After years of controversy, a divided Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) issued new rules for money market mutual funds. The rules are designed to prevent investor “runs” in times of stress while at the same time preserve the benefits of money market funds.

Join Partners Oliver Ireland and Jay Baris along with Andrew J. (Buddy) Donohue of Goldman Sachs Asset Management LP, for a concise and illuminating discussion of the SEC’s new regulations governing money market funds.

Topics for discussion will include:

  • Brief history of the SEC’s years’ long fight to enact new rules for money market funds.
  • How will redemption fees and gates work?
  • How will the new rules apply to institutional money market funds, retail funds and government funds?
  • What legal and operational challenges can we expect?
  • What are the potential pitfalls?
  • How will the new rules affect money market fund directors?
  • How will the new rules affect the capital markets?
  • Will the new rules satisfy the federal banking regulators?
