Money Market News


Crane Data's latest MFI International shows total assets in "offshore" money market mutual funds, U.S.-style funds domiciled in Ireland or Luxemburg and denominated in USD and Euro remain down year-to-date, though they've recently trimmed their losses. Through 6/13/19, overall MFII assets are down $7.7 billion to $828.0 billion. (They rose $15.2 billion in 2018.) Offshore USD money funds are down $4.5 billion YTD (they rose $28.8B last year). Euro funds are still feeling the pain of negative rates and recent European MMF reforms; they're down E8.1 billion YTD (following 2 flat years). GBP funds are up, however, by L7.8 billion. U.S. Dollar (USD) money funds (175) account for over half ($449.5 billion, or 53.8%) of this "European" money fund total, while Euro (EUR) money funds (76) total E90.9 billion (10.9%) and Pound Sterling (GBP) funds (103) total L217.2 billion (26.0%). We summarize our latest "offshore" money fund statistics and our Money Fund Intelligence International Portfolio Holdings (which went out to subscribers Friday), below.
