The Treasurer’s Office manages these portfolios in accordance with three objectives, in order of priority: safety of principal, liquidity, and yield. The State Treasury’s Liquidity Fund is invested primarily in money market instruments, including treasury bills, discount notes, commercial paper, repurchase agreements, money market mutual funds, and bank deposits. The State Treasury’s Long-Term Funds are invested primarily in U.S. treasury and federal agency obligations, and investment grade corporate bonds with maturities between two and five years. STAR Ohio is a statewide local government investment pool managed and administered by the Treasurer’s Office. STAR Ohio’s management strategy is similar, but not identical, to that of a registered money market fund. The Treasurer’s Office manages the fund to maintain S&P’s highest rating of AAAm. Participants utilize STAR Ohio as a short-term investment option.
