Edwards' money-market funds and into lower-interest-rate Wachovia bank accounts. But ... what Thompson really said was that Wachovia plans to shift A.G. Edwards' money-market clients from a third-party provider, OppenheimerFunds, into money-market funds from Wachovia-owned Evergreen Investments. At the time of the call, A.G. Edwards' Centennial money-market funds paid up to 4.79% ... the cash-sweep account at Wachovia paid 1% or less.
