While we're making final preparations for next month's European Money Fund Symposium, Sept. 20-21 in London, England, we're also starting to prepare for our next "basic training" event, Money Fund University. Our 9th annual MFU returns to the Stamford Marriott Hotel in Stamford, Conn., January 17-18, 2019. Crane's Money Fund University is designed for those new to the money market fund industry or those in need of a concentrated refresher on the basics. The event also focuses on hot topics like money market regulations, money fund alternatives, offshore markets, and other recent industry trends. The affordable educational conference (see the agenda here or e-mail us to request our brochure) features a faculty of the money fund industry's top lawyers, strategists, and portfolio managers. Money Fund University offers attendees a 2-day course on money market mutual funds, educating attendees on the history of money funds, the Fed, Rule 2a-7, ratings, rankings, money market instruments such as commercial paper, CDs, CP, ABC, repo, plus portfolio construction. At our next Stamford event, we will again take a look at ultra-short bond funds and Europeans MMF regulations. New portfolio managers, analysts, investors, issuers, service providers, and anyone interested in expanding their knowledge of "cash" investing will 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 are $3K, $4K, and $5K. A block of rooms has been reserved at the Stamford Marriott. We'd like to thank our MFU sponsors –- Dreyfus/BNY Mellon CIS, Federated Investors, Fidelity Investments, Fitch Ratings, J.P. Morgan Asset Management, TD Securities, S&P Global, and Dechert -- for their support, and we hope to see you in Stamford in January.
