The End or the Beginning for Money Market Funds?

The End or Beginning for MMFs?

In August 2014, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) in the United States adopted reforms to Rule 2a7 funds (US money market funds - MMFs) with the aim of reducing systematic risk.

Inevitably, these changes have been met with a mixed response, not least due to the uncertainty that will undoubtably continue until full adoption of the reforms in 2016. In reality, however, are these reforms likely to mark the end of the MMF era, or conversely, given the other market and regulatory changes that are taking place in parallel, are we on the brink of a new phase in the growth of MMFs?
