City Council Regular Meeting
Meeting Date: 06/07/2022  

BACKGROUND
The Investment Policy and Strategy of the City of Schertz guides staff in investing city funds. Much of the policy is outlined by the Public Funds Investment Act which ensures public entities make safe choices as to how they invest. The top priority with regard to investable public funds in both the Act and the City policy is the safety of the funds invested. This means low risk investments that can be easily withdrawn in the event the City needs funding, In order to purchase securities as investment opportunities, the City must go through an investment broker. These firms purchase investment securities in the market on the City's behalf and provide detail research and help us make better decisions to fit our needs. The City of Schertz Investment Policy and Broker list requires an annual reaffirmation by City Council. The Investment policy requires an annual review of the policy. After reviewing the policy, applicable statuses, and the current economic environment, the Investment Advisory Committee has recommended no changes to the current policy and strategy.
