    This week's issue of Money Fund Report

    06 Apr 2020

    iMoneyNet was among the first to report that a consortium of business associations and asset managers have appealed to the U.S. Federal Reserve to include a broader range of commercial paper issuers – specifically those designated as T2 – in the Fed’s new Commercial Paper Funding Facility. In a March 31 letter to Fed Chair Jerome Powell and reported in iMoneyNet’s Money Fund Report on Wednesday, the consortium members asserted that T2 CP issuers are entirely “investment grade” and present a default rate only “infinitesimally” greater than their T1-rated peers.

Assets in all U.S. funds ended the year at $3,581.4 trillion, a four-quarter increase of $588.4 billion, or 19.7 percent, as the table below shows. Between the third and fourth quarters, all assets increased by 5.5 percent. Taxable funds fared better, growing by $596.0 billion to $3,441.1 trillion, a yearly jump of 20.9 percent, and a Q3-to-Q4 growth of 5.6 percent.
