Investment Program

Metro’s Investment Program encompasses those assets managed internally by Treasury Department staff and by external investment managers. The short-term portfolios managed internally are earmarked to cover near-term operating expenses. The externally managed portfolios are invested in medium to long-term higher yielding investments.

Metro’s annual budget sets transportation priorities across LA County for the coming year.
