February 15 - Engagement Deadline for the New April Pool

FHFA Disqualifies Captive Insurance Companies
from FHLB Membership

On January 12th, the FHFA released its final rule on FHLBank membership. In the rule, it disallows captives from FHLBank membership. We want to clarify that this new rule in no way affects KeyState’s Bank Captive Program. The captives in KeyState’s program are not members of the FHLBank system, so this new rule does not affect them in any way. Over 10 years ago, non-banks began forming captive insurance companies to access funding through the FHLBank system. This mechanism was particularly popular with mortgage companies.


Get in Touch

We would love the opportunity to discuss how a captive can work for your bank. Please contact Hillary Frei at hfrei@key-state.com or Josh Miller at jmiller@key-state.com. Both can be reached at 702.598.3738.
