State & Local Governments

Since we began offering investment advisory solutions in 1980, our primary focus has been on serving the public sector. Our resources and tools are built to evaluate investments with the risk tolerances, investment horizons, investment criteria and stakeholder views that public funds investors are required to adhere to.

Our experience in working with cities, counties, townships and other localities across the nation provides us with localized knowledge of investment policies and a deep understanding of the context in which finance directors, treasurers and other officials operate. We understand the challenges you face in investing operating funds, bond proceeds, reserve, retirement and other funds. Our process involves detailed cash flow analyses, understanding of state or entity-specific investment code and a holistic view of the organization’s finances.

Nationally, we are active participants in government organizations like the Government Finance Officers Association (GFOA) and its Committee on Treasury and Investment Management, helping to develop GFOA’s best practices related to investing public funds.
