Request for Proposals for Investment Advisory Services
The City of Fullerton is seeking proposals from qualified investment advisory firms for portfolio management services for approximately $90 million in cash and investments. The City's primary investment objective is to achieve a reasonable rate of return on public funds while minimizing the potential for capital losses arising from market changes or issuer default. Although the generation of revenues through interest earnings on investments is an appropriate City goal, the primary consideration in the investment of City funds is capital preservation in the overall portfolio. As such, the City's yield objective is to achieve a reasonable rate of return on City investments rather than the maximum generation of income, which could expose the City to unacceptable levels of risk.
