Description

New Investment Option - Corporate Notes to 3 years

HB 4573 just passed both the House and Senate and now sits on the Governor’s desk for signature.  If signed, this law will expand the term to invest in corporate obligations from 270 days to 3 years. This webinar will explain the pros and cons of investing in corporate obligations in order to earn more interest income.  Even if the law is not signed, a municipality may revise its investment policy under home rule authority to include corporate obligations out to 3 years as some municipalities have recently done.
