Understanding the investment needs of Illinois public funds, the creators of IMET established a platform for competitive fund concepts to meet Illinois governments unique investing needs. IMET seeks to provide attractive options for investment of core cash, liquid funds, bond proceeds, capital funds and one-to-three year dollars. In addition, IMET seeks to provide tools and resources to help Illinois public entities with investing.

Separately Managed Accounts

IMET makes available to participants the option to utilize Separately Managed Accounts (SMA) from Meeder Public Funds.  Meeder Public Funds, Inc. offers a complete range of fixed income and cash management solutions, as well as equity portfolios. Interested IMET participants may directly engage Meeder to provide customized investment management services through a separately managed account (SMA), based on their own unique needs.                                                                                                Though Meeder also serves as the adviser of the IMET Core Fund, any SMA is managed exclusively                                                                                          by Meeder, separate from IMET.
