How the SEC Is Making Money Market Funds More Resilient
The revised rules are designed to:
Increase transparency by making more fund information available on www.dreyfus.com.
Provide fund boards additional tools to manage redemptions during periods of extraordinary market stress.
- Preserve the core benefits that distinguish money market funds — and this includes principal stability, liquidity and short-term yields.
Furthermore, the new rules will reclassify money market funds into Government/Treasury, Retail Prime and Municipal/Tax-Exempt, and Institutional Prime and Municipal/Tax-Exempt money market funds.
Municipal Bond Funds’ Multitude of Opportunities
For many investors, municipal bond funds are an essential part of a diversi ed portfolio as they offer a source of income potential that’s free from national, and sometimes state and local, income taxes. Faced with a low-interest rate environment, investment grade municipal bond funds allow investors to pursue potentially higher current income on an after-tax basis without exposing them to the risks that accompany higher-yielding, non-investment grade options.
