Financial Results Discussion

Net Income - For the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, the Bank recorded net income of $80 million and $288 million compared to $113 million and $360 million for the same periods in 2018. The decline in the Bank’s net income was primarily driven by a decrease in net interest income and an increase in other expense. Net income was also impacted by a decrease in other income.

Net Interest Income - The Bank’s net interest income decreased to $129 million and $435 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 compared to $156 million and $480 million for the same periods last year. The decline during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 was primarily due to a decrease in net interest margin and a decline in average advance volumes. The Bank’s net interest margin was 0.38 percent and 0.41 percent during the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 compared to 0.42 percent and 0.43 percent for the same periods in 2018. The decrease in net interest margin was primarily attributable to lower asset liability spreads.

Other Income (Loss) - The Bank recorded net gains of $3 million and $11 million in other income (loss) for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019 compared to net gains of $7 million and $23 million for the same periods last year. Other income (loss) was primarily impacted by net gains (losses) on derivatives and hedging activities and net gains (losses) on trading securities.

Other Expense - Other expense totaled $43 million and $125 million for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2019, compared to $36 million and $101 million for the same periods last year, primarily due to an increase in professional fees and other operating expenses.

Assets - The Bank’s total assets decreased to $129.1 billion at September 30, 2019, from $146.5 billion at December 31, 2018,  primarily due to a decrease in advances, partially offset by an increase in investments. Advances at September 30, 2019 decreased by $21.3 billion from advances at December 31, 2018 due primarily to a decrease in borrowings by large depository institution members. Investments increased by $2.6 billion from December 31, 2018 primarily due to an increase in money market investments as a result of increased liquidity holdings during 2019.

Liabilities - The Bank’s total liabilities decreased to $122.3 billion at September 30, 2019, from $139.0 billion at December 31, 2018, primarily driven by a decrease in the amount of consolidated obligations needed to fund our assets.

Capital - Total capital decreased to $6.8 billion at September 30, 2019, from $7.5 billion at December 31, 2018, primarily due to a decrease in capital stock resulting from a decrease in member activity. The Bank’s regulatory capital ratio increased to 5.43 percent at September 30, 2019, from 5.27 percent at December 31, 2018 and was above the required regulatory minimum at each period end. Regulatory capital includes all capital stock, mandatorily redeemable capital stock, and retained earnings.
