education programs banner

The pace of change and the associated impacts on business can be difficult for financial institutions to monitor and manage. The Federal Home Loan Bank of New York (FHLBNY) has a diverse membership and closely monitors the operating landscape of all our members to help them turn challenges into opportunities. We encourage you to take full advantage of your membership and use our Education Programs to assist with your strategic planning.

Our corporate headquarters in New York City is offered as a meeting location if we can accomodate your group and program. 
See below to learn more about the types of programs we offer.

Member-Director Education Sessions

Member-Director Education sessions are specifically created for our members' board of directors and management team. These sessions can be added as an educational segment to your existing board meetings. Programming is custom-tailored to demonstrate how the FHLBNY can be leveraged to better serve the interests and the fiduciary needs of your customers and shareholders, and ensure that your institution is getting the most out of its membership in our cooperative.

  • FHLBank System overview — earnings and financial highlights, including the FHLBank Debt Issuance Program, Washington Update and more
  • FHLBNY membership overview — benefits and trends, and how our partnership with local lenders is unique
  • FHLBNY products, services, and programs review — Advance Product offerings and usage trends, Letters of Credit, secondary market outlets, housing and community development lending, etc.

Strategic Financial Planning Workshops

Strategic Financial Planning Workshops, coordinated in partnership with financial consulting firms, are hands-on workshops that take a deep dive into strategies specific to your institution to help you gain and maintain sustainable earnings growth.
Typically workshops are held at an off-site location that is convenient for your institution. A portion of applicable consultant fees may be passed on to you to develop your custom-tailored program.

Funding Solutions Sessions

Funding Solutions Sessions are frequently provided throughout the year in varying formats — one-on-one with a member or in a group setting either by District location and/or by membership sector. Your Relationship Manager builds the program based on your specific needs in conjunction with the FHLBNY's leadership team. The program typically consists of a recap of the funding and operating environment, trends the FHLBNY is seeing across the industry and our cooperative, peer analysis of your membership sector and how they are taking advantage of our products and services to help achieve their business goals.
The program can also focus on a particular area or topic of interest — liquidity management, branch funding, the secondary market and generating mortgage loan growth, expanding housing and community growth opportunities, etc. 

Municipality Education Meetings

Municipality Education meetings are held with members to help support business with their municipal customers. The FHLBNY will cover how the FHLBank System works, the potential advantages of the FHLBNY’s Municipal Letters of Credit to both the municipality and member, the importance of the product’s triple-A rating, and the mechanics of the issuance process.
“We were very pleased that the President of the FHLBNY and their management team were present at the meeting, and that they treated our very small credit union ($15 million in assets) and our Board of Directors the same way as they treat any other financial institution. It was a great experience and we are very thankful.” – Mira Ness, President & CEO, NYU Federal Credit Union, New York, NY
