(A)   The city recognizes that some level of risk is inherent in any investment transaction. Losses may be incurred due to issuer default, market price charges or closing investments prior to maturity due to unanticipated cash flow needs. Diversification of the city's investment portfolio by institution, type of investment instrument and term to maturity is the primary method to minimize investment risk.
   (B)   To the extent possible, the city will attempt to match its investments with anticipated cash flow requirements. Unless matched to a specific cash flow need, the city's funds should not, in general, be invested in securities maturing more than one (1) year from the date of purchase. However, the city may collateralize its repurchase agreements using longer-dated investments not to exceed one (1) year to maturity. Reserve funds may be invested in securities exceeding one (1) five year, if maturity of the investments is made to coincide as nearly as practicable with the expected use of the funds.
