VACo/VML Pooled OPEB Trust

The Virginia Pooled OPEB Trust Fund is the largest OPEB investment pool in the U.S. With more than $1 billion in assets, we’re the #1 choice of Virginia localities and authorities looking to invest in a professionally-managed, high earning trust to offset their OPEB liabilities.

VIP – The Virginia Investment Pool

VIP is an investment pool designed by local Treasurers and chief investment officers specifically for Virginia local governments and authorities. Whether you are looking for a stable value fund for day-to-day cash flow requirements or a fund with a longer investment horizon and higher expected return, we have you covered. Invested assets reached $1.5 billion in 2018.

Accounting Services

VML/VACo Finance places seasoned accountants in a variety of local assignments. We assist localities with pre-audit support, supplementing local finance staffs, and filling vacant positions on an interim basis. VML/VACo recently led the accounting team on a major municipal turnaround effort that enabled a locality to catch-up on its seriously past-due financial statements and obtain a clean audit opinion.
