On Wednesday, the New England Association for Financial Professionals (AFP) starts its 33rd Annual Sources of Education Conference at the Seaport World Trade Center in Boston (April 18-20). Crane Data's Peter Crane will speak Wednesday morning on "Money Market Funds: Past, Present & Future." This session will be "geared towards corporate cash managers, and other professionals dealing with money markets. Money fund expert Peter Crane will review past problems in money market investments, the current state of yields, asset flows and cash options, and the outlook for money fund products and investments going forward. Attendees will learn how to maximize their yield and avoid potential risks in a rising rate environment, whether prime money funds are still (or again) a valid investment alternative for cash, and what higher-yielding (and higher risk) products and strategies investors are exploring in 2018." NEAFP will also feature a number of other sessions involving money funds and cash investments. These include: "Comparing New Investment Alternatives: Products and Strategies," with Anthony Carfang of Treasury Strategies and Ian Rasmussen of Fitch Ratings, "Navigating the New Treasury Investing Environment" with Kirk Black of BNY Mellon, "Seeking to Optimize Corporate Liquidity," with Jamie Cortas of Dell and Kerry Pope of Fidelity Investments, "How Exchange Traded Funds Work & Why Treasurers Should Care," with Will Goldthwait of State Street Global Advisors, and "Short Corporate Ladders as an Effective Alternative for Corporate Treasurers," with Andrew Goodall of Eaton Vance. Crane Data will also be exhibiting along with a number of money fund providers. We hope to see some of you in Boston later this week at the show! Note: We'll also be speaking, exhibiting and/or attending the following upcoming shows: SIFMA's AMA Roundtable (Phoeniz, May 6-8), the ICI General Membership Meeting (Washington, May 23), the New York Cash Exchange (New York City, May 30-31), and of course our big Money Fund Symposium (Pittsburgh, June 25-27).
