Investments & Treasury Management

Making the most of community resources.

Effectively managing your community’s cash-based assets –  general fund, enterprise funds, bond proceeds or idle cash balances – is critical to long-term financial stability. Our SEC Registered investment advisers seamlessly integrate with your Ehlers’ municipal advisor team to construct and manage investment policies and portfolios that seek to optimize allowable earnings, maintain liquidity, and comply with federal regulations.

Investment Services are provided by affiliate Ehlers Investment Partners.
