Crane Data has finalized the agenda and is preparing for its sixth annual Money Fund University "basic training" conference, which will be held at the Hyatt Regency Boston in Boston, Mass., January 21-22, 2016. Crane's Money Fund University is designed for those new to the money market fund industry or those in need of a concentrated refresher on the basics. The event also focuses on hot topics like money market reforms, money fund alternatives, offshore markets, and other recent industry trends. The affordable ($500) educational conference (see the agenda here) features a faculty of the money fund industry's top lawyers, strategists, and portfolio managers. Money Fund University offers attendees a 2-day course on money market mutual funds, educating attendees on the history of money funds, the Fed, interest rates, ratings, rankings, money market instruments such as commercial paper, CDs and repo, plus portfolio construction and credit analysis. At our Boston event, we will also take a look at how the SEC's new money market reforms, which go into effect in October 2016, are changing the money fund landscape. We'd like to thank our MFU sponsors to date -- BlackRock, Dreyfus/BNY Mellon CIS, J.P. Morgan Asset Management, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services, First American Funds and Dechert LLP -- for their support, and we look forward to seeing you in Boston in January. E-mail for the latest brochure or visit to register or for more details. Crane Data has also published the preliminary agenda and is now taking registrations for its big show, Money Fund Symposium, which will be held June 22-24, 2016, at the Philadelphia Marriott in Philadelphia, Pa.. Finally, mark your calendars for our 3rd annual European Money Fund Symposium, which is scheduled for Sept. 20-21, 2016 in London, and watch for details for our first Bond Fund Symposium event in March 2016.
