Money Market News


Today marks the five-year anniversary of the passage of Money Market Fund Reforms in the U.S., which brought major changes to the structure of money market funds over the past half-decade. Below, we reprint our July 23, 2014 Crane Data News, "SEC Passes Final MMF Reform Rule 3-2; Final Reforms Just Like Proposed." We wrote 5 years ago: The U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission (SEC), which discussed and passed its Final Money Market Fund Reforms Wednesday morning (July 23 10am) with a 3-2 vote, released the following press release and "Fact Sheet" outlining the new rules. (The SEC's full 869-page Final MMF Reform Rules are now available here. Visitors may also view the archived Webcast of the Sunshine Meeting here.)
