Money Market News


Crane Data's latest MFI International shows that assets in European or "offshore" money market mutual funds declined over the past month to $973.8 billion. European MMF assets declined during the first 4 1/2 months of 2022, then increased over 2 months. But they've declined since. They remain below their record high of $1.101 trillion in mid-December 2021. These U.S.-style money funds, domiciled in Ireland or Luxembourg but denominated in US Dollars, Pound Sterling and Euros, decreased by $16.5 billion over the 30 days through 8/11. (Note that the increase in the U.S. dollar has caused Euro and Sterling totals to decline when they're translated back into dollars.) The totals are down $89.2 billion (-8.4%) year-to-date. Offshore US Dollar money funds are up $3.7 billion over the last 30 days and are up $2.8 billion YTD to $537.2 billion. Euro funds rose E17.2 billion over the past month. YTD they're down E5.6 billion to E152.8 billion. GBP money funds increased L3.7 billion over 30 days; they are down by L18.7 billion YTD to L228.4B. U.S. Dollar (USD) money funds (206) account for over half (55.2%) of the "European" money fund total, while Euro (EUR) money funds (96) make up 16.1% and Pound Sterling (GBP) funds (133) total 28.7%. We summarize our latest "offshore" money fund statistics and our Money Fund Intelligence International Portfolio Holdings (which will go out to subscribers Tuesday), below. (Note: Make your plans and hotel reservations soon for our upcoming European Money Fund Symposium, which is Sept. 27-28, 2022, in Paris, France.)
