With just over a month to go, we continue to make preparations for our Money Fund Symposium conference, which will still take place live, Sept. 21-23, 2021, at The Loews Philadelphia. While we're watching latest on "delta" variant coronavirus cases closely, we still expect our live show to go on. We expect virtually all of our attendees to be vaccinated, and we believe cases will be falling sharply as we get into September (given what's happened in the U.K.). We'll of course adhere to whatever health policies the hotel and city have in place at the time and will adjust our plans if necessary. (The hotel and city are currently requiring masks, but we're checking to see if this applies if everyone is vaccinated. There are no restrictions on size or events in Pennsylvania currently.) We'll offer recorded or virtual sessions for those that can't make it, and will switch to virtual if travel or municipal restrictions force us to. We'll also offer refunds, or credits for next year's show, (and will include access to this year's recordings) for any reason at any time. Crane's Money Fund Symposium, the largest gathering of money market fund managers and cash investors in the world, is still scheduled to take place September 21-23, 2021 at The Loews Hotel, in Philadelphia, Pa. The latest agenda is available and registrations are still being taken. (We'll be tweaking the agenda in coming days as some speakers may not be able to make it due to travel restrictions, so ask Pete for the latest update or if you might be interested in subbing in as a speaker.) Money Fund Symposium attracts money fund managers, marketers and servicers, cash investors, money market securities dealers, issuers, and regulators. Visit the MF Symposium website at www.moneyfundsymposium.com) for more details. Registration is $750, and discounted hotel reservations are available. Full refunds will be given for any cancels for any reason, and thanks to our sponsors for their support ... and patience! We hope you'll still join us in Philadelphia next month! (Again, the show will be recorded for those that can't make it.) We'd like to encourage attendees, speakers and sponsors not to wait for the last minute to register and make hotel reservations, but we of course understand if you want to wait to monitor conditions. Note that the agenda is still being finalized, so watch for tweaks in coming weeks. E-mail us at info@cranedata.com to request the full brochure. Also, register for our virtual (and free) "European Money Fund Symposium, which is scheduled for Oct. 21, 2021, from `9:30am-12:00pm Eastern. (We cancelled our live European MFS in Paris, and have rescheduled this live event to Sept. 27-28, 2022.) Our virtual EMFS session will include a "Welcome to European MF Symposium" from Peter Crane; a "European MMF Update: Ireland, France, UK" with Vanessa Robert of Moody's, Alastair Sewell of Fitch Ratings and Andrew Paranthoiene of S&P Global Ratings; "Regulatory ESG & Ultra-Short Issues" with Patrick Rooney of Irish Funds, James Vincent of Goldman Sachs Asset Mgmt. and Rob Sabatino of UBS Asset Management; and "Senior Portfolio Manager Perspectives," with Deborah Cunningham of Federated Hermes, Joe McConnell of J.P. Morgan Asset Mgmt and Paul Mueller of Invesco. Finally, mark your calendars for our next Money Fund University which is scheduled for Jan. 20-21, 2022, in Boston, Mass and our next Bond Fund Symposium, which is scheduled for Mar. 28-29, 2022 in Newport Beach, California.
