Preview the 2019 Changes to the BBC Form for Self-Reporting Requirements
 
 
COLLATERAL UPDATE

In August, FHLB Des Moines member institutions received notification of changes to collateral definitions and reporting requirements for residential 1-4 family 1st mortgages to be implemented in January 2019. Full details regarding this change can be found on our Members Site.

As a result of this new reporting requirement, the Borrowing Base Certificate (BBC) form for residential 1-4 family 1st mortgages will look different to members  beginning with their reporting for the quarter ending December 31, 2018.

Now Accepting as Eligible Collateral: Tax Exempt Mortgage Securities
 
 
WHAT WE ARE WORKING ON

Members asked, we listened. FHLB Des Moines now accepts both rated and unrated Tax Exempt Mortgage Securities (TEMS) as eligible collateral. These securities are deemed to be eligible as they are municipal bonds issued by a state or local housing agency to support housing. Each TEMS is backed by an agency security and can be exchanged for the underlying agency CUSIP at-will.

If you have further questions about TEMS, please reach out to Chris Kuhn-McRoberts, Collateral Manager, at ckuhn@fhlbdm.com or 515.412.2262.   
 
HOLD THE PHONE.

We've got a new number.

515-412-2500

As part of our recent building move, you can now reach the collateral department at the number above. In addition, personal direct numbers of the collateral staff have also changed.

MCV Notifications

NOTES FROM THE FIELD

FHLB Des Moines performs regulatory-mandated reviews called Member Collateral Verifications (MCVs). The MCV has three primary purposes: to validate the existence of pledged collateral, assess the completeness of loan file documentation and verify that the pledged loan collateral meets FHLB Des Moines eligibility guidelines.

Members selected for an MCV review in the 1st half of 2019 were notified last week (November 6th). If your institution is selected, you will receive a notice from your Collateral Review Manager regarding next steps.

Read more about the MCV process here. If you have any additional questions, please send an email to MCV_Collateral@fhlbdm.com
