Credit Products – Advance Restructuring

Members interested in extending the maturity and reducing the rate of their existing advances have an alternative to consider: FHLB Boston’s Advance Restructuring solution.

Through this solution, members can restructure outstanding advances for certain eligible product types and blend the contractual prepayment fee into the rate of a new long-term advance. There is no cash settlement of the prepayment fee since it is blended into the rate of the new advance. This allows members to extend the maturity of their existing advances at a potentially lower rate on the new advances compared with the rate on the original advances — and without taking additional cash or purchasing additional stock.

The Bank will also remodify advances that were restructured more than 12 months ago.

For more information, see the Advance Restructuring Solution presentation Adobe PDF icon or contact your relationship manager or the Member Financial Strategies department. For a fully functional Advance Restructure Calculator, please email Kevin Martin .
