Money market funds

20-04-2015

Money market funds (MMFs) are a type of collective fund that invests in short-term debt. During the financial crisis their liquidity and stability were challenged, which prompted regulators globally to propose rules intended to make MMFs more crisis-resilient. The Parliament is due to vote on the Commission's proposal for a regulation setting rules on MMFs in the Single Market.
