Chinese financial regulators have recently published new rules for China's CNY 100trn asset management industry. Aidan Shevlin, J.P. Morgan Asset Management, outlines the implications of the new rules for the industry and for corporate treasurers - and suggests practical steps for rethinking liquidity management in China.
Up until recently, Money Market Fund reform was a prospect that many treasurers were reluctant to embrace. However, in this new regulatory era it is in the investor's interest to take advantage of the products that are emerging from reregulation, such as the fixed-term fund.
As the implementation date for the new European Money Market Fund (MMF) rules approaches, it is time to dispel some of the common misconceptions about the new rules and explain what treasurers really need to consider when it comes to short-term investment options.
A rising rate environment can be challenging to even the most sophisticated fixed income investors. In this unpredictable environment, an actively managed ultra-short-duration strategy could be the optimal liquidity solution for treasurers.
With the European Money Market Fund Regulations set for implementation in early 2019, Jim Fuell explains how he and his team are helping J.P. Morgan Asset Management clients to understand their options under the changes that the new regime will bring.
