About Agency Securities

In addition to the U.S. Treasury, federal agencies also issue short-term and medium-term investment products. While they’re not direct obligations of the United States, they typically offer government guarantees or sponsorship, and often a higher rate of return than Treasuries of comparable term lengths.

Agency Discount Notes
Like Treasury Bills, Agency Discount Notes are sold at a discount and mature to face value in short-term intervals.

Agency Medium-Term Notes
These are comparable to Treasury Notes, as they’re offered for fixed periods of time and pay interest semi-annually.

Issuing Federal Agencies Include:
Federal National Mortgage Association (FNMA)
Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (FHLMC)
Federal Farm Credit Bureau (FFCB)
Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB)
