Will Retail Money Fund Investors 'Unfairly' Carry the Regulatory Burden?

News summary by MFWire's editors

Money market fundsters watching the debates over more money market mutual fund reform may want to take a look at the new, June issue of Crane Data's Money Fund Intelligence, published yesterday. The trade pub interviewed Reich & Tang [see profile] chief strategist and money fund PM Tom Nelson. Among other topics, Nelson worries that more money fund regs would be addressing institutional investors' problems while also costing retail investors.

"It seems retail shareholders are unfairly carrying the burden in providing a solution for institutional clients," Nelson told the pub. "In the case of a liquidity event brought on by a systemic problem or a significant interest rate differential, there is a vast difference in the behavior of retail and institutional shareholders. Retail assets would likely remain quite stable while institutional assets will tip the balance."

Nelson also discusses the Natixis subsidiary's new RNT Natixis Liquid Prime Portfolio, Reich's January purchase of Double Rock's Liquid Insured Deposits (LIDs) business, a business focused on FDIC-insured products, and more.
