Money Market News


Money market fund yields have surged by 50 basis points since the Federal Reserve's 75-basis-point rate hike on June 15. The 7-Day Yield Average for our flagship Crane 100 Money Fund Index rose by 27 basis points to 1.15% in the week ended Friday, 6/24, after rising by 23 basis points on June 16 and 17. Last week was the first time money funds yielded over 1.0% since February 2020. The average has almost doubled from 0.58% on May 31, and is up from 0.21% on April 29, 0.15% on March 31 and 0.02% on February 28 (where it had been for almost 2 years prior). Brokerage sweep rates also jumped over the past week as Fidelity more than doubled its FDIC insured sweep rates, and Raymond James and Schwab also moved rates higher. Our latest Brokerage Sweep Intelligence shows most brokerages now paying an average of 0.11% or higher (on FDIC insured deposits), up from 0.04% a month ago. We review the latest money fund and brokerage sweep yields below.
