Stability, liquidity, and balance. Central depository investments provide BCIIF with the liquidity required to repay the federal IIP on scheduled repayment terms and honour its obligations to make committed but not-yet-called venture capital investments with selected funds.
Funds are invested in Government’s Central Deposit Program (CDP), which uses the short-term monies, primarily, for financing the Consolidated Revenue Fund and provides competitive returns to BCIIF.
The CDP provides the benefit of monies remaining available to the BCIIF for the purpose of liquidity and future investments. Monies in the CDP optimize deployment of cash in the government reporting entity by providing government with an internal short-term source of capital at a competitive rate which minimizes taxpayer-supported debt.
