Mutual Funds

  • NEW YORK— They're hot, yet many investors have no idea what they do. These mutual funds go by a few names, and it doesn't help that some are inscrutable like "liquid alts," but they generally fall under an umbrella known as alternative mutual funds. Investors plugged a net $35 billion into alternative mutual funds over the last 12 months, according to Morningstar.

  • Total U.S. money market mutual fund assets fell $2.18 billion to $2.56 trillion for the week that ended Wednesday, according to the Investment Company Institute. Assets in the nation's retail money market mutual funds fell $2.84 billion to $896.27 billion, the Washington- based mutual fund trade group said Thursday.

  • WASHINGTON, July 23- U.S. regulators adopted moderate reforms for money market mutual funds on Wednesday, in what amounted to a compromise that aims to balance the need to reduce the risk of runs on the funds while still protecting the product's utility for investors.
