Money Market News


One year ago, we wrote that the "SEC Adopts Money Market Fund Reforms," which reviewed the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission's latest attempt to make money funds more robust and able to withstand events like the March 2020 Covid crisis. Our update said, the "Money Market Fund Reforms ... abandoned [the SEC's] swing pricing proposal for Prime and Tax Exempt Institutional money market funds and replaced it with a mandatory liquidity fee regime. They also increased liquidity and disclosure requirements." We review the reforms with a focus on the latest piece to go live -- the Form N-MFP disclosures -- below. (Note: Crane Data has been adjusting our Form N-MFP data files to incorporate the latest data reporting changes. Our files have now been posted for Money Fund Wisdom subscribers, though we'll no doubt be tweaking and correcting some issues in the coming days.)
