Description: 

Finance officers must stay aware of the many factors that impact a government's investments, especially given the new investment landscape in the wake of the COVID-19 crisis. While the core principles of an investment strategy–liquidity, safety, and return–rest within a government’s investment policy, knowing about market conditions, current events, and investment products are important to ensure your entity's access to liquidity as well as maintain longer-term investment strategies. Speakers for this session will provide an economic update and expert predictions on interest rates and other factors related to government investing, provide an overview of new products that are being used by your peers, and engage in conversation about what governments need to do in order to prepare for investing post-COVID-19 crisis and in the years ahead.
