Document Number: E7-5973

Date: 2007-04-02
Agency: Federal Housing Finance Board, Agencies and Commissions
The Federal Housing Finance Board (Finance Board) is proposing to clarify the types of financial interests a Federal Home Loan Bank (Bank) appointive director may own in a Bank member.

The proposal would extend the rationale for permitting mutual fund investments to other types of vehicles and accounts that share certain of the same key features as mutual funds and thus are unlikely to pose a risk of conflict of interest for an appointive director. The proposal also would set forth additional criteria to define when owning shares of a holding company, or having other types of financial interests in a member, would be permissible for an appointive director.
