Preliminary figures on income of the Federal Reserve Banks. (Announcements).
Federal Reserve System income is derived primarily from interest earned on U.S. government securities that the Federal Reserve has acquired through open market operations. This income amounted to $30.54 billion. Additionally, revenues from fees for the provision of priced services to depository institutions totaled $926 million. The remaining income of $402 million includes earnings on foreign currencies, earnings from loans, and other income.
The operating expenses of the twelve Reserve Banks totaled $1.78 billion, including the System's pension cost credit. In addition, the cost of earnings credits granted to depository institutions amounted to $253 million. Assessments against Reserve Banks for Board expenditures totaled $295 million, and the cost of currency amounted to $339 million.
Net deductions from income amounted to $1.12 billion, resulting primarily from unrealized losses on assets denominated in foreign currencies revalued to reflect current market exchange rates.
Total net income for the Federal Reserve Banks amounted to $28.09 billion. Under the Board's policy, each Reserve Bank's net income after the statutory dividend to member banks and the amount necessary to equate surplus to paid-in capital is transferred to the U.S. Treasury. The statutory dividends to member banks were $428 million.
