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.
