As we prepare for our upcoming Money Fund University "basic training" event in Providence, R.I., Jan. 23-24, we wanted the publication that gave us the idea for the event years ago, The Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond's "Instruments of the Money Market." The publication is one of the few overviews of the money markets available, and we took the core of this work's text as the core of our "course" on money markets at MFU. The work's website explains, "The following chapters were originally published in the seventh edition of Instruments of the Money Market, edited by Timothy Q. Cook and Robert K. Laroche. The information in this publication, although last revised in 1993 and no longer in print, is still frequently requested by academics, business leaders, and market analysts." As a reminder, with just over two weeks to go, we're gearing up for Crane's Money Fund University, which will be held January 23-24 at the Renaissance Providence Downtown Hotel. The 10th annual Money Fund University will cover the history of money funds, interest rates, regulations (Rule 2a-7), ratings, rankings, money market instruments such as commercial paper, CDs and repo, and portfolio construction and credit analysis. We also include segments on offshore money funds and ultra-short bond funds. Money Fund University's comprehensive program is good for both beginners and experienced professionals looking for a refresher. The agenda is available online and we are still accepting registrations. (We're also willing to "comp" tickets for large Crane Data or sponsor clients, so let us know if you're interested.) Make your hotel reservations soon! Crane Data is also making plans for its fourth annual ultra-short bond fund event, Bond Fund Symposium, which will take place March 23-24, 2020 at the Hyatt Regency in Boston. Crane's Bond Fund Symposium offers a concentrated and affordable educational experience, as well as an excellent networking venue, for bond fund and fixed-income professionals. Registrations are now being accepted ($750) and sponsorship opportunities are available. Mark your calendars for our big show, Crane's Money Fund Symposium, which will be held June 24-26, 2020, at the Hyatt Regency Minneapolis. We're now taking registrations and the preliminary agenda will soon be available at: www.moneyfundsymposium.com. Finally, we've also set the dates and location for our next European Money Fund Symposium. It is scheduled for Sept. 17-18, 2020, in Paris, France. Let us know if you'd like more details on any of our events, and we hope to see you in Providence, Boston, Minneapolis or Paris in 2020!
