Federal Home Loan Banks Leveraging Up

I haven’t read anything about the Federal Home Loan Banks since they published their preliminary third quarter results. This is just a short post to point out that Total Assets to Total Capital has been increasing while total assets (these are typically loans to banks) has been increasing dramatically. This is one of those places where taxpayers are leveraging to replace private debt contraction. To put this into perspective, I posted a couple of graphs. The first is Total Assets and the second is Total Assets/Total Capital, which hit 25 times in the third quarter. This is looking more and more like one of those investment banks, especially since almost all of the assets are mortgage related.

For additional information you can go to the FHLBank website here.

Hello. My wife and I bought our house about 6 months ago. It was a foreclosure and we were able to get a great deal on it. We also took advantage of the 8K tax credit so that definitely helped. We did an extensive remodeling job and now I want to refinance to cut the term to a 20 or 15 year loan. Does anyone know any good sites for mortgage information? Thanks!
