Federal Home Loan Bank Advances Decline by 6 Percent in 1Q17

The Federal Home Loan Bank System saw a 6 percent decline in advances during the first quarter of 2017. The FHLBankís Office of Finance reported that advances, which stood at $660.7 billion, decreased from $705.2 billion in the previous quarter, primarily because there was less demand by the larger bank members. In fact, all of the banks witnessed a decrease in advances with the exception of two. The FHLBank of Indianapolis and FHLBank of Topeka both had a slight uptick in the volume of advances taken, growing from $28.0 million to $29.6 billion and $23.9 billion to $25.8 billion, respectively.

10% or less. It’s not that bad out there.
11% to 25%. It’s a challenging market.
25% to 40%. It’s going to be very ugly.
No opinion.
