A Treasurers Guide to Money Market Funds 2009

Welcome to TMI's 2009 Guide to Money Market Funds. This is perhaps the year that money market funds (MMFs), specifically IMMFA AAA-rated MMFs have truly come into their own, providing security and liquidity during a period when both have been compromised. Like every other investment product, MMFs have been tested, and in the vast majority of cases, have proved resilient and fit for purpose.

In this Guide, we are delighted to present an interview with Travis Barker of HSBC in his new appointment as President of IMMFA in which he discusses his thoughts on the future development of IMMFA and of MMFs. We also feature a variety of articles from IMMFA tracing the past and future of MMFs. François Masquelier of RTL Group and Honorary President of the EACT and Philippe Debatty, CAIA, Managing Director, Alternative Advisers S.A. assess MMFs in relation to corporate treasurers' view of risk. Some of the most respected providers of MMFs in the industry present their views on issues such as liquidity, risk, regulation and the future of MMFs.
