Promoting prudent financial practices

The achievement and performance of the nation’s state treasurers shapes every aspect of the states’ fiscal strength. The office is a highly sophisticated organization with a wide range of financial responsibilities, including managing the investment of all state funds, issuing bonds, serving as the central bank for state agencies and administering programs such as college savings and unclaimed property. Treasurers provide crucial expertise by chairing and serving on state boards, commissions and authorities charged with financial management of various entities.

Treasurers further serve citizens by promoting and conducting financial education initiatives in areas such as personal money management, saving and asset building, investment planning, credit management and homeownership. Many Treasurers plan conferences that address the special financial challenges that women face in their work and personal lives as family money managers. Some Treasurers have statutory responsibility for leadership, expert and/or resource coordination and allocation roles in the delivery of some or all financial education programs in their states.
