This looks at member progress in adopting legislation, regulation and other policies relating to MMFs in a range of reform areas, including the regulatory definition of MMFs, valuation practices and liquidity management by MMFs, and the use of ratings by the MMF industry. The preliminary findings indicate, among other things, that most jurisdictions that participated in the review either have measures in force in all reform areas or are progressing towards that outcome.

It includes end-2013 data from 25 jurisdictions and the euro area as a whole, bringing the coverage of the monitoring exercise to about 80% of global GDP and 90% of global financial system assets.
