HARTFORD, CONN (December 22, 2020) – Treasurer Cloud issued the following comments on COVID-19 and the status of operations of the City Treasurer’s Office.

Greetings, MERF Retirees and Active Members.  I hope this note finds you and your families safe and well.

Greetings. I hope this note finds you and your family well.

The spread of COVID-19 has disrupted daily life across the entire United States, including our great city of Hartford. Clearly, we remain in the midst of an extremely serious and grave public health crisis. I want to thank and commend everyone on the front lines providing health care, ensuring public safety, supporting our children through school closures and volunteering their time to lend a hand to a fellow citizen. I also applaud those working at grocery stores, pharmacies and elsewhere who are providing essential services to all.



HARTFORD, CONN (August 13, 2020) – Treasurer Cloud issued the following statement regarding the MERF Portfolio Market Value.


On August 10, the MERF’s investment portfolio was valued at one billion, sixty one million dollars, representing a post-Global Financial Crisis high.  This valuation reflects a sharp rebound back over the billion-dollar valuation mark that was last reached before the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic.  As I had communicated at that time, our prudent investment approach incorporating conservative positioning and an emphasis on liquidity, diversification and opportunistic risk taking would continue to serve us well.  To date, I am pleased to report that this approach has helped the MERF withstand the historic market turbulence of the last six months.  We will maintain this approach as we seek to ride out the remainder of this unprecedented crisis. I am proud of this accomplishment and credit the Pension Commission, my investment team and the continued funding provided by the City and our employees in helping to achieve this result.​
