07:45 EDTSCHW, BXSEC to approve money fund rules with exemptions for discount brokers, WSJ says
New money-market mutual fund rules that are expected to be approved at a Securities and Exchange Commission meeting on Wednesday will exempt discount brokers like Charles Schwab (SCHW) from some provisions, reported The Wall Street Journal. Under the SEC's planned rules, "prime" money funds that are held by corporations and institutional investors will have to abandon a fixed $1-a-share price and float in value like other mutual funds, according to the report, citing people familiar with the matter. Analysts said Schwab and other large money-fund sponsors, Vanguard and Fidelity, would do well under the plan, according to the report. Blackstone (BX) also offers money-market mutual funds.

06:46 EDTSCHWFee prices on mutual funds, ETFs sliding towards zero, WSJ says
There is intense fee price competition occurring in the asset management sector as several fund firms, including BlackRock (BLK), Charles Schwab (SCHW), and others, cut fees on their passive products close to 0%, the Wall Street Journal reports. The competition is suppressing industry margins and building a greater impetus for firms to achieve scale, the report says. The slide in costs have been under way for years but is accelerating as the sector's largest companies are targeting increasingly cost-obsessed investors, the report says. Over 100 mutual funds and exchanged-traded funds currently cost $10 or less per $10,000 invested, up from 40 in 2010, the report says, citing Morningstar. Reference Link
