The FHLBNY Declares a 5.00% Dividend for the First Quarter of 2017
I am pleased to announce that, on May 17, 2017, your Board of Directors approved a dividend for the first quarter of 2017 of 5.00% (annualized). The dollar amount of the dividend will be approximately $76.6 million. The cash dividend will be distributed to member financial institutions on May 18, 2017.
The solid performance of our core business throughout the first quarter, combined with our strong capital position and low-risk profile, grants the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York the opportunity to enhance member value by providing a consistent and reasonable dividend.
We filed our Form 10-Q for the first quarter of 2017 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission on May 11, 2017.
