  • Statement At Open Meeting Regarding Money Market Fund Reform - SEC Commissioner Michael S. Piwowar, Washington, D.C., July 23, 2014

    Date 23/07/2014

    Thank you, Chair White.

    The money market fund reforms before us today address many complex issues, and I want to join my fellow commissioners in thanking the rulemaking team for all of their hard work and dedication.  They spent countless hours, including many late nights and weekends over the past several months, working through the issues, reviewing numerous detailed comment letters, and formulating their three recommendations for our consideration today.  As to the first recommendation, while I support the adoption of all the amendments to the disclosure, reporting, and stress testing requirements, I am not able to support the adoption of the so-called combination approach which would require institutional prime and tax‑exempt money market funds to price and transact at a floating net asset value (NAV) calculated to the fourth decimal place (nearest basis point) and also would require liquidity fees and discretionary redemption gates.  As to the second recommendation, I support the issuance of a notice of the proposed order to allow broker‑dealers to continue to provide money market fund shareholders transaction information on a monthly basis.  As to the third recommendation, I am pleased to support the re-proposed amendments to replace references to credit rating in the money market fund rule, modify disclosures of credit ratings in Form N-MFP, and the proposed amendments to eliminate an exclusion in the money market fund rule’s issuer diversification requirement.

  • Fact Sheet: US Treasury Guidance On Accounting For Gains And Losses In Certain Money Market Funds

    Date 23/07/2014

    Today, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) voted to require certain money market funds (MMFs) to price shares in a manner that more accurately reflects the market value of the funds’ underlying portfolios.  These particular MMFs will no longer be able to utilize the special exemptions that currently allow them to maintain a stable net asset value (NAV), and instead the share price will float, so the funds will be known as “floating-NAV” MMFs.  If a shareholder frequently purchases and redeems shares (as is the case where the fund is used as a “sweep arrangement”), the shareholder may experience a high volume of small gains and losses.  Tax compliance might be difficult and burdensome if these taxpayers had to ascertain the cost basis and gain or loss for each transaction.

    The Commission will today consider three recommendations of the staff, all related to money market funds. We will discuss all of these items together and then will vote on each of the three action items separately following our discussion. The first is a recommendation to adopt final rules and the other two are proposals, and I look forward to the staff presentation on all three.
