The Federal Home Loan Bank of New York (FHLBNY) released its unaudited financial highlights for the second quarter ended June 30, 2018.
FHLBNY As of June 30, 2018, total assets were $156.6 billion
This increase in net income was driven primarily by an increase in advances income. Return on average equity ("ROE") for the quarter was 8.05 percent (annualized), compared to ROE of 6.99 percent for the second quarter of 2017.
As of June 30, 2018, total assets were $156.6 billion, a decrease of $2.3 billion, or 1.4 percent, from total assets of $158.9 billion at December 31, 2017.
This decrease in total assets was driven primarily by lower advances balances during the period. As of June 30, 2018, advances were $110.8 billion, a decrease of $11.6 billion, or 9.5 percent, from $122.4 billion at December 31, 2017.
This decrease was partly offset by increases in securities purchased under agreements to sell, federal funds sold and trading securities for a total of $8.9 billion.
