Quarterly Earnings Call
On Friday, May 1, 2015, Treasurer Summers held our City’s first-ever Quarterly Earnings Call and webcast. The call, with an accompanied webcast presentation, provided overviews of the global and national economies as well as Chicago’s current fiscal landscape. On a quarterly basis, this new call will serve as a way to share the financial performance of Chicago’s investment portfolio.
“During my 77 visits to Chicago’s 77 communities, the top recommendation heard around the city was for greater transparency and accountability from their financial steward,” Treasurer Summers said. “Taxpayers of Chicago deserve an open dialogue about the City’s investments, finances and local economy and this new earnings call is no different than any investment firm or public company being held accountable to its investors.”
