For State Agencies: Intermediate Term Investments

For State Agencies: Intermediate Term Investments

Oregon State Treasury offers intermediate-term investment options to Government entities, when they have funds that they do not need to use immediately, and depending on the type of entity.

Those include:

a. The Oregon Local Government Intermediate Fund (OLGIF) for local governments, and
b. The Oregon Intermediate Term Pool (OITP) for State of Oregon agencies.

Local Government Intermediate Fund (OLGIF) Information

The Oregon Local Government Intermediate Fund (“OLGIF” or “Fund”) provides qualified local government participants with a vehicle to invest assets over an intermediate time horizon (three to five years). OLGIF is not appropriate for assets needed to cover short-term needs (less than one year). OLIGF is not structured to provide 100% net asset value (“NAV”) at all times on participant investments. Participants may experience losses on OLGIF investments due to changes in market conditions. Assets invested in OLGIF should be able to withstand greater price volatility to achieve the level of returns typically associated with longer-term investments.

OLGIF is actively managed to maintain a diversified portfolio of investment grade bond investments. Based on historical market performance, it is anticipated that the returns generated over extended periods will be greater in OLGIF than in shorter maturity vehicles such as the Oregon Short Term Fund (“OSTF”). The investment objective of OLGIF is to achieve a total return (i.e., principal and income) greater than the Barclays 1-5 Year U.S. Government/Credit Index (“Benchmark”).
