Information about the 13th annual Institute for International Research's Money Fund Forum that took place in New York in September 2007 is presented. Discussions about the marketability of tender option bond (TOB) pools were made by several money market portfolio managers. Some managers, however, were still found to be reluctant in investing in them because these pools are allegedly difficult to analyze in terms of Securities and Exchange Commission Rule 2a-7.
