Whether your institution is seeking alternatives to managing liquidity, expanding credit options, mitigating interest rate risk or funding community investment projects, your membership in FHLBank Topeka can be the financial link.

FHLBank’s customized credit products and funding strategies can be key elements in helping you meet customer demand and surpassing shareholders’ bottom-line expectations.


Membership provides your institution with access to an array of flexible funding options for:
