About One Investment
You need to generate revenue to fund infrastructure projects that benefit your community. And you need to do all of this in a way that mitigates risk.
ONE Investment is here to help. Formed as “ONE – The Public Sector Group of Funds” in 1993 by Local Authority Services (LAS) and CHUMS Financing Corp. (a subsidiary of the Municipal Finance Officers’ Association of Ontario), we have always focused on one thing: providing investment options that support the needs of Ontario’s municipalities.
Serving Ontario’s municipalities for more than 25 years
With more than 25 years of experience serving the sector, ONE Investment understands the needs of municipalities. Today, ONE Investment offers municipalities and municipal treasurers:
- A wide range of investment products
- In-person and online education and training opportunities
- One-on-one input supporting Council investment decisions
- Tools and templates to support reporting back to council
Since the 1990’s, we have offered a Money Market portfolio and Bond portfolio. Over the years, we expanded our investment offerings with an Equity portfolio in 2007 and a Universe Corporate Bond portfolio in 2008. In 2010, we rebranded to “ONE Investment Program”. In 2015, we introduced a high-interest savings account (HISA) which offers a competitive rate for short term monies. For over a decade, the Peer Advisory committee comprised of Municipal Finance representatives across the province has been providing ONE feedback regarding investments from the municipal perspective. In 2016, the Investment Advisory committee comprised of industry experts was formed, allowing us to once again enhance the governance structure of the ONE Investment.
In 2018, we incorporated ONE Investment as a not-for-profit organization; a change that allows us to broaden our investment options and offer formal investment advice to municipalities.
ONE Investment’s Mission is to sustainably service the investing needs of the Ontario municipal sector by providing legally compliant investment opportunities that meet municipal objectives and by building sector capacity.
