Late last week, Crane Data President Peter Crane spoke before the Commercial Paper Issuers Working Group quarterly meeting and gave a preview of issues that will be discussed at this week's Money Fund Symposium in Pittsburgh. At the CPIWG gathering, Crane also ran a Q&A with DWS Senior Credit Analyst Matt Plomin, who talked about their recent name change from Deutsche Bank Asset Management, the process of choosing names for fund approved lists and investments in separately managed accounts and other pools outside of money market funds. Excerpts from these two sessions follow. (Note: For those of you attending our 10th annual Crane's Money Fund Symposium, which takes place June 25-27 at the Westin Convention Center, welcome to Pittsburgh! Watch for reporting on the event in coming days, and see those of you attending at the show this afternoon!)
