Beryl -

Today I received the request for information you submitted via the Portage County website for information regarding the County's investment management provider etc. Attached, please find our most recent month-end and portfolio reports, which should answer some of the things you asked for. The firm we retain as our investment manager is Meeder Investment Management of Dublin, Ohio (see contact info below).

Your request asks for "all" reports relating to the portfolio...can you please clarify what you're looking for? That's fairly broad, and I would prefer not to send you information beyond the scope of what you're after.

As for SEC filings for the period January 2014 - August 2018, all relevant information would be available from our investment manager (no such information is maintained by our office).

Please let me know if you have any further questions, and I look forward to hearing from you.

My Best,

Brad Cromes, Portage Co. Treasurer
