EPFR Exchange Podcast – The Rise of Money Markets: strengths, challenges, and reforms feat. Schwab Asset Managements’ Tim Schiltz

Join us for an exclusive conversation with industry leaders Jay McLaughlin from iMoneyNet, and guest expert Tim Schiltz from Schwab Asset Management.

Dive deeper into what has by some measures been a banner year for US liquidity funds, especially if inflows are your key measure of success. The group of US Money Market Funds tracked by EPFR have seen inflows this year climb past $1 trillion total, a record by far. iMoneyNet leader Jay McLaughlin highlights how assets and yields have been performing quite well over the past 18 months, especially when looking at the all taxable average – the most commonly used benchmark for iMoneyNet – from a yield perspective.

However, this only tells part of what is – more than ever – a complicated story. To a degree, Money Market Funds gain is pain for US regional banks as their deposit bases migrate. Those expanding asset bases are also keeping the industry in the forefront of regulatory minds, with another suite of reforms – the third in the last decade – currently on the drawing board.
