INDIANAPOLIS, April 27, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today the Board of Directors of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis (“FHLBank Indianapolis” or “Bank”) declared its first quarter 2023 dividends on Class B-2 activity-based capital stock and Class B-1 non-activity-based stock at annualized rates of 6.75% and 2.25%, respectively. The higher dividend rate on activity-based stock reflects the Board’s discretion under the Bank’s capital plan to reward members that use FHLBank Indianapolis in support of their liquidity needs.

The dividends will be paid in cash on April 28, 2023.

Earnings Highlights

Net income for the first quarter of 2023 was $92 million, an increase of $63 million compared to the corresponding quarter in the prior year. The increase was primarily due to higher earnings on the portion of the Bank’s assets funded by its capital1, driven by the increase in market interest rates, and net gains on the extinguishments of certain consolidated obligations.

Affordable Housing Program Allocation

The Bank’s Affordable Housing Program (“AHP”) provides grant funding to support housing for low- and moderate-income families in communities served by its Michigan and Indiana members. Full-year 2023 AHP allocations will be available to the Bank’s members in 2024 to help address their communities’ affordable housing needs, including construction, rehabilitation, accessibility improvements and homebuyer down-payment assistance.

For the three months ended March 31, 2023, AHP assessments2 totaled $11 million. In addition, the Bank voluntarily allocated $3 million, reported in other expenses, to further support its AHP and additional affordable housing, small business and community investment programs.

As a result, the Bank’s combined required and voluntary allocation in the first three months of 2023 totaled $14 million and demonstrates the Bank’s commitment to promoting affordable, sustainable and equitable housing in Michigan and Indiana.


FHLBank Indianapolis earns interest income on advances to and mortgage loans purchased from its Michigan and Indiana member financial institutions, as well as on long- and short-term investments. Net interest income is primarily determined by the size of the Bank’s balance sheet and the spread between the interest earned on its assets and the interest cost of funding with consolidated obligations. Because of the Bank’s inherent relatively low interest-rate spread, it has historically derived a substantial portion of its net interest income from deploying its interest-free capital in floating-rate assets.


Each year, Federal Home Loan Banks are required to allocate to the AHP 10% of earnings, defined for this purpose as income before assessments, plus interest expense on mandatorily redeemable capital stock.

Net income






Includes hedging gains (losses) and net interest settlements on fair-value hedge relationships. The Bank uses derivatives, specifically interest-rate swaps, to hedge the risk of changes in the fair value of certain of its advances, available-for-sale securities and consolidated obligations. These derivatives are designated as fair-value hedges and, therefore, changes in the estimated fair value of the derivative, and changes in the fair value of the hedged item that are attributable to the hedged risk, are recorded in net interest income.


Includes impact of purchase discount (premium) recorded through mark-to-market gains (losses) on trading securities and net interest settlements on derivatives hedging trading securities, while generally offsetting interest income on trading securities is included in interest income.

Balance Sheet Highlights

Total assets, at March 31, 2023, were $72.7 billion, a net increase of $406 million, or 1%, from December 31, 2022, driven primarily by a net increase in other investment securities, substantially offset by a net decrease in liquidity investments.

Advances 3

Advances outstanding, at March 31, 2023, at carrying value, totaled $37.0 billion, a net increase of $267 million, or 1%, from December 31, 2022. The par value of advances outstanding increased by 0.1% to $37.3 billion, which included a net increase in long-term advances of 6% and a net decrease in short-term advances of 9%.

The par value of advances outstanding to depository institutions — comprising commercial banks, savings institutions and credit unions — decreased by 0.3%, while advances outstanding to insurance companies increased by 0.7%. As a percent of total advances outstanding at par value, at March 31, 2023, advances to depository institutions were 64%, while advances to insurance companies were 36%.


Advances are secured loans that the Bank provides to its member institutions.

Mortgage Loans Held for Portfolio 4

Purchases of mortgage loans from the Bank’s members, for the three months ended March 31, 2023, totaled $196 million. Mortgage loans held for portfolio, at March 31, 2023, totaled $7.7 billion, a net increase of $45 million, or 1%, from December 31, 2022, as the Bank’s purchases slightly exceeded principal repayments by borrowers.

Liquidity Investments 5

Liquidity investments, which consist of cash and short-term investments as well as U.S. Treasury obligations, at March 31, 2023, totaled $9.4 billion, a net decrease of $1.4 billion, or 13%, from December 31, 2022. Cash and short-term investments increased by $406 million, or 5%, to $9.0 billion to support actual and potential demand for advances during the first quarter. U.S. Treasury obligations, classified as trading securities, decreased by $1.8 billion, or 82%, to $395 million, as all of the Bank’s purchases of U.S. Treasury obligations in 2023 were classified as available-for-sale. As a result, cash and short-term investments represented 96% of the total liquidity investments at March 31, 2023, while U.S. Treasury obligations represented 4%.

Other Investment Securities

Other investment securities, which consist substantially of mortgage-backed securities and U.S. Treasury obligations classified as held-to-maturity or available-for-sale, at March 31, 2023, totaled $17.9 billion, a net increase of $1.5 billion, or 9%, from December 31, 2022, due to purchases of U.S. Treasury obligations and mortgage-backed securities.

Consolidated Obligations 6

FHLBank Indianapolis’ consolidated obligations outstanding, at March 31, 2023, totaled $66.9 billion, a net decrease of $392 million, or 1%, from December 31, 2022, which reflected slightly lower funding needs.

Capital 7

Total capital, at March 31, 2023, was $3.6 billion, a net increase of $187 million, or 6%, from December 31, 2022. The net increase primarily resulted from issuances of capital stock to support the increase in advances.

The Bank’s regulatory capital-to-assets ratio8, at March 31, 2023, was 5.53%, which exceeds all applicable regulatory capital requirements.


The Bank purchases mortgage loans from its members to support its housing mission, provide an additional source of liquidity to its members, and diversify its investments.
