FHLB Bank, Thrift Advances Rise in Fourth Quarter, 2013

The use of Federal Home Loan Bank advances by bank and thrift members at the end of 2013 rose on both quarterly and yearly bases, according to the Inside Mortgage Finance Bank Mortgage Database. The nation’s banks and thrifts used a combined $406.1 billion in advances as of Dec. 31, 2013, up 26.7 percent from the third quarter and a 21.6 percent increase from the same period a year earlier. Two of the top three members posted virtually no change on a percentage basis between the third and fourth quarters but all three posted significant increases on a year-over-year basis.

After the November elections, how long will it take for a new Congress and White House to pass GSE reform legislation?

I’m confident a bill will be passed the first year.


2 to 3 years. GSE reform is complicated.


Sadly it won’t happen in a Clinton or Trump first term.


Not in my lifetime.
