Money Market Fund Reform – How the Cash Investing Landscape Has Changed          

The final phase of SEC Money Market Fund Reform went live on October 14, 2016. Leading up to this event and beyond, institutional cash investors have been facing a number of new challenges around investing and diversifying their cash holdings in the short-term space. As a result of these reforms, there was a significant migration of assets out of Prime Money Market Funds and into Government Money Market Funds and alternative short-term cash investment products. We will discuss the market dynamics surrounding money market fund reform and the impact on the cash investing landscape. We will also invite industry practitioners in the audience to share their perspectives.
