Investment of Customer Funds and Credit Ratings
December 3, 2010

Summary of points from the comment letter:

  • Dreyfus suggests a concentration limit of 50 percent for government and agency money market funds, and 25 percent for prime and municipal money market funds.
  • Issuer-based concentration limits are unnecessary and "do not enhance the safety" of client assets.
  • Dreyfus would not support limiting permitted investments to U.S. Treasury funds, as other types of money market funds are "subject to sufficient risk-limiting constraints."
