Insurance Companies

Insurance company membership has grown significantly over the last 20 years. Insurers see the value that FHLBank Boston provides -- from low-cost funding, support for asset/liability management, to addressing longer-term needs to support growth, business objectives, and acquisitions.

Depositories + Credit Unions

FHLBank Boston membership offers banks and credit unions access to products and programs for liquidity, asset/liability and interest-rate risk management, profitability enhancement, secondary marketing, and mortgage pipeline funding.
