Finance
Level: 
Intermediate
Description: 

Finance officers must stay aware of the many factors that impact a government's investments.  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 is just as important in determining if there are opportunities for core investing beyond liquidity. 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 in the next decade.
