As a reminder, we're making the final preparations for our new educational conference, Crane's Money Fund University, which will be held Jan. 13-14, 2011, at the Westin Jersey City Newport. We hope you will consider sending your new people! Money Fund University will offer attendees an affordable and comprehensive two day, "basic training" course on money market mutual funds. We'll cover the history of money funds, interest rates, Rule 2a-7, ratings, rankings, money market instruments such as commercial paper and repo, and portfolio construction and credit analysis. New portfolio managers, analysts, investors, issuers, service providers, and anyone interested in expanding their knowledge of "cash" investing should benefit from our comprehensive program. Even experienced professionals should enjoy a refresher course and the opportunity to interact with peers in an informal setting. Visit for the latest details or e-mail Pete Crane for a copy of the full brochure. Registration is just $600. We'd like to extend a special thanks to our MFU Sponsors -- BofA Global Capital Management, Fitch Ratings, Wells Fargo Advantage Funds, Citibank Online Investments, Commerzbank, Fidelity Investments, Invesco, G.X. Clarke & Co., Standard & Poor's and Institutional Cash Distributors (ICD) -- and to our speakers for supporting our new program.
