Mutual Fund Market News was launched at the annual Investment Company Institute General Membership Meeting in May 1993. The publication, which replaced Dalbar's FACS of the Week, was designed to be the mutual fund industry's newsweekly of record.
The publication, which at the time was an oversized, European-style tabloid, had a specific editorial mission and staff. Mutual Fund Market News, then as today, provided senior-level investment company and service provider executives with the news and information they needed to survive and thrive in the industry - even as it began its bull run ascent. New products, new trends, new hires and fires, legal and regulatory affairs, new distribution channels then, as today, were standard fare.
