- Federal Farm Credit Banks Funding Corporation
As the Farm Credit System’s fiscal and disclosure agent, the Federal Farm Credit Banks Funding Corporation is responsible for issuing and marketing debt securities to finance Farm Credit’s loans, leases and operations. It actively engages with investors to provide information about the Farm Credit System, its financials, debt securities and U.S. agriculture.
By issuing debt securities on behalf of the four banks of the Farm Credit System (AgFirst, AgriBank, CoBank and Farm Credit Bank of Texas) the Funding Corporation raises funds so the banks can meet their needs as well as the needs of their retail associations. Those local retail associations then use the funding to support agricultural producers, rural homebuyers and agribusinesses across the country. CoBank also makes loans directly to farmer-owned cooperatives and rural infrastructure providers, as well as financing for agricultural exports.
In addition to managing Farm Credit's debt issuance and investor relations program, the Funding Corporation maintains responsibility for the disclosure and release of public information concerning the financial condition and performance of Farm Credit.
Like all Farm Credit institutions, the Funding Corporation operates as a cooperative, owned by the Farm Credit banks. And as part of Farm Credit, the Funding Corporation is regulated and examined by the Farm Credit Administration.
