The world’s biggest asset managers are pressing European Union regulators for extra time to adjust to new regulations that could upend about 80 billion euros (US$91 billion) of money-market funds.

BlackRock Inc. and the asset-management arms of JPMorgan Chase & Co. and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. are among the biggest managers of the funds, and will need to adjust their euro-denominated funds by as early as Jan. 21, when the rule takes effect.
