From: Beryl Lipton

Hello Ms. Merser,

Thank you for your time on the telephone today. Please let me know if there is any further information or clarification that I can provide to you or the Phoenix Finance Department.

Have a lovely evening,
Beryl

From: Kristen Merser

Hi Beryl,

The Finance Department provided the following information:
Attached is our custodian report from J.P. Morgan of the general City investments that are managed by City of Phoenix internal staff.

Do you know if Ms. Lipton also wants investments from our trust portfolios such as MERP, LTD and COPERS? Those are managed by the various trust boards. Finance would be the contact for MERP and LTD and Retirement would be the contact for COPERS.

Please let me know if the attached report will suffice or if you would like the additional information.

Thank you,
