General Fund Investment Program

The Bucks County Treasurer's Office is responsible for the General Fund Investment Program. The County's investment policy is established by a three-member board consisting of the Treasurer, the Chair of the Board of Commissioners, and the Controller. The three primary objectives of the program are:

  1. Safety of Principal
  2. Maintain sufficient liquidity to support County operations
  3. Earn a fair rate of return, benchmarked by the 13-week Treasury bill

All investments must be legally allowed under the County Code in addition to approved by the County investment policy. Allowable investments include collateralized bank deposits, certificates of deposit, US Treasury Bills, US Agency notes, and A1/P1 commercial paper.
