Subject: Standard & Poor's Rating Action and Risk-based Capital Calculation for Federal Securities
On August 5, 2011, Standard & Poor's rating agency lowered the long-term rating of U.S. government and federal agency securities from AAA to AA+. With regard to this action, consistent with guidance provided by the federal banking agencies with respect to capital rules, the Federal Housing Finance Agency provides this guidance for the Federal Home Loan Banks: the risk weights for Treasury securities and other securities issued or guaranteed by the U.S. Government, government agencies, and government-sponsored entities do not change for purposes of calculating risk-based capital.
