Welcome Letter

Welcome to the State of California’s and the State Treasurer’s investor relations website.  I appreciate your interest and investment in California’s bonds.  Your investment allows us to proceed with critical funding decisions affecting schools, roads, housing, levees, public facilities, and other crucial infrastructure projects throughout the Golden State.    

This website provides a comprehensive site for investors to view information about the State’s finances, financial disclosure information, and upcoming bond offerings. Previously, users had to locate and compile this information from multiple California State agency websites and external sources.

My office is committed to being transparent with the investor community and public at large. Please do not hesitate to contact the State Treasurer’s Office with feedback on how to improve our information and outreach.  

Thanks again for your interest in our bond program.  By investing in California bonds you are creating a benefit for future generations of Californians.
