It is my pleasure to introduce the first edition of Strategies for Growth, FHLBank Atlanta’s new quarterly online newsletter for shareholders. Along with delivering flexible funding products, our goal is to serve as a reliable source of industry insights and expertise related to the housing market, mortgage industry, and the broader financial services sector.
Strategies for Growth is designed to provide you with ideas, strategies, and best practices that will help your organization make the most of its FHLBank Atlanta membership. In each issue, we will share with you how other FHLBank Atlanta shareholders are using our advances, letters of credit, or community investment products to build their businesses and manage their liquidity needs and balance sheets.
We’ll also give you a first look at new products and services FHLBank Atlanta will introduce in 2012 and how these offerings can be of strategic value to your institution. Finally, we’ll dive deeper into FHLBank Atlanta’s credit and collateral policies to help you leverage new opportunities to expand your borrowing capacity within our current policy structure.
We are committed to serving as a trusted, reliable resource for your institution. I hope you enjoy this edition of Strategies for Growth and that you find it useful for your business.
