  • The high data frequency not only helps to validate our results, but also allows us to advance some analysis. For example, in Chapter 5, the fund weekly data are used to calculate the risk-adjusted abnormal return for each year from 2000-2007. Then, it turns into a panel data allowing us to perform a multidimensional (panel) regression on fund characteristics. Furthermore, this is the first empirical study of an emerging market which includes flexible funds in the sample. In theory, a flexible fund is in some ways similar to equity funds since its main assets are also stocks.

  • The Reserve Fund was only the second MMMF to break the buck since the SEC adopted rules governing these funds in 1983, with the first being the Community Bankers US Government Fund in 1994. 6 Both funds had losses significant enough to cause them to break the buck and sponsors that were unable to provide non-contractual support to prevent the losses from being passed on to shareholders.
