Money market fund (MMF) reforms

"Full implementation of MMF reforms won't take place until February 2019, but treasurers need to start preparing for the replacement of [prime] constant net asset value (CNAV) funds with two new categories:
- the Public Debt CNAV fund, and
- the low-volatility NAV (LNAV) fund.

According to research from rating agency Moody's, LVNAV MMFs are likely to attract most of the funds currently invested in prime CNAV MMFs."
