CFA Practice Question

Mutual funds that allow deposits and withdrawals with minimal transactions fees ______

A. serve as a medium of exchange and should be counted as part of the M-1 measure of the money supply.
B. serve as a medium of exchange and should not be counted as part of the M-2 measure of the money supply.
C. offer great liquidity so that owners of the mutual funds have quick and cheap access to additional purchasing power.
Correct Answer: C

Low-cost mutual funds are an asset that provides a high degree of liquidity and quick and cheap access to purchasing power that augments the money supply. This indicates the limitations of monetary policy, as central banks have no control over this.

cbb1 Mutual funds are not part of M-1, M-2 or M-3 and are not a medium of exchange.
bobert Money market mutual funds are included in M2.
magicchip bobert is right. M2 includes MM funds.
DannyZhou The last one is a better choice since the question didn't specify it is a money market mutual fund.
