The pandemic-fueled volatility of 2020 had the effect of driving total, taxable, government, and retail U.S. money-market fund assets higher, but it had the opposite effect on the already-struggling tax-free and municipal-fund sector of the industry, reducing the number of tax-free funds by nearly 15 percent since January 2020 and assets in those funds over the same period by 41.7 percent to the lowest levels since iMoneyNet began tracking tax-free fund data in 1981. As of end-May 2021, total assets in tax-free funds stood at $92.4 billion, down from $107 billion in early January and from $141.0 billion in January 2020, just prior to the outbreak of the COVID pandemic, as the table above shows. Similarly, the number of funds fell to 162 on May 31 of this year, a reduction from 185 as the year began and from 187 in early 2020. Read more...

Bank of England Governor Andrew Bailey has added his voice and the BoE’s authority to the chorus of regulators, academic researchers, think tanks, and even some fund sponsors – such as Charles Schwab – in arguing for a reconsideration of the role played by MMFs last spring and advocating for additional reforms.

Memories of the 2007-2008 global financial crisis - now a decade behind us - remain all too fresh, as regulators and political leaders continue to debate causes of that crisis and to advance the most effective strategies for preventing a future one. Whether significant and sudden redemptions from money-market mutual funds - in Europe and in the U.S. - were a fundamental cause of the crisis or an unfortunate consequence of it continues to be debated by some regulators, academics, and market participants. However, the presumption in the immediate aftermath of the crisis, as the G20 group of nations agreed in 2008, was that the absence of discipline in short-term credit markets generally, and among money-market funds specifically, needed to be addressed. Therefore they advocated sweeping financial reforms on market instruments and processes, including on money-market funds. Read more...

In the spirit of concerns over foreign flows I’m looking at some perhaps arcane aspects to such activity that both confirm what the market has already talked about and perhaps adds somewhat counter-trend perspectives to foreign flows using Informa’s EPFR data.

I am first, foremost and solely a US Interest Rate Strategist (call me I-rate for short) so it is with no shortage of anxiety that I dare delve into the equity market. That said, I do look at the evidence and there are things out there that make me wary of equity valuations which, all things being equal, should serve as a brake of sorts on a sharp rise in bond yields.
