Dividend Announcement 1Q23
The FHLBNY Declares a 7.75% Dividend for the First Quarter of 2023
I am pleased to announce that, on May 16, 2023, our Board of Directors approved a dividend for the first quarter of 2023 of 7.75% (annualized). The dividend proceeds will be distributed to FHLBNY member financial institutions on May 17, 2023.
The Federal Home Loan Bank System’s foundational liquidity mission was on full display in the first quarter of 2023, as both FHLBNY members and local lenders across the nation looked to their Home Loan Bank as a reliable source of funding amid an unsettled and challenging market. At the FHLBNY, our ability to provide a consistent and reasonable dividend as both a return on our members’ investment in our cooperative and a factor in the overall cost of an advance is a key component of the value proposition that we offer to our members. However, the most significant value that members derive from their Home Loan Bank is access to on-demand liquidity in any and all operating environments – as we proved most recently in the first quarter of this year, and as the System has proven time and again throughout the past nine decades.
We filed our Form 10-Q for the first quarter of 2023 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on May 11, 2023.
José R. González
President and Chief Executive Officer
