In response to the financial crisis, regulators and governments worldwide have embarked on a series of measures designed to make the global financial system more robust. Two of the most significant measures are Basel III, which aims to strengthen the global banking system, and global Money Market Fund changes, including to Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Rule 2a-7, which are designed to better protect money market fund (MMF) investors. Both have major implications for corporate liquidity management and short-term investment strategies.
