Federal Home Loan Bank of New York
Announces First Quarter 2021 Operating Highlights

New York, NY – The Federal Home Loan Bank of New York (“FHLBNY”) today released its unaudited financial highlights for the quarter ended March 31, 2021.

“One year ago, amid as volatile and uncertain a market as we have ever experienced, our members looked to the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York for liquidity support at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said José R. González, president and CEO of the FHLBNY. “In the year since, the FHLBNY has remained a stable and reliable partner to our members and the communities we serve, as reflected in our results for the first quarter of 2021. From the liquidity provided through our advances to the secondary market support offered through our Mortgage Asset Program (MAP®) and to the tangible community impact made through our Affordable Housing Program (AHP), Homebuyer Dream Program® (HDP®) and Small Business Recovery Grant Program (SBRG), we remain focused on delivering the full value of our cooperative to our members every day.”

Highlights from the first quarter of 2021 include:

 

Net income for the quarter was $72.2 million, a decrease of $32.9 million, or 31.3 percent, from net income of $105.1 million for the first quarter of 2020. Net interest income after provision for credit losses was higher by $7.1 million. Non-interest income declined by $40.3 million compared with the first quarter of 2020, driven primarily by a decline on the fair values of derivatives and interest accruals on economic hedges. While the fair value of U.S. Treasury securities held in trading for liquidity purposes declined, these securities were economically hedged and the fair value changes of those swaps almost entirely offset the change in value of the Treasury securities. Return on average equity (“ROE”) for the quarter was 4.06 percent (annualized), compared to ROE of 5.57 percent for the first quarter of 2020.

 

As of March 31, 2021, total assets were $130.3 billion, a decrease of $6.7 billion, or 4.9 percent, from total assets of $137.0 billion at December 31, 2020. The decrease was driven primarily by a decline in assets held for liquidity purposes. The total balances of Securities purchased under agreements to resell, Fed funds sold and U.S. Treasury securities were $18.1 billion as of March 31, 2021, a decrease of $4.6 billion, or 20.2 percent, from $22.7 billion at December 31, 2020. As of March 31, 2021, advances were $90.1 billion, a decrease of $2.0 billion, or 2.0 percent, from $92.1 billion at December 31, 2020.

 

As of March 31, 2021, total capital was $7.2 billion, a decrease of $0.1 billion from total capital of $7.3 billion at December 31, 2020. The FHLBNY’s retained earnings were relatively unchanged during the quarter at $1.9 billion as of March 31, 2021, of which $1.1 billion was unrestricted retained earnings and $788.7 million was restricted retained earnings. At March 31, 2021, the FHLBNY met all of its regulatory capital ratios.

 

The FHLBNY allocated $8.0 million from its first quarter 2021 earnings for its Affordable Housing Program.

The FHLBNY currently expects to file its Form 10-Q for the second quarter of 2020 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on or before August 7, 2020.
