Retail money funds, also known as retail prime money market funds, are investment vehicles that are designed to provide individual investors with a low-risk option for earning a return on their cash investments. They are similar to institutional money funds in that they invest in a diversified portfolio of high-quality, short-term debt instruments, such as commercial paper, certificates of deposit, and Treasury bills. However, they are typically available to individual investors through brokers, financial advisors, or mutual fund companies, and may have different features and requirements compared to institutional money funds.
Like institutional money funds, retail money funds aim to maintain a stable net asset value (NAV) of $1 per share and to provide investors with a relatively low level of volatility and a stable stream of income.
Retail money funds can have an impact on the stock market in a number of ways. First, they can provide a source of liquidity for the market, as individual investors may use them to manage their cash needs and to meet redemption requests from investors. In addition, changes in the demand for retail money funds can affect the supply of cash in the market, which can in turn affect the demand for other assets, such as stocks.
