Federal Home Loan Bank of New York
Announces Third 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 September 30, 2021.

“Through the first nine months of the year, our members have continued to serve their customers and communities as we move towards recovering from the pandemic,” said José R. González, president and CEO of the FHLBNY. “This recovery continues to be supported by the local lender, and the Federal Home Loan Bank of New York proudly continues to serve as the local lender’s stable and reliable partner across New Jersey, New York, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.”

Highlights from the third quarter of 2021 include:

  • Net income for the quarter was $65.8 million, a decrease of $35.4 million, or 35.0 percent, from net income of $101.2 million for the third quarter of 2020. Net interest income for the quarter was $128.2 million, a decrease of $52.6 million, or 29.1 percent, from $180.8 million in the third quarter last year. This decrease was driven primarily by a decline of $44.5 billion in average interest earning assets balances compared with the prior year period, including a decrease of $34.8 billion in average advances balances as members’ funding needs remain lower driven primarily by elevated levels of deposits arising from the significant amount of liquidity made available through government stimulus actions.
  • Return on average equity (“ROE”) for the quarter was 3.95 percent (annualized), compared to ROE of 5.04 percent for the third quarter of 2020.
  • As of September 30, 2021, total assets were $102.7 billion, a decrease of $34.3 billion, or 25.0 percent, from total assets of $137.0 billion at December 31, 2020. As of September 30, 2021, advances were $70.5 billion, a decrease of $21.6 billion, or 23.5 percent, from $92.1 billion at December 31, 2020.
  • As of September 30, 2021, total capital was $6.4 billion, a decrease of $0.9 billion from total capital of $7.3 billion at December 31, 2020. The decrease in total capital was driven primarily by a decrease in capital stock resulting from lower advances balances during the period. The FHLBNY’s retained earnings increased during the quarter by $6.3 million to $1.9 billion as of September 30, 2021, of which $1.1 billion was unrestricted retained earnings and $817 million was restricted retained earnings. At September 30, 2021, the FHLBNY met its regulatory capital ratios and liquidity requirements.

The FHLBNY allocated $7.3 million from its third quarter 2021 earnings for its Affordable Housing Program.

The FHLBNY currently expects to file its Form 10-Q for the third quarter of 2021 with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission by November 12, 2021.
