I'm just starting to research what to do with an inheritance I recently received in the form of assets in a brokerage account, and I've noticed that a lot of people seem to refer to "brokerage money market accounts" as "funds" and vice versa. Are such accounts really that different from a fund as far as interest rates are concerned? Should I consider transferring the cash assets to an actual money market fund until I decide on an investment strategy or leave them where they are (at least for now)?
