The events leading up to the financial crisis in 2007-2009 had far reaching impacts causing much change in the financial industry.  One of those changes was in the Money Market fund segment of the industry.  We will discuss what led to the changes, impacts on the market, review where we are now and what the implications are as we have now shifted to a rising rate environment.
