Money Market News


As we make final preparations for our virtual European Money Fund Symposium, which will take place this Thursday (10/21) from 9:30am-12:00pm EDT, Crane Data is also making plans for our next live event, Money Fund University. The 12th annual MFU, our "basic training" conference, will take place at the Hyatt Regency in Boston, Mass., January 20-21, 2022. Crane's Money Fund University is designed for those new to the money market fund industry or those in need of a concentrated refresher on the basics. The event also focuses on hot topics like money market fund regulations, money fund alternatives, offshore markets, and other recent industry trends. Our educational conference features a faculty of the money fund industry's top lawyers, strategists, and portfolio managers, and the Boston show will include an extended free training session (and lunch) for Crane Data clients. We review the MFU agenda, and also the upcoming AFP conference in Washington, below. (We hope to see many of you at AFP in November -- come visit us at booth #1136!)
