REPORTING OF FRAUD AND SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITIES

FHLBank Indianapolis is committed to protecting its revenue, property, reputation, and other assets. Our Anti-Fraud Policy supports this commitment and strengthens our compliance efforts. This policy addresses instances of possible fraud, money laundering, suspicious activities, and other illicit activities within the bank, but also includes the same activities if detected in our dealings with our members, Affordable Housing Program partners, and vendors.

Financial Crimes Enforcement Network and Federal Housing Finance Agency regulations require FHLBank Indianapolis to report suspected fraud, money laundering, suspicious activities, and other illicit activities when they are detected. In turn, FHLBank Indianapolis expects all of its employees, officers, vendors, AHAC members, directors, members and housing associates, contractors, counter parties, service providers, and consultants to report to it any instances of the foregoing involving FHLBank Indianapolis, whether it occurs inside or outside the bank. Questionable Activity Reports should be made by sending a Questionable Activity Report form to the Bank Secrecy Act & Anti-Money Laundering Officer at 317.465.0419 or AML_Officer@fhlbi.com.
