Local Government Investment Pool

Providing local governments an opportunity to acquire maximum returns

LGIP is an investment mechanism authorized by the Legislature and signed into law on May 13, 1983, to provide local governments an opportunity to acquire maximum returns on investments by pooling available funds with funds from other political subdivisions. Section 6-6-10, Section 12-45-220 and Section 11-1-60 of the 1976 Code of Laws of South Carolina authorize the State Treasurer to sell to all political subdivisions of the State participation units in the Pool, which shall be legal investments for the subdivisions.

  • There are currently 614 accounts within the pool, totaling nearly $4.2 billion.
  • Participants include 83 municipalities, 44 school districts, 29 county treasurers, and 71 special purpose districts.
