FHLB Des Moines Releases 2015 Annual Stress Test Disclosures

DES MOINES, Iowa, July 23, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines today made available the results of its second annual stress test as required by its regulator, the Federal Housing Finance Agency. As a result of the merger transaction with Federal Home Loan Bank of Seattle on May 31, 2015, the Bank also made available the results of the Seattle Bank’s second annual stress test. Results can be found on the Bank’s investor relations page:


The stress tests estimate each of the Banks’ capital levels under hypothetical severely adverse economic conditions. Results are projected over a nine-quarter period beginning with capital balances as of September 30, 2014. The estimates exclude the impact of the merger transaction and should not be regarded as forecasts of actual financial results.
