Our Guiding Principles

The Office of the State Treasurer Arizona never loses sight of the fact that the money it manages belongs to taxpayers. That understanding and commitment forges our guiding principles:

Safety before Liquidity before Yield Web

Safety – The Treasurer’s first responsibility is to protect taxpayer dollars


Security – Invest in high-quality, investment-grade investments to minimize risk


Performance – Investment officers strategically plan to produce the highest possible yields


Accountability – Precise distributions to local governments and public schools and precise accounting to facilitate state agency withdrawals


Integrity – Responsible to follow all state laws and communicate honestly with the public


Transparency – Open books for public inspection of how we manage taxpayer dollars
