As we announced in June, we've cancelled our European Money Fund Symposium in Paris, France, and instead we're hosting a slimmed down (and free) virtual European Money Fund Symposium Online on Oct. 21, 2021 (from 9:30-Noon Eastern or 2:30-5pm London time). Our Paris European Money Fund Symposium has been rescheduled to next year, Sept. 27-28, 2022. Watch for more details on the latter in coming months, and we hope you'll join us online October 21 for our EMFS Online. (Register here.) European Money Fund Symposium Online is a 2 1/2 hour free virtual update on Euro, Sterling and USD money funds domiciled in Ireland, France and Luxembourg. It features the following sessions and speakers: Welcome to European MF Symposium (Peter Crane of Crane Data), European MMF Update: Ireland, France, UK (Vanessa Robert of Moody’s Investors Service, Alastair Sewell of Fitch Ratings and Andrew Paranthoiene of S&P Global Ratings), Regulatory, ESG & Ultra-Short Issues (Veronica Iommi of IMMFA, James Vincent of Goldman Sachs Asset Mgmt., and Rob Sabatino of UBS Asset Mgmt.), Senior Portfolio Manager Perspectives (Deborah Cunningham of Federated Hermes, Joe McConnell of J.P. Morgan Asset Mgmt., and Paul Mueller of Invesco). Also, with just over 3 weeks to go, we continue to make preparations for our Money Fund Symposium conference, which will take place live, Sept. 21-23, 2021, at The Loews Philadelphia. We're making safety preparations and expect our attendees to be vaccinated or to test negative. 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 masks are not required within our session and exhibit areas. 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 let us know if you'd like to hear more about our preparations. 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. Again, 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 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 in September! We'd like to encourage attendees, speakers and sponsors not to wait for the last minute to register and make hotel reservations (today is the last day for our discounted rate), but we of course understand if you want to wait to monitor conditions. 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. Let us know if you'd like more details on any of our events, and we hope to see you in Philadelphia in September or in Boston or Newport Beach in 2022!
