Establishing an Investment Program

Establishing an Investment Program
Saturday, May 5, 2018: 8:30 am - 12:30 pm Governments should have an investment policy in place to ensure the appropriate safeguarding of public funds. GFOA's best practices on developing an investment program and investment policy identify essential components needed in a policy, including scope and investment objectives, suitable and authorized investments, investment diversification, risk and performance standards, and suggestions about how to work with outside professionals for comment or review. This session will cover GFOA's best practices, provide standards for how governments should approach developing or updating a current policy, and deliver key examples about how to implement an investment policy that addresses not only a government's unique needs, but market products and conditions as well.
