Treasury TV: Yeng Butler compares US and European MMF reforms

The US money market reforms came into effect in 2016 and are already dramatically shaping US fund industry with investors flooding out of prime funds and into government securities. The European money market fund reforms became legally effective in July 2017.

This was the start of an 18-month transition period for existing funds to comply. Full compliance with the regulation will be required by January 21 2019.
