Update to the Member Products Guide & Correspondent Services Manual
The Federal Home Loan Bank of New York (FHLBNY) has updated its Member Products Guide (Guide) and the Correspondent Services Manual (Manual). The guide and the manual detail the FHLBNY’s credit, collateral and correspondent services standards and can assist you in finding helpful information on FHLBNY’s product and services matters (e.g. requirements for advance borrowings, eligible collateral types and service fee schedules).
Both documents can be found by signing on to 1Link®, our internet banking system, and clicking on the ‘Manuals and Guides’ tab. The guide is updated as needed throughout the year. The newly published version of the guide reflects changes to FHLBNY’s products and services.
Changes to the Member Products Guide include:
Updates to the following sections effective as of January 2020:
Prepayment Of Advances: Update to section “Non-Contractual Prepayment” regarding financial terms for credit products that may require modification due to the LIBOR transition (page 20)
Special Provisions: Update to section “LIBOR Cessation” (formerly known as “LIBOR Transition (Impact on Credit Products)”) regarding financial terms for credit products that may require modification due to the LIBOR transition (page 31)
Special Provisions: Update to section entitled “Risk Factors Relating to General Home Loan Bank of New York Adjustable Rate Credit Advances” highlighting potential risks associated with variable rate products (page 32)
All changes to the Correspondent Services Manual are considered conforming in nature.
