“In our opinion, The City of Edmonton has one of the most sophisticated investment management programs of all the cities we rate in the country.”
- Steve Ogilvie, Standard & Poor’s
The City of Edmonton takes investment of financial assets very seriously and has policies and procedures in place to maximize investment returns at a prudent level of overall risk.
Guided by these policies and procedures, the City manages its financial assets and builds upon them to contribute to its long-term financial sustainability.
The Investment Program plays a key part in The Way We Finance, one of the six strategic plans setting the course for the City to achieve its 10-year goals and city vision. The Way We Finance addresses Edmonton’s financial sustainability and the development of a long-range financial plan.
Being one of the key pieces that make up The Way We Finance, the Investment Program continues to help sustain Edmonton’s high quality of life through affordable and responsible financial strategies for generations to come.
