FHLBank Topeka Announces 2023 Fourth Quarter and Annual Operating Results February 22, 2024

FHLBank Topeka (FHLBank) is reporting net income of $87.4 million computed in accordance with U.S. generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) for the quarter ended December 31, 2023 compared to $73.1 million for the quarter ended December 31, 2022. For the year ended December  31, 2023, FHLBank is reporting net income of $370.5 million compared to $240.7 million for the same period in the prior year. The increases in net income for the current quarterly and year-to-date periods were the result of increases in net interest income and the impact of hedging, including fluctuations in fair value of economic derivatives and trading securities. These increases were partially offset by increases in operating expenses driven by compensation and benefits and expenses related to software implementations, and an increased allocation of funds available to members for affordable housing.

Net interest income increased $19.2 million for the quarter, from $99.9 million for the quarter ended December  31, 2022 to $119.1 million for the quarter ended December  31, 2023. Net interest income increased $97.1 million year-to-date, from $363.0 million for the year ended December  31, 2022 to $460.1 million for the year ended December  31, 2023. The increase for both the quarterly and year-to-date periods was due largely to an increase in the average yield due to rising interest rates and an increase in the average balance of advances, partially offset by a corresponding increase in the average cost and average balance of debt.

FHLBank expects to file its Form 10-K for the year ended December 31, 2023 with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on or about March  11, 2024.
