The FHLBNY Declares a 6.00% Dividend for the Third Quarter of 2017
I am pleased to announce that, on November 16, 2017, your Board of Directors approved a dividend for the third quarter of 2017 of 6.00% (annualized). The dollar amount of the dividend will be approximately $97.0 million. The cash dividend will be distributed to member financial institutions on November 17, 2017.
Strong advances activity drove our performance during the third quarter, as our members continued to access our liquidity to help meet their funding needs. The reliability of this access to our advances – along with our ability to provide a consistent and reasonable quarterly dividend – positions us as a trusted partner for our members.
We filed our Form 10-Q for the third quarter of 2017 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on November 9, 2017.
José R. González
President and Chief Executive Officer
