Federal Home Loan Bank of New York
Announces Third Quarter 2022 Operating Highlights
New York, NY – The Federal Home Loan Bank of New York (“FHLBNY”) today released its unaudited financial highlights for the quarter ended September 30, 2022.
“At the recent Listening Sessions for the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s FHLBank System at 100: Focusing on the Future initiative, members from across the System and the FHLBNY spoke of the critical nature of Home Loan Bank liquidity and the importance of the reliability of our cooperatives,” said José R. González, president and CEO of the FHLBNY. “As our members have increasingly looked to the FHLBNY as a trusted and stable funding partner amid the volatility in the markets, our results for the third quarter reflect that we have consistently answered the call.”
Highlights from the third quarter of 2022 include:
- Net income for the quarter was $129.5 million, an increase of $63.7 million, or 96.8%, from net income of $65.8 million for the third quarter of 2021. Net interest income for the quarter was $168.8 million, an increase of $39.0 million, or 30.0%, from $129.8 million in the third quarter last year. The increase in Net interest income was driven primarily by the impact of higher market interest rates and larger earning asset balances; average advances balances were $11.2 billion higher than the prior year period. Non-interest income increased by $32.6 million compared with the third quarter of 2021, driven primarily by an increase in fair value of derivatives and instruments held under the fair value option. These gains were largely offset by declines in fair value of U.S. Treasury securities held for liquidity purposes as interest rates increased.
- Return on average equity (“ROE”) for the quarter was 7.39% (annualized), compared to ROE of 3.95% for the third quarter of 2021.
- As of September 30, 2022, total assets were $130.1 billion, an increase of $24.7 billion, or 23.4%, from total assets of $105.4 billion at December 31, 2021. As of September 30, 2022, advances were $91.9 billion, an increase of $20.3 billion, or 28.4%, from $71.5 billion at December 31, 2021. The increase in advances balances is a result of the current economic environment, as members experience heightened deposit volatility and strong loan growth, and are enhancing liquidity positions.
- As of September 30, 2022, total capital was $7.2 billion, an increase of $0.8 billion from total capital of $6.4 billion at December 31, 2021. The FHLBNY’s retained earnings increased during the quarter by $97.6 million to $2.0 billion as of September 30, 2022, of which $1.1 billion was unrestricted retained earnings and $0.9 billion was restricted retained earnings. At September 30, 2022, the FHLBNY met its regulatory capital ratios and liquidity requirements.
- The FHLBNY allocated $14.4 million from its third quarter 2022 earnings for its Affordable Housing Program.
The FHLBNY currently expects to file its Form 10-Q for the third quarter of 2022 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission by November 10, 2022.
