Money Market News


S&P Global Ratings published three updates on the cash investment space yesterday, including: "U.S. Domestic 'AAAm' Money Market Fund Trends (Fourth-Quarter 2022)," "European 'AAAm' Money Market Fund Trends (Fourth-Quarter 2022)" and "'AAAm' Local Government Investment Pool Trends (Fourth-Quarter 2022)." The first update tells us, "Money market funds (MMFs) received significant regulatory and market attention in 2022, following indicated U.S. MMF reforms, yet to be finalized, and climbing yields that have spotlighted this asset class for investors. Rated U.S. government MMFs had a slight decline in assets during the fourth quarter, and outflows of 9% for 2022, as some investors moved funds into higher yielding products. Rated prime MMFs benefited from higher yields and attracted flows. Assets under management (AUM) in prime fund strategies grew nearly 15% in 2022, landing at $418 billion in the fourth quarter."
