 Investing in short-term fixed income investments 

 

 

Investing in short-term fixed income assets can be tricky in a market environment with relatively low interest rates. As government investment professionals, this challenge is even greater given the fiduciary responsibility of safeguarding public funds. 


This session will take a look at the current markets and the economy, and cover relevant investment philosophy and process. Included in the session will be an overview of the Florida Trust and their various investment pools.
