Final preparations are being made for next month's fifth annual Money Fund University, which will be held at The Stamford Marriott in Stamford, Conn., Jan. 22-23, 2015. (Please Note: Our discounted room rate at the Stamford Marriott of $159 plus tax is only available through Tuesday, Dec. 30.) Crane's Money Fund University offers attendees an affordable ($500) and comprehensive one and a half day, "basic training" course on money market mutual funds, educating attendees on the history of money funds, the Fed, interest rates, ratings, rankings, money market instruments such as commercial paper, CDs and repo, plus portfolio construction and credit analysis. At our Stamford event, we will also take a deep dive into the SEC's new money market reforms, with several sessions on the topic. 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 may enjoy a refresher course and the opportunity to interact with peers in an informal setting. Attendee registration for Crane's Money Fund University is just $500, exhibit space is $2,000, and sponsorship opportunities (which are still available) are $3K, $4K, and $5K. We'd like to thank our MFU sponsors -- Fitch Ratings, Dreyfus/BNY Mellon CIS, J.P. Morgan Asset Management, Standard & Poor's Ratings Services, Wells Fargo Advantage Funds, Dechert and Invesco -- for their support, and we look forward to seeing you in Stamford next month. E-mail Pete Crane ( for the latest brochure or visit to register or for more details. Crane Data is also preparing the preliminary agenda, and registration is now live, for our big show, Money Fund Symposium, which will be held June 24-26, 2015, at the Minneapolis Hilton in Minneapolis, Minn.
