Impact Delta's Cash Portfolio," a Q&A with Barbara Quiroga, director of cash operations for Delta Air Lines. AFP asks, "What potential impact do you see the new regulations having on your cash portfolio at Delta?" Quiroga answers, "Delta has relied heavily on MMFs for its operational daily cash investments. We have already seen some funds closing/selling their funds (Reich & Tang) or changing their strategy (Fidelity) that had an impact on our operational cash investments. Delta will have to assess if prime MMFs will still be the optimal investment vehicle for operational cash after all regulatory changes are implemented and we have a better understanding of how the daily investments or redemptions will work." We also preview this week's New York Cash Exchange conference, which features a number of sessions on cash investments, including our Peter Crane's "Money Fund Rates & Regulations Roundtable," which takes place Wednesday at 9:00am at the New York Hilton.
