ATLANTA, March 23, 2012 - The Board of Directors of Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta (the Bank) has approved an annualized dividend rate for the fourth quarter of 2011 of 1.23 percent.

“Consistently providing a return on our shareholders’ investment is just one of the ways we are able to share our success with our owners, while continuing to offer the low-cost funding they rely on," said Scott C. Harvard, Chairman of the FHLBank Atlanta Board of Directors. “We are pleased to increase the shareholder dividend for the fourth quarter 2011 by 25 basis points.”
The dividend rate is equal to average three-month LIBOR plus 0.75 percent for the period of October 1, 2011, to December 31, 2011.
