FHLB Cincinnati Announces Second Quarter 2019 ResultsJuly 29, 2019
The Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati (the FHLB) today released unaudited financial results for the second quarter ended June 30, 2019. The FHLB expects to file its second quarter 2019 Form 10-Q with the Securities and Exchange Commission on or about August 8, 2019.
For the second quarter, net income was $64 million and return on average equity (ROE) was 5.09 percent. This compares to net income of $85 million and ROE of 6.15 percent for the same period of 2018. For the first six months of 2019, net income was $137 million and ROE was 5.34 percent, compared to net income of $168 million and ROE of 6.19 percent for the same period of 2018.
Net interest income was lower in both comparison periods primarily due to a decrease in Advance balances and lower spreads earned on Advances. Additionally, non-interest income (loss) was lower in the year-to-date comparison due to decreases in the fair values of certain derivatives and other financial instruments carried at fair value.
