The California Debt and Investment Advisory Commission (CDIAC) is hosting a webinar series 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. The webinar series is as follows:

  • Webinar 1: Treasuries – May 21
  • Webinar 2: Agencies – June 17
  • Webinar 3: Municipals – June 24
  • Webinar 4: Money Markets
    • Part 1: Banker’s Acceptances, Commercial Paper – July 8
    • Part 2: Certificates of Deposit (CDs), Deposit Placement Services and Collateralized Bank Deposits – July 22
    • Part 3: Repos, Reverse Purchase Agreements and Securities Lending – August 5
  • Webinar 5: Corporates – August 19
  • Webinar 6: Asset-Backed Securities, Mortgage-Backed Securities, Collateralized Mortgage Obligations – September 2
  • Webinar 7: Mutual Funds, Money Market Mutual Funds and Local Government Pooled Investments – September 16
