Floating Rate Bonds
Farm Credit Floating Rate Bonds are high credit quality, variable rate bonds issued as needed by the Banks of the Farm Credit System. Farm Credit Floating Rate Bonds may be linked to SOFR, T-Bills and LIBOR. In addition, Farm Credit is the largest agency issuer of floating rate bonds linked to Fed Funds and the Prime Rate.
Floating Rate Bonds are attractive to investors as they can help manage investment risk typically associated with short-term money market instruments.
Funds raised through Floating Rate Bond issuance are used by the Banks of the Farm Credit System to support rural communities and U.S. agriculture.
