Finance and Investments Committee

The purpose of the Finance and Investments Committee is to advise the ABRF Treasurer and Executive Board on investment opportunities for the funds of the ABRF.  The reserve account is conservatively managed with the goal of maintaining sufficient funds for at least two years of operating expenses.  In addition annual gains, when available, are expected to supplement ABRF income for operations.  Investments are allocated between money market , stock index, mixed, international and bond funds to meet a diversified, moderate-conservative portfolio.  The committee also reviews the ABRF annual budget providing input to the Treasurer.
