See also, Fitch says "Rating Cash Pools Using MMF Criteria". The ratings agency writes, "Fitch Ratings is receiving increased numbers of enquiries about assigning ratings to managed cash pools or mandates. Fitch's Global Rating Criteria for Money Market Funds is applicable to these pools or mandates, with adjustments for the treatment of liquidity. Fitch has published specific guidelines it considers consistent with funds, pools or mandates rated at the 'AAAmmf', 'AAmmf' and 'Ammf' rating levels.... The rating of a cash pool is subject to the same process and surveillance as the rating of an open-ended MMF. Cash pool ratings may be assigned on a public or private basis. Managed cash pools and mandates are typically managed on behalf of a single, or infrequently, small group of investors. The interest for such products is growing in a low yield environment where the cost of holding sufficient liquidity to mitigate commingling risk is relatively high, particularly if the investor does not require daily liquidity."
