Our Three Pillars for Success:

We understand that public dollars must be managed securely and efficiently. The CalTRUST Board, comprised of experienced investment officers and policy makers, works closely with our investment manager, State Street Global Advisors, to ensure that our Investment Policy is in full compliance with California Government Code 53601 and 53605. Each of our funds seeks to attain as high a level of current income as is consistent with preservation of principal and aligned with the public agency funds guidepost of Safety, Liquidity, and Yield.

Safety

Our primary objective is to safeguard the preservation of principal, ensuring that our Investment Policy is consistent with California law.

Liquidity

Our fund choices offer same-day, next-day, and three-day liquidity to meet your needs.

Yield

Our funds consistently outperform our benchmarks as we maximize yield as best possible consistent with safety and liquidity.
