GOVERNANCE AND REGULATION

Every FHLBank has its own board of directors, comprised of members of that FHLBank and independent (non-member) directors. The boards of directors represent many areas of expertise, including banking, accounting, housing and community development. By statute, two-fifths of the directors must be independent and at least two of those directors must be public interest directors with at least four years of experience in representing community or consumer interests. Directors serve four-year terms and may not serve more than three consecutive terms.

The regulator charged with overseeing the FHLBanks is the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), created by Congress in the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008. FHFA is led by the FHFA Director and advised by a Federal Housing Finance Oversight Board, composed of the Secretaries of Treasury and HUD, the Chair of the SEC and the FHFA Director. There is a Deputy Director for FHLBank regulation, while the FHLBanks' mission oversight is charged to the Deputy Director of Housing Mission and Goals.

The Office of Finance serves as the fiscal agent for the FHLBanks, with responsibility for offering, issuing and servicing bonds and discount notes, as well as preparing the combined financial reports. Buyers of debt securities issued by the FHLBanks represent the entire spectrum of domestic and international fixed-income investors, including commercial banks, central banks, money market funds, investment managers, major corporations, pension funds, government agencies and individuals.

The Council of FHLBanks is comprised of the Chairs, Vice Chairs and the Presidents of all FHLBanks. These member representatives, with the support and assistance of the Council staff, meet and coordinate throughout the year on matters of mutual interests regarding legislative and regulatory issues and public affairs.

2017 FHLBANK LEADERSHIP

Each FHLBank is governed by a Board of Directors and managed by senior officers and staff led by a President and CEO. The FHLBanks are regulated by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) and are registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC). The Council of FHLBanks is the trade association of the FHLBanks.
