EU Money Market Reform Resource Center

The EU's new regulations are aimed at making money market funds (MMFs) more robust, ensuring the smooth operation of the short-term funding market. Regulators set out to maintain the essential role that MMFs play in financing the European economy and recognize the importance of providing short-term options for investors. The rules have received final sign-off by the European Parliament and were published in the Official Journal on June 30, 2017. They came into force on July 20, 2017 with the effective date for compliance January 21, 2019.

The funds outlined are not available to U.S. Persons (as described in the Prospectus) and may only be offered and sold in accordance with Regulation S under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933.

Therefore, investors will not be entitled to the benefits of such registration(s). Investors must carefully consider the risks associated with the investments described herein, some of which include: i) investing in the sub-funds is not comparable to investing in a deposit account; ii) investments are subject to uncertainties such as international political developments, changes in government policies, changes in taxation, restrictions on foreign investment and currency repatriation, currency fluctuations and other developments in the laws and regulations of countries in which investments are made or in which the BNY Mellon Liquidity Funds plc is incorporated; iii) the legal infrastructure and accounting, auditing and reporting standards in certain countries in which investment may be made may not provide the same degree of investor protection of information to investors as would generally apply in major securities markets; iv) a sub-fund may use futures or options which can increase volatility and the risk of loss; v) the value of a sub-fund will fluctuate in accordance with the changes in the foreign exchange rate between the euro, the dollar, the sterling and the currencies in which the sub-fund’s investments are denominated, therefore creating an exposure to currency risk; vi) value of a sub-fund may be affected by changes in interest rates and the creditworthiness of issuers of the sub-fund’s investments; and vii) certain sub-funds may invest in lower-rated fixed income securities, and such securities carry a higher degree of default risk which may affect the value of an investment. The foregoing list of certain risk factors does not purport to be a complete enumeration or explanation of the risks involved in an investment in the fund described herein. In addition, as the investment markets and investment products develop and change over time, an investment may be subject to additional and different risk factors.
