Welcome to the California State Treasurer’s website for California’s stakeholders.
As California’s Treasurer, I appreciate your continued interest and the commitment to California’s success it demonstrates. Here’s a look at our accomplishments in 2019. The Treasurer provides financing for our schools, roads, housing, levees, public health facilities, and other crucial infrastructure projects that better the lives of all Californians.
The State Treasurer’s Office (STO) was created in the California Constitution in 1849. The STO processes more than $2 trillion in payments within a typical year and provides transparency and oversight for the government’s investment portfolio and accounts as well as for the state’s surplus funds.
The STO oversees an investment portfolio of more than $102 billion, approximately $20 billion of which are local government funds. We serve as the agent for the sale of all State bonds and are the trustee on over $100 billion of outstanding debt.
My office manages cash receipts for the state and manages bond issuances. In addition, the STO manages three savings programs helping individuals with disabilities, college, and private-employee retirement.
An integral part of my approach to this office is to be transparent, promote better access to the workings of this office, and build trust with the various stakeholders we interact with daily. I will always welcome your feedback on how we are doing.
By executing these responsibilities for California—the Golden State—my aim is to create tangible benefits for current and future generations of Californians. On behalf of them, I thank you for your interest and continued support.
