Under this new agreement, the Bank will utilize SimCorp Dimension across the majority of its balance sheet operations, worth approximately USD 150 billion. The solution will cover investment securities, consolidated obligation debt securities, advances and derivatives (including hedge accounting).
As one of 11 regional banks in the Federal Home Loan Bank System, FHLB Des Moines’ mission is to provide funding and liquidity for the Bank’s members and housing associates, so they can meet the housing, economic development and business needs of the communities they serve.
