What is STAR Ohio?
The State Treasury Asset Reserve of Ohio (STAR Ohio) is an investment fund that allows government subdivisions—from municipalities to school districts—to invest funds in a highly rated public investment pool. Since 1995, it has maintained Standard & Poor’s highest rating and given government subdivisions greater returns on their invested funds.







Goal
The Ohio Treasury acts as an adviser and administrator of STAR Ohio. The investment objectives of STAR Ohio are the preservation of capital, the maintenance of liquidity, and providing current income. The STAR Program provides Ohio governmental subdivisions the ability to invest in high-grade, short-term securities and offers shareholders safety, penalty free liquidity and comparatively higher yields.

How it helps
STAR Ohio’s AAAm rating by Standard & Poor’s proves that investments are safe and secure in the fund. What’s more, the fund generally offers higher yields than conventional investment vehicles because of the increased earning power of a sizable pool.
