Exhibit 99.1
Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco Announces First Quarter 2021 Operating Results
SAN FRANCISCO, April 29, 2021 — The Federal Home Loan Bank of San Francisco (Bank) today announced its operating results for the first quarter of 2021. Net income for the first quarter of 2021 was $94 million, compared with a net loss of $8 million for the first quarter of 2020.
The $102 million increase in net income relative to the prior-year period primarily reflected an increase in net interest income of $109 million and an improvement in provision for/(reversal of) credit losses of $45 million. This was partially offset by a decrease in other income of $39 million, primarily attributable to an increase in net fair value losses associated with financial instruments carried at fair value that was partially offset by an increase in net fair value gains associated with non-hedge qualifying derivatives.
The $109 million increase in net interest income primarily reflected an increase of $64 million in net fair value gains on designated fair value hedges, an improvement in retrospective adjustment of the effective yields on mortgage loans and related delivery commitments of $38 million, and an increase in prepayment fees received on advances of $7 million. Additionally, the Bank recorded a reversal of credit losses of $6 million for the first quarter of 2021, primarily associated with certain private-label residential mortgage-backed securities (PLRMBS) classified as available-for-sale (AFS) and largely resulting from improved credit performance and an improved economic outlook. This reversal compares with a provision for credit losses of $39 million recorded for the first quarter of 2020 associated with certain PLRMBS classified as AFS, which primarily resulted from a significant decline in fair values in the first quarter of 2020.
At March 31, 2021, total assets were $57.9 billion, a decrease of $10.7 billion from $68.6 billion at December 31, 2020. Total investments decreased $7.7 billion, to $27.5 billion at March 31, 2021, from $35.2 billion at December 31, 2020. The decrease in investments primarily reflected a decrease in securities purchased under agreements to resell, U.S. Treasury securities, and mortgage-backed securities (MBS), that was partially offset by an increase in Federal funds sold, as the Bank continued to manage its liquidity. In addition, advances decreased $2.9 billion, to $28.1 billion at March 31, 2021, from $31.0 billion at December 31, 2020, as many members maintained significant deposit balances and excess liquidity resulting from the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Accumulated other comprehensive income/(loss) (AOCI) increased by $137 million during the first quarter of 2021, to $367 million at March 31, 2021, from $230 million at December 31, 2020. The increase in AOCI during the first quarter of 2021 primarily reflected higher fair values of MBS classified as AFS.
As of March 31, 2021, the Bank complied with all of its regulatory capital requirements. The Bank’s total regulatory capital ratio was 10.3%, exceeding the 4.0% requirement. The Bank had $6.0 billion in permanent capital, exceeding its risk-based capital requirement of $1.2 billion. Total retained earnings as of March 31, 2021, were $3.7 billion.
Today, the Bank’s board of directors declared a quarterly cash dividend on the capital stock outstanding during the first quarter of 2021 at an annualized rate of 6.00%. The quarterly dividend rate is consistent with the Bank's dividend philosophy of endeavoring to pay a quarterly dividend at a rate between 5% and 7% annualized. The quarterly dividend will total $34 million. The Bank expects to pay the dividend on May 11, 2021.
