The article focuses on the report released by Moody's Investors Service stating that the institutional tax-free money market funds of the Gulf Coast states in the U.S. have experienced minimal impact during the active hurricane season. It contends that portfolio managers remained comfortable with their Gulf Coasts investments despite some who reduced their exposure to the region by putting bonds back at their next reset date.
