How the Money Flows Infographic

FHLB Des Moines is a lender of first resort. We obtain access to funding at the lowest possible cost through the global capital markets, and, in turn, provide liquidity and credit products to members at very low rates. As these funds flow into the communities supported by our members, they benefit from their local lender’s membership in the Des Moines Bank. The FHLBank System is a critical part of our nation’s finance system, and the diagram shows a system that works.
