has been ranked as the third largest family-owned fund company in the U.S. and the largest family-owned fund company in New York, according to Strategic Insight.
The Reserve, the cash management leader and inventor of the money market fund, today announced that it has been ranked as the third largest family-owned fund company in the U.S. and the largest family-owned fund company in New York.*
“Being the creator of the world’s first money market fund and now the third largest family-owned fund company in the U.S. is quite an honor,” said Bruce Bent, founder and Chairman of The Reserve. “We are proud to have stuck with our core expertise and focused on the cash management needs of our clients.”
The ranking announcement comes on the heels of The Reserve’s assets surpassing $80 billion, a 60% increase year-to-date. The record growth in assets enjoyed by The Reserve far exceeds the growth in the money market fund industry, which has increased by more than 20% in 2007, surpassing $3 trillion, an industry record.
According to Bent, The Reserve has seen consistent growth across each of its distribution channels including institutional: up $26 billion or 125%, banking: up $2 billion or 57%, and retail: up $5.8 billion or 26%. He attributes this to the firm’s approach in supporting its partners and investors’ increased appreciation for integrity of portfolio management.
