The Office of the Chicago City Treasurer ("Treasurer") internally manages the City's investment portfolio with more than $7.978B AUM.

Broker Dealer RFI


The Office issues a Request for Information (RFI) questionnaire annually to facilitate annual qualification of each Broker Dealer interested in working with the City’s Investment Portfolio. The Office evaluates interested Broker Dealers based on criteria set by the City Treasurer, including the firm’s prior experience, financial stability, diversity and inclusion, corporate social responsibility and other requirements deemed necessary by the Office and the Municipal Code. The Treasurer’s Office is focused on providing business opportunities to firms based in Illinois and firms owned by minorities, women, veterans, and persons with a disability (MWVD).
