The Director of Resources submitted a report seeking approval for the Council’s Capital and Treasury Management Strategy for the 2021/22 financial year that had been reviewed.
The Strategy reflected the linkage between asset management, the capital programme and our treasury management activities and was intended to set the framework for all aspects of the Council’s capital expenditure including planning, management, prioritisation, funding, monitoring and outcomes.
It also provided the policy framework for the engagement of the council with financial markets in order to fund its capital programme, maintain the security of its cash balances and protect them from credit, liquidity and interest rate risk.
Members discussed the issue of supranational bonds and whether these were required by the Council.
*** RESOLVED THAT COMMITTEE:
Recommend to Council the Capital and Treasury Management Strategy as outlined with the deletion of the paragraph relating to supranational bonds (page 23 of the Strategy).
