Money market mutual fund assets jumped in July for the third month in a row, recording their strongest two-month period in a decade, while funds continue to shorten their WAMs, or weighted average maturities in preparation for a rate hike by the Federal Reserve. Below, we review out preliminary July numbers and ICI's latest "Trends in Mutual Fund Investing" for June, which shows that total money fund assets increased by $12.9 billion, or 0.5%, to $2.616 trillion last month. June was the second straight month that assets increased, and the first time MMF assets have gone up in June in almost 10 years. Money market funds jumped $38.0 billion in May after declining $80.0 billion in April, $32.9 billion in March, and $13.9 billion in February.
