The Council uses a number of methods to ensure we are looking after your money properly. Treasury Management is one of the key approaches.

Visit our Medium Term Financial Strategy (MTFS) and Budgets pages to find out more about other methods.

What is Treasury Management?

Treasury Management is where surplus funds are invested with external organisations, following strict creditworthiness criteria. Our investment policy is updated annually and approved by Council for the forthcoming year.

What we do

  • Each year through careful management we increase the Council's income by investing surplus funds
  • Our cash-flow is monitored on a daily basis and surplus funds are invested or recalled as necessary to ensure we achieve the best return on your money
  • We adopt a low risk investment policy whilst ensuring a good return on surplus funds.
