Crane Data President Peter Crane will present a Webinar for the Association for Financial Professionals (AFP) entitled, "Money Market Mutual Funds: Reviewing the New Regulations & Discussing the Outlook for Future Changes on Wednesday, May 19, 2010, from 3:30 p.m.-4:30 p.m. ET. The session description says, "Money fund expert Peter Crane from Crane Data will review recent changes to Rule 2a-7, the SEC's guidelines for money market funds. Crane will also discuss the possibility of more radical future changes to money funds' structure, such as a floating price, capital reserves or an emergency liquidity bank facility. Crane will also review recent asset trends and the zero and pending rising rate environment." Registration is complimentary. See also ICI's new publication, "Understanding the Risks of Bond Mutual Funds: Are They Right for Me?", which says, "Bond mutual funds -- like all mutual funds -- involve investment risk, including the possible loss of principal. A fundamental principle of investing known as the risk/reward tradeoff means that when you make an informed decision to assume some risk, you also create the opportunity for reward. Investors should be aware of the risks and potential for losses associated with bond mutual fund investing.... Investing in bond mutual funds usually entails less risk -- and less reward -- than investing in stock mutual funds. Similarly, bank accounts and money market funds entail less risk and less reward than do bond mutual funds."
