Collateral Pool logo


In the summer of 2003, the Nevada legislature approved legislation to establish a program to monitor a collateral pool for public deposits. The program serves as an alternative method to allow financial institutions and local government agencies within the state to participate in pooled collateralization of their deposits in an efficient, cost effective and safe manner when collateralizing public funds.

    Objectives include:

    • Reduced risk for government agencies through collateral pool;
    • Centralized reporting function through State Treasurer's office.
    • Cost effective way for financial institutions to pledge collateral.
    • Acceptable securities will be pledged at a third party depository on behalf of the depository for the benefit of the State Treasurer to secure all public deposits.
