BY GlobeNewswire | AGENCY | 10/27/22 12:00 PM EDT

DES MOINES, Iowa, Oct. 27, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines (the Bank) announced today unaudited financial results and declared a dividend for the third quarter of 2022. The Board of Directors approved a third quarter 2022 dividend at an annualized rate of 7.25 percent on activity-based stock, an increase of 0.50 percent from the prior quarter, and 3.00 percent on membership stock, unchanged from the prior quarter. Dividend payments totaling $66 million are expected to be paid on November 14, 2022.

The increased dividend rate on activity-based stock is a result of changes in interest rates and business activity and reflects the Bank?s philosophy to pay a consistent dividend equal to or greater than the current market rate for a highly-rated investment, and at a rate that is sustainable under current and projected earnings to maintain an appropriate level of capital and retained earnings. Future dividends are at the discretion of the Bank?s Board of Directors and may be impacted by economic and market conditions.

Financial Results Discussion

Net Income - For the three and nine months ended September?30, 2022, the Bank recorded net income of $131 million and $284 million compared to $47 million and $160 million for the same periods in 2021. The increase in net income for both periods was primarily driven by an increase in net interest income.

Net Interest Income - For the three and nine months ended September?30, 2022, the Bank recorded net interest income of $197 million and $421 million, an increase of $108 million and $131 million when compared to the same periods in 2021. The increase for both periods was driven by higher interest rates, which improved interest-earning asset yields and earnings on invested capital, as well as growth in advance balances. The increase during the nine months ended September 30, 2022 was also due to reduced net premium amortization on mortgage loans driven by a slowdown in prepayment activity.

Assets - The Bank?s total assets increased to $133.2 billion at September?30, 2022, from $85.9 billion at December?31, 2021, driven primarily by an increase in advances and investments. Advances increased $38.1 billion due mainly to an increase in borrowings by large depository institution members. Investments increased $7.3 billion driven by increased money market investments and the purchase of U.S. Treasury obligations and agency MBS.

Capital - Total capital increased to $7.5 billion at September?30, 2022 from $5.8 billion at December?31, 2021, primarily due to an increase in activity-based capital stock resulting from an increase in advance balances.

In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties. Unlike individual bonds, most bond funds do not have a maturity date, so avoiding losses caused by price volatility by holding them until maturity is not possible.

Lower-quality debt securities generally offer higher yields, but also involve greater risk of default or price changes due to potential changes in the credit quality of the issuer. Any fixed income security sold or redeemed prior to maturity may be subject to loss.
