Under the MPF Government product,
the risks associated with financing loans insured or
guaranteed by government agencies (government loans)
are shared between the Federal Home Loan
Bank (FHLB) and members to maximize comparative advantages.
With MPF Government,
members market to borrowers, obtain insurance, or guarantee
and service fixed-rate residential government loans. Members may also take advantage of our servicing released option for FHA, VA, and RHS Section 502 loans through Colonial Savings, F.A.
With the MPF Government product, the
member is responsible for, and bears the risk of,
unreimbursed servicing expenses (which is comparable
to GNMA servicing requirements). A
recent HUD audit may be required
for member participation in the MPF Government product.
Because of the cooperative nature of the FHLB system,
the FHLB is able to offer competitive pricing to our
members for government loans. The FHLB manages the
liquidity, interest rate, and prepayment risks of the
loans. Members have the option to retain servicing and bear the risk of unreimbursed
servicing expenses (comparable to GNMA servicing requirements). Members can also sell the servicing to Colonial Savings and receive a competitive SRP. The combined effects of competitive pricing, member servicing expertise, and an attractive SRP structure distinguish the MPF Government product from other options available in the marketplace today.
For depository institutions, there is no leverage capital or risk-based capital requirement for loans sold under the MPF Government product.
* The FHLB is not providing accounting or legal advice with respect to the accounting treatment of MPF® program assets and liabilities. The participating member is expected to consult with its own accountants and attorneys for advice on this matter.
