Keeping Insurers Fully Invested

Indiana- and Michigan-based insurance companies that become members of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Indianapolis enjoy same-day access to the global capital market with customized funding structures from overnight to 10 years. FHLBI membership is a valuable tool for insurers to manage liquidity and asset/liability needs—and ensure they remain fully invested.

In addition to its flexibility, FHLBI funding is generally the lowest cost and most reliable funding source for insurers. No wonder rating agencies view FHLBI membership as a positive ratings factor.

Sounds like a great deal, right? That’s because it is. When you
become a member, you’re more than a customer of FHLBI—you’re a part owner, which means you also share in our success through dividend payouts. In fact, our quarterly dividends to members have consistently outperformed comparable investments and have averaged the three-month LIBOR plus 3.31% over the past five years (see chart).1

FHLBI Membership Helps You:

  • Enhance your access to liquidity for Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) as well as Own Risk and Solvency Assessment (ORSA) plans.
  • Reduce your cash balances and increase investment income.
  • Prepare for catastrophic events and avoid asset fire sales.
  • Lock in economical term financing for special projects and general corporate purposes.
  • Create a matched book portfolio to increase operating leverage and investment earnings.
  • Access grant dollars to support low-income housing projects in your community.
