Prof. Jill Fisch on embracing sponsor support in money market fund reform

Jill Fisch’s article, “The Broken Buck Stops Here: Embracing Sponsor Support in Money Market Fund Reform,” argues that the difference between MMFs and banks provides the basis for a simple yet unprecedented regulatory solution: requiring sponsors of MMFs explicitly to guarantee a $1 share price. Taking sponsor support out of the shadows provides a mechanism for enhancing MMF stability that embraces rather than ignoring the advantage that MMFs offer over banks through asset partitioning.
