The Public Investment Portfolio A Step-By-Step Examination of Public Investment Securities


May 21, 2015 to September 16, 2015

This webinar series is designed to guide public agencies in the development and management of an investment portfolio. Public fund management in California allows for the investment officer to select instruments set forth in Government Code. Each investment instrument comes with a differing level of risk, requiring public investors to undertake a full assessment of each. These webinars will examine each instrument type, review the statutory authority, and analyze how the investment’s features may or may not achieve a local agency’s investment policy objectives.
