  1. 12. Consideration for Approval of Proposed District Investment Program

Mr. Moya presented Dan Klus and Michael Nguyen of RBC Global Assets.  Approximately a year ago the Board was informed about an investment strategy—an investment policy has also been worked on.  Board policy requires that quarterly investment reports be given—as well as review the investment strategy and bring it forward for approval.   Mr. Klus began by saying that their asset advisory group works closely with Mr. Paul Cassidy (RBC Capital Market side).  Mr. Michael Nguyen discussed the US economy’s continued healing with the committee.  Mr. Klus discussed the first recommendation, which involves a 36-month portfolio—investing $35M, generating $115,000 in interest income.  Option two is a 48-month portfolio, which would generate approximately $182,000.  Mr. Moya discussed as the cash balance procedural directive is brought forward, a 5% floor will be proposed—cash balance limits were removed.   Mr. Moya would like to take the 5% goal and turn it into a floor so that the balance does not fall below 5%--will lend itself to a liquidity baseline for the general fund.   Mr. Nguyen discussed that the Treasury Market is very active—as active managers, RBC employs their methodology/investment approach in terms of where money is placed in the yield curve.  Mr. Klus added that the biggest challenge is to be prudent and not take what would be considered an interest rate risk.  Mr. Moya recommended that the Investment Strategy be approved and proceed with the very safe and liquid Treasury Investment Plan.

 

Mr. Robbins motioned for approval of the Proposed District Investment Program with Ms. Maes seconding the motion in the affirmative.  Motion carried.
