  14. SEC MMF Reform Comment Letters Fidelity: “The liquidity fees and redemption gates proposal is a more effective means to achieve the SEC’s goals than the floating NAV proposal. The SEC should adopt a fees and gates approach for institutional prime funds, with certain modifications.” J.P. Morgan A.M.: “JPMAM believes that in achieving the optimal balance of reducing systemic risk and preserving MMFs as an efficient and viable tool for investors and the financial markets, it is important to bear in mind that the reform of MMFs has been under discussion since the early days of the 2008 financial crisis.” Federated: “This is one of a series of letters from Federated Investors…. This letter addresses Federated’s comments regarding Alternative 2 of the Reform Proposal, which we regard as a more promising approach than any of the reform options previously included in the President’s Working Group on Financial Markets’ Report on Money Market Fund Reforms or in the recommendations considered by the Financial Stability Oversight Council.”
