Liquidity, Diversification & Convenience of CalTRUST Funds Makes Them A Great Option For Property Tax Proceeds
The CalTRUST funds give local agencies a safe and convenient means of maintaining liquidity while also diversifying their investments. The CalTRUST Government Money Market Fund (MMF) and CalTRUST Heritage MMF, each rated "AAAm" and "Aaa" by S&P and Moody's, respectively, provide same-day liquidity, while the CalTRUST Short-Term Fund, rated "Aaf/S1+" by S&P, provides next-day liquidity. The CalTRUST Medium-Term Fund gives investors monthly liquidity.
Taken together, the CalTRUST funds give participants a highly-efficient means of allocating funds across the 0-5 year maturity range; and a cost-free means of reallocating among those options as local circumstances change.
Given this, CalTRUST is an ideal option for local agencies when it comes to the investment of property tax proceeds. To take maximum advantages of the benefits of CalTRUST, local agencies should ensure their investment policies authorize the use of CalTRUST. We would be happy to assist any interested agency; just contact one of the contacts listed below.
