The Michigan Liquid Asset Fund Plus ("MILAF+" or the "Trust") is a comprehensive cash management program created in 1987 by the Michigan Association of School Boards. The Trust was established for the purpose of allowing Michigan public agencies to pool their investment funds to seek the highest possible investment yield, while maintaining liquidity and preserving capital.
 
 

Investments designed for Michigan public agencies 

MILAF+ provides investments tailored to the specific needs of Michigan public agencies, investing only in instruments permitted under Michigan statutes. Investors benefit from the following options:

MILAF+ Portfolio This investment stresses "safety of principal" as its #1 objective - a fact underscored by its AAAm* rating from Standard & Poor's. This professionally managed portfolio offers three share classes:

  • Cash Management Class, designed for flexibility and liquidity, and provides unlimited check writing privileges;
  • MAX Class, which offers a competitive rate but comes with some restrictions; and
  •  
  • GovMIC Class**, which offers a competitive rate exclusively for governmental entities, including counties, municipalities, and townships/villages.

Michigan Term This fixed rate investment offers terms from 60 days to one year and is designed to match the cash flow requirements of Investors with the cash flows from the portfolio.

Specialized service options 

MILAF+ Investors also have access to a range of additional products authorized by the Board of Trustees and administered by PFM Asset Management LLC, the Investment Adviser of the Trust.

Distinctive structure, specialized focus 

MILAF+'s structure differs from that of its competitors, enabling the Trust to offer services exclusively to Michigan public agencies. These attributes set MILAF+ apart:

  • The MILAF+ Cash Management and MAX Classes are sponsored by the Michigan Association of School Boards (MASB), Michigan School Business Officials (MSBO), and the Michigan Association of School Administrators (MASA).  The GovMIC Class has no sponsors.
  • MILAF+ is owned and operated by the Trust's Investors, ensuring that the Trust remains focused on the particular needs of Michigan's public agency investors.
  • The Trust's Investors elect members of the Board of Trustees to govern MILAF - a Board that represents Investors of the Trust and representatives of MASB, MSBO, and MASA.
  • The Board of Trustees is responsible for overall management of the Trust, including formulation and implementation of investment and operating policies.

The MILAF+ Board selects various professional organizations to provide services to the Trust.
