CFO Atwater's Letter about Investing in Israel


    ​Dear Consul General Shacham,

    As Florida's Chief Financial Officer, I oversee the state Treasury, and together, we make decisions on how to invest or deposit public funds with the goal of maximizing the state investment pool's earning potential.
    On August 1, I am pleased to share that the state Treasury increased its investment in Israel Bonds by $5 million and reinvested an existing $5 million in maturing bonds. These bonds are widely recognized as one of Israel's most valued economic resources and a catalyst for its rapid economic evolution.
    I am confident that this wise investment will allow us to show our support for one of our nation's most important allies in the Middle East and secure state funds in a strategic resource with a proven track record for financial gain.
    Jeff Atwater
    Chief Financial Officer
