Money Market News


The Federal Reserve released its latest quarterly "Z.1 Financial Accounts of the United States" statistical survey (a.k.a. "Flow of Funds") Thursday. Among the 4 tables it includes on money market mutual funds, the First Quarter 2021 edition shows that Total MMF Assets increased by $164 billion to $4.500 trillion in Q1'21. The Household Sector, by far the largest investor segment with $2.783 trillion, saw assets jump in Q1. The second largest segment, Nonfinancial Corporate Businesses, experienced a drop in assets. The Fed's latest Z.1 numbers, which contain one of the few looks at money fund investor segments available, show asset decreases in MMF holdings for the Nonfiancial Corporate Business and Life Insurance Companies categories in Q1 2021. (Reminder: Register for our upcoming "Asian Money Fund Symposium" webinar, which takes place next Thursday, June 17 from 10am-12pm Eastern.)

We'll continue to watch developments though, and will be happy to offer refunds or credits if anyone isn't comfortable travelling then. Also, note that we're converting our European Money Fund Symposium, which had been scheduled for October 21-22, 2021 in Paris, into a virtual event on Oct. 21, 2021. (We'll be doing next year's event live in Paris in Sept. 2022.) Finally, mark your calendars for our 2022 events -- Money Fund University in Boston (Jan. 20-21) and Bond Fund Symposium in Newport Beach, Calif. (March 28-29). Let us know if you'd like more information about any of our shows, and we hope to see you back out on the road in 2021!
