    They want to see a portfolio that, obviously, has a performance beyond money market funds--so, above zero interest rates. Well, anybody can do that. You could, obviously, go buy a high-yielding asset or a longer-duration asset,
    of the curve, I'm sure you've paid a lot of attention to money market reform. Are there any opportunities that that's opened up for managers in the space? Schneider: Absolutely. The key point that many investors, whether institutional or retail, have missed over the past 40 years is that liquidity management has remained static. And now, all of a sudden, it has changed. We talk to treasurers and CFOs of Fortune 500 companies who really haven't fully understood that, over the next two years, the constitution of how a money market fund works--moving from $1 par NAV [net asset value] to a floating-rate NAV--is going to change markedly. And there are accounting ramifications and tax implications and, frankly, liquidity implications. So, for investors moving forward, they used to find safety, and importantly, income in money market funds; that's no longer going to be case. Two reasons: One, money market funds are going to have an increasingly subdued amount of supply that they can invest in. There is going to be an abundance of cash in the short end and fewer and fewer assets they can invest in. So, that's going to create a supply/demand mismatch. So, rates structurally are going to remain lower in money - market -fund types of assets, even once the Fed starts increasing rates. The second thing is active management. We need to be thinking about how to deploy investment opportunities beyond what the regulatory constraints are of a 2a-7 SEC money market fund. Now, there are valid reasons to invest in money market funds; but for investors thinking about how to tier their liquidity, the money - market -fund segment is only one aspect of liquidity management. Looking to short-term, low-duration types of strategies, such as our PIMCO Short-Term Fund (PSHAX)
    distinctly changed and will ultimately change forever, two years from now, once money market regulation is implemented. Bush: Great. Thanks very much, Jerome. Thanks for joining us. Schneider: Thanks for the opportunity.

    But what was interesting when I looked at the data is that money market funds haven't kept up with the rise in mutual fund assets. So, typically, you'd think they would go in tandem. People would hold some money in reserve in a money market fund and some money exposed to the market. However, that hasn't been the case. But what has increased is checking accounts. So, I think what's happening is that investors say, "There is no reason for me to take the money that's accumulating in my checking account, write a check to my broker, and deposit this into my money market fund, if there is no yield." With the Federal Reserve keeping interest rates so low and with money market fund regulation requiring money market funds to invest in higher-quality securities (such as treasury bonds) and keep the duration very short in short-term securities, money market funds just can't offer an attractive yield to compete or to even entice investors to take that money out of their checking accounts and put it into a money market fund. So, money market fund assets have really shrunk. Checking account assets have increased; time deposits, which are savings accounts or CDs (certificates of deposit), they've increased a little but not as much as the increase in checking accounts. So, it's really interesting. I think it's going to be a challenge for the money market fund industry of how to attract assets when there is no incentive there for people to keep money in a money market fund--if it doesn't have the convenience. And, really, I don't think money market funds have the same level of trust that people have in their corner bank. Benz: They're not FDIC-insured for one thing. Rawson:
    the short-term bond fund isn't subject to the same regulation as the money market fund. They can have a fluctuating NAV [net asset value], and they can offer you a higher return. So, there is going to be a little bit of a migration or a bifurcation. People who want really low-risk assets will stay with their money market fund. People who want a little bit more return and are willing to take some risk will switch into an ultrashort-term bond
