Money market funds, sometimes called money funds, are a type of mutual fund developed in the 1970s as an option for investors to purchase a pool of securities that generally provided higher returns than interest-bearing bank accounts. Money market funds invest in high quality, short-term debt securities and pay dividends that generally reflect short-term interest rates. Many investors use money market funds to manage their cash and other short term funding needs.  They have since grown significantly and currently hold about $3.0 trillion in assets.

There are many kinds of money market funds, including ones that invest primarily in government securities, tax-exempt municipal securities, or corporate debt securities. Money market funds that primarily invest in corporate debt securities are referred to as prime funds. In addition, money market funds are often

US money market fund reform: an explainer

The long-awaited deadline for money market fund reform has arrived, with rules coming into effect on Friday for the $2.7tn market.

The collapse in 2008 of the Reserve Primary Fund, one of the most storied of US money market funds, attracted regulators’ attention to funds that had established a reputation as being as secure as bank deposits but offering better returns.

Money market funds are a primary funding source for the US government, banks and companies, and provide a key investment vehicle for a range of investors.

The Securities Exchange Commission has led the reform effort, which has already seen borrowing costs for a number of debt issuers rise, as investors have flocked out of “prime” funds, or those that can invest in a wider variety of assets, into those limited to government securities.

Government funds eclipsed prime funds in March, according to data from the Investment Company Institute. It

Best Money Market Accounts for April 2020

While money market accounts have several appealing features, they also have drawbacks. Here are a few you should be aware of if you’re considering one.

Withdrawal and transfer restrictions

The Federal Reserve places limits on withdrawal and transfer activities for savings accounts and money market accounts. The Fed generally considers these account types to be vehicles for savings, and actively tries to discourage too many withdrawals.

Regulation D is a rule prohibiting account holders from making more than six withdrawals and/or outgoing transfers per month. Any money market account holder who exceeds that limit is subject to a penalty fee from their bank or other financial institution.

Only certain types of transactions are subject to restriction under Regulation D, including:

  • Electronic transfers
  • Wire transfers
  • Automated Clearing House (ACH) transfers
  • Debit card transfers
  • Check transfers
  • Automatic or preauthorized transfers, like bill pay

Transactions that aren’t subject to Regulation D include:

  • ATM

Art & Finance report – highlights in the art market

Art & Finance Report 2019 – 6th edition

Since launching the initiative in 2011, we have seen the global art market ebb and flow: from the aftermath of the financial crisis to the peak of the market in 2016. In parallel, we have also monitored how the wealth management sector is increasingly responding to competitive pressures in its own industry, and the role art and collectible wealth are playing in the transition to a more holistic wealth management model.

Since our last report in 2017, external factors such as increasing political and economic uncertainty, rapid technological progress, climate change, and social inequality have dominated the headlines on a daily basis. We live in a changing world, fraught with uncertainty. This is the context in which we should view the global art and finance industry—the crucial intersection between culture and wealth.

We hope that this report will help to raise awareness
