5 smart things to know about money markets

Posted by: Uma Shashikant on Apr 24, 2017, 06.30 AM IST

1. Money market is a section of the debt market which specialises in very short-term debt securities with maturities of less than one year.

2. The objective of a money market is to utilise every rupee for every day. Entities deploy surplus cash or borrow on an overnight basis.

3. It matches the demand for and supply of short-term funds and borrowers and lenders tend to reverse roles often depending on their liquidity needs.

4. It is a complete need-based market rather than a view based in nature and is liquidity driven, rates are determined by demand-supply of money.

5. It is a wholesale market and the only way a retail investor can participate in this market is through liquid mutual funds.
