Treasury investment professionals handle cash management and short-term investing; however, for longer-term investment portfolios, Treasury uses the services of external investment managers.
These firms manage their assigned portfolios subject to oversight by Treasury’s Investment Committee and financial advisors. Specific duties include:
Discretionary investment management (decisions to buy, sell, or hold individual securities);
Submit investment performance reports;
Notify Treasury of any significant external factors, such as major changes in economic outlook or capital market trends, that may affect the investment portfolio; and
Notify the Deputy State Treasurer for Investments and the Investment Committee, in writing, when external events have caused the manager’s portfolio to include securities that are no longer consistent with the portfolio’s intended composition or discipline.
