Every single one of the 90 money market mutual fund managers tracked by Crane Data's Money Fund Intelligence XLS has now applied for the U.S. Treasury Department's new Money Market Fund Temporary Guaranty Program. The Reserve is the most recent to announce its application, though its acceptance in the program remains uncertain. Crane Data `estimates that 95% of the $3.4 trillion in money fund assets are now covered by the program. (The number would be higher, but we're not counting Reserve yet, and some families chose not to insure their Treasury funds.)
