  • adopting Bloomberg AusBond Bank Bill Index as the performance industry index.

The draft Investment policy can be viewed on Council’s website and at Council’s Customer Service Centre 65 Homebush Road, Strathfield.  Due to COVID measures individual hard copies of the draft policy will be provided on request at Customer Service Centre.
