The financial markets are preparing for the expected phase-out of the London Interbank Offered Rate (LIBOR) by the end of 2021.

As part of this transition, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) recently issued a supervisory letter to all Federal Home Loan Banks (FHLBanks). The FHFA, which regulates the FHLBanks, has required that by March 31, 2020, the FHLBanks cease entering into new LIBOR referenced instruments with maturities beyond December 31, 2021. This change may impact certain FHLBank Indianapolis products with a LIBOR component.

For more information, please see our LIBOR Transition page.
