Boston - Arabstoday

Money market funds face uncharted waters if a debt deal is not reached soon in Washington, but Joe Morgan is not ready to abandon ship.In all, the funds hold about $1.3 trillion in Treasuries, agency debt and other securities backed by public institutions that to date have been regarded as safe havens.Many funds could continue to hold the debt even if there was a downgrade, analysts said. But one threat, according to Fitch Ratings, would be if investors rushed to pull money out of the funds because the government stopped renewing maturing securities.It’s an important view and one voiced by several managers as the $2.5 trillion money market mutual fund industry braces itself for the possibility a broad political agreement will not be reached.As Chief Investment Officer of Silicon Valley Bank’s asset management affiliate, Morgan keeps about $10 billion in money market funds, including $5 billion in government funds loaded with Treasury bills. Silicon Valley Bank is a unit of SVB Financial Group.But Morgan expects that, even if the government were forced into a technical default, officials would still find a way to pay bondholders. Money fund sponsors, meanwhile, have built up enough liquidity to convince him they could manage, even if other institutional investors yanked money out of the funds.“Even if you have a run that takes out 40 per cent of the assets, it’s business as usual” for his money fund shares, Morgan said on Friday.Reducing worriesHowever unlikely the chances of that, big money fund sponsors such as Fidelity Investments of Boston and Federated Investors Inc in Pittsburgh have moved to calm investors.Both companies and others have held meetings with investors and sent out briefing papers. Some such as BlackRock Inc and JPMorgan Chase & Co have also asked clients to reconsider guidelines, such as discussing whether limits on holding debt rated less than AAA should be revised.A Fidelity spokesman said it has stress-tested its money funds so they can withstand significant market volatility. In an emailed statement, the spokesman also said its money market funds have removed all US Treasuries that mature in the first two weeks of August “to avoid volatility from the deadline” of Aug. 2 in the Washington debt talks.In addition, Fidelity has raised the cash positions of its Treasury money market funds. Clark Case, the treasurer for the City of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, said the steps convinced him to keep assets in a Fidelity fund. “I’m not worried about that in the money market at all,” he said.
