FEDERAL HOME LOAN BANK OF TOPEKA
Notes to Financial Statements - Unaudited
March 31, 2015


NOTE 1BASIS OF PRESENTATION

Basis of Presentation: The accompanying interim financial statements of the FHLBank are unaudited and have been prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America (GAAP) for interim financial information and with the instruction provided by Article 10, Rule 10-01 of Regulation S-X. The financial statements contain all adjustments which are, in the opinion of management, necessary for a fair statement of the FHLBank’s financial position, results of operations and cash flows for the interim periods presented. All such adjustments were of a normal recurring nature. The results of operations for the periods presented are not necessarily indicative of the results to be expected for the full fiscal year or any other interim period.

The FHLBank’s significant accounting policies and certain other disclosures are set forth in the notes to the audited financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2014. The interim financial statements presented herein should be read in conjunction with the FHLBank’s audited financial statements and notes thereto, which are included in the FHLBank’s annual report on Form 10-K filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) on March 13, 2015 (annual report on Form 10-K). The notes to the interim financial statements highlight significant changes to the notes included in the annual report on Form 10-K.

Use of Estimates: The preparation of financial statements under GAAP requires management to make estimates and assumptions as of the date of the financial statements in determining the reported amounts of assets, liabilities and estimated fair values and in determining the disclosure of any contingent assets or liabilities. Estimates and assumptions by management also affect the reported amounts of income and expense during the reporting period. The most significant of these estimates include the fair value of trading securities, the fair value of derivatives and the allowance for credit losses. Many of the estimates and assumptions, including those used in financial models, are based on financial market conditions as of the date of the financial statements. Because of the volatility of the financial markets, as well as other factors that affect management estimates, actual results may vary from these estimates.

Reclassifications: The FHLBank identified a classification error in its previously reported Statements of Cash Flows for the three-month period ended March 31, 2014, contained in the previously filed Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The error overstated the Net Cash Provided by (Used in) Operating Activities and understated the Net Cash Provided by (Used in) Financing Activities by $13,734,000. The FHLBank determined that the error was not material to the previously issued Statements of Cash Flows. Accordingly, the classification error has been corrected in this Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q. The correction had no impact on the FHLBank’s financial condition or results of operations for any period.


NOTE 2RECENTLY ISSUED ACCOUNTING STANDARDS AND INTERPRETATIONS AND CHANGES IN AND ADOPTIONS OF ACCOUNTING PRINCIPLES

Customer’s Accounting for Fees Paid in a Cloud Computing Arrangement. In April 2015, the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) issued amendments to clarify the accounting for cloud computing arrangements. The amendments provide guidance to customers about whether a cloud computing arrangement includes a software license and how to account for it. This guidance is effective for interim and annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2015, which is January 1, 2016 for the FHLBank, and early adoption is permitted.  The FHLBank can elect to adopt the amendments either: (1) prospectively to all arrangements entered into or materially modified after the effective date; or (2) retrospectively. The FHLBank is in the process of evaluating this guidance and its effect on the FHLBank's financial condition, results of operations, and cash flows.

Simplifying the Presentation of Debt Issuance Costs. In April 2015, FASB issued guidance that requires a reclassification of debt issuance costs related to a recognized debt liability from other assets to a reduction of the carrying amount of the liability consistent with the presentation of debt discounts. The recognition and measurement guidance for debt issuance costs did not change as a result of this amendment. The amendments are effective for annual periods, and interim periods within those annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2015, which is January 1, 2016 for the FHLBank. The period-specific effects as a result of applying this guidance are required to be adjusted retrospectively to each individual period presented on the statement of condition. The adoption of this amendment is not expected to have a material impact on the FHLBank's financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows.


13


Amendments to the Consolidation Analysis. In February 2015, FASB issued guidance that impacts reporting entities that are required to evaluate whether they must consolidate certain legal entities. Under the amended guidance, in a consolidation evaluation, more emphasis is placed on variable interests other than fee arrangements, such as principal investment risk or guarantees of the value of the assets or liabilities of the variable interest entity. The amendments emphasize risk of loss in the determination of a controlling financial interest and provide a scope exception for reporting entities with interests in legal entities that are required to comply with or operate in accordance with requirements that are similar to those in Rule 2a-7 of the Investments Company Act of 1940 for registered money market funds. The amendments are effective for annual periods, and interim periods within those annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2015, which is January 1, 2016 for the FHLBank. The adoption of this amendment is not expected to have a material impact on the FHLBank's financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows.

Classification of Certain Government-Guaranteed Mortgage Loans Upon Foreclosure. In August 2014, FASB issued guidance to change the accounting for government-guaranteed mortgage loans, including Federal Housing Administration (FHA) and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) loans. The amendments require that a mortgage loan be derecognized and a separate receivable be recognized upon foreclosure if: (1) the loan has a government guarantee that is not separable from the loan before foreclosure; (2) at the time of foreclosure, the creditor has the intent to convey the property to the guarantor and make a claim on that guarantee and the ability to recover under that claim; and (3) at the time of foreclosure, any amount of the claim determined on the basis of fair value is fixed. This receivable should be based upon the principal and interest expected to be recovered from the guarantor. The amendments were effective for annual periods, and interim periods within those annual periods, beginning after December 15, 2014, which was January 1, 2015 for the FHLBank. The adoption of this amendment did not have a material impact on the FHLBank's financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows.

Repurchase-to-Maturity Transactions, Repurchase Financings, and Disclosures. In June 2014, FASB issued guidance to change the accounting for repurchase-to-maturity transactions and linked repurchase financings to that of secured borrowings, which is consistent with the accounting for repurchase agreements. The amendments also require two new disclosures: (1) information about transfers accounted for as sales in transactions that are economically similar to repurchase agreements; and (2) increased transparency about the types of collateral pledged for repurchase agreements and similar transactions accounted for as secured borrowings. The amendments were effective for the first interim or annual period beginning after December 15, 2014, which was January 1, 2015 for the FHLBank. The adoption of this amendment did not have a material impact on the FHLBank's financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows.

Revenue Recognition. In May 2014, FASB issued guidance to introduce a new revenue recognition model in which an entity should recognize revenue to depict the transfer of promised goods or services to customers in an amount that reflects the consideration to which the entity expects to be entitled in exchange for those goods or services. This guidance also requires disclosures sufficient to enable users to understand the nature, amount, timing, and uncertainty of revenue and cash flows arising from contracts with customers, including qualitative and quantitative disclosures about contracts with customers, significant judgments and changes in judgments, and assets recognized from the costs to obtain or fulfill a contract. This standard is effective for fiscal years beginning after December 15, 2016 (January 1, 2017 for the FHLBank), including interim periods within that reporting period. The FHLBank is currently evaluating the new guidance to determine the impact it will have, if any, on its financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows.

Receivables - Troubled Debt Restructurings by Creditors. In January 2014, FASB issued amendments intended to clarify when a creditor should be considered to have received physical possession of the residential real estate property collateralizing a consumer mortgage loan. These amendments clarify that an in substance repossession or foreclosure occurs, and a creditor is considered to have received physical possession of residential real estate property collateralizing a consumer mortgage loan, when either: (a) the creditor obtains legal title to the residential real estate property upon completion of a foreclosure; or (b) the borrower conveys all interest in the residential real estate property to the creditor to satisfy that loan through completion of a deed in lieu of foreclosure or through a similar legal agreement. The amendments were effective for interim and annual periods beginning after December 15, 2014 (January 1, 2015 for the FHLBank), with early adoption permitted. The guidance could be adopted using a modified retrospective transition method or a prospective transition method. The adoption of this amendment was prospective and did not have a material impact on the FHLBank's financial condition, results of operations, or cash flows.

Other-than-temporary Impairment: For those securities for which an OTTI was determined to have occurred during the three months ended March 31, 2015 (that is, securities for which the FHLBank determined that it was more likely than not that the amortized cost basis would not be recovered), Table 3.8 presents a summary of the significant inputs used to measure the amount of credit loss recognized in earnings during this period as well as related current credit enhancement. Credit enhancement is defined as the percentage of subordinated tranches and over-collateralization, if any, in a security structure that will generally absorb losses before the FHLBank will experience a loss on the security. The calculated averages represent the dollar-weighted averages of all the private-label MBS/ABS investments in each category shown. Private-label MBS/ABS are classified as prime, Alt-A and subprime based on the originator’s classification at the time of origination or based on classification by a Nationally Recognized Statistical Rating Organization (NRSRO) upon issuance of the MBS/ABS.

For the three months ended March 31, 2015 and 2014, securities previously impaired represent all securities that were impaired prior to January 1, 2015 and 2014, respectively.

The FHLBank amortizes the credit component based on estimated cash flows prospectively up to the amount of expected principal to be recovered. The discounted cash flows will move from the discounted loss value to the ultimate principal to be written off at the projected date of loss. If the expected cash flows improve, the amount of expected loss decreases which causes a corresponding decrease in the calculated amortization. Based on the level of improvement in the cash flows, the amortization could become a positive adjustment to income.

As of March 31, 2015, the fair value of a portion of the FHLBank's held-to-maturity MBS portfolio was below the amortized cost of the securities due to interest rate volatility and/or illiquidity. However, the decline in fair value of these securities is considered temporary as the FHLBank expects to recover the entire amortized cost basis on the remaining held-to-maturity securities in unrecognized loss positions and neither intends to sell these securities nor is it more likely than not that the FHLBank will be required to sell these securities before its anticipated recovery of the remaining amortized cost basis. For state and local housing agency obligations, the FHLBank determined that all of the gross unrealized losses on these bonds were temporary because the strength of the underlying collateral and credit enhancements was sufficient to protect the FHLBank from losses based on current expectations.


NOTE 4ADVANCES

The FHLBank’s advances outstanding include advances that contain call options that may be exercised with or without prepayment fees at the borrower’s discretion on specific dates (call dates) before the stated advance maturities (callable advances). In exchange for receiving the right to call the advance on a predetermined call schedule, the borrower may pay a higher fixed rate for the advance relative to an equivalent maturity, non-callable, fixed rate advance. The borrower normally exercises its call options on these advances when interest rates decline (fixed rate advances) or spreads change (adjustable rate advances). The FHLBank’s advances as of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014 include callable advances totaling $5,298,463,000 and $4,825,254,000, respectively. Of these callable advances, there were $5,181,078,000 and $4,697,045,000 of variable rate advances as of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, respectively.

Convertible advances allow the FHLBank to convert an advance from one interest payment term structure to another. When issuing convertible advances, the FHLBank may purchase put options from a member that allow the FHLBank to convert the fixed rate advance to a variable rate advance at the current market rate or another structure after an agreed-upon lockout period. A convertible advance carries a lower interest rate than a comparable-maturity fixed rate advance without the conversion feature. As of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, the FHLBank had convertible advances outstanding totaling $1,554,542,000 and $1,586,242,000, respectively.

NOTE 5MORTGAGE LOANS

The MPF Program involves the FHLBank investing in mortgage loans, which have been funded by the FHLBank through or purchased from its participating members. These mortgage loans are government-insured or guaranteed (by the FHA, the VA, the Rural Housing Service of the Department of Agriculture (RHS) and/or the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD)) loans and conventional residential loans credit-enhanced by participating financial institutions (PFI). Depending upon a member’s product selection, the servicing rights can be retained or sold by the participating member. The FHLBank does not buy or own any mortgage servicing rights.

See Note 6 for information related to the FHLBank’s credit risk on mortgage loans and allowance for credit losses.


NOTE 6ALLOWANCE FOR CREDIT LOSSES

The FHLBank has established an allowance methodology for each of its portfolio segments: credit products (advances, letters of credit and other extensions of credit to borrowers); government mortgage loans held for portfolio; conventional mortgage loans held for portfolio; the direct financing lease receivable; term Federal funds sold; and term securities purchased under agreements to resell.


22


Credit products: The FHLBank manages its credit exposure to credit products through an integrated approach that generally includes establishing a credit limit for each member, includes an ongoing review of each member’s financial condition and is coupled with conservative collateral/lending policies to limit risk of loss while balancing members’ needs for a reliable source of funding. In addition, the FHLBank lends to its members in accordance with Federal statutes and Finance Agency regulations. Specifically, the FHLBank complies with the Federal Home Loan Bank Act of 1932, as amended (Bank Act), which requires the FHLBank to obtain sufficient collateral to fully secure credit products. The estimated value of the collateral required to secure each member’s credit products is calculated by applying collateral discounts, or haircuts, to the market value or UPB of the collateral, as applicable. The FHLBank accepts certain investment securities, residential mortgage loans, deposits, and other real estate related assets as collateral. In addition, community financial institutions are eligible to utilize expanded statutory collateral provisions for small business loans, agriculture loans and community development loans. The FHLBank’s capital stock owned by borrowing members is held by the FHLBank as further collateral security for all indebtedness of the member to the FHLBank. Collateral arrangements may vary depending upon member credit quality, financial condition and performance; borrowing capacity; and overall credit exposure to the member. The FHLBank can also require additional or substitute collateral to protect its security interest. The FHLBank’s management believes that these policies effectively manage the FHLBank’s credit risk from credit products.

Based upon the financial condition of the member, the FHLBank either allows a member to retain physical possession of the collateral assigned to it, or requires the member to specifically assign or place physical possession of the collateral with the FHLBank or its safekeeping agent. The FHLBank perfects its security interest in all pledged collateral. The Bank Act affords any security interest granted to the FHLBank by a member priority over the claims or rights of any other party except for claims or rights of a third party that would be entitled to priority under otherwise applicable law and are held by a bona fide purchaser for value or by a secured party holding a prior perfected security interest.

Using a risk-based approach and taking into consideration each member’s financial strength, the FHLBank considers the type and level of collateral to be the primary indicator of credit quality on its credit products. As of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, the FHLBank had rights to collateral on a member-by-member basis with an estimated value in excess of its outstanding extensions of credit.

The FHLBank continues to evaluate and make changes to its collateral guidelines, as necessary, based on current market conditions. As of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, the FHLBank did not have any advances that were past due, on nonaccrual status or considered impaired. In addition, there have been no troubled debt restructurings related to credit products during 2015 and 2014.

Based upon the collateral held as security, management’s credit extension and collateral policies, management’s credit analysis and the repayment history on credit products, the FHLBank currently does not anticipate any credit losses on its credit products. Accordingly, as of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, the FHLBank has not recorded any allowance for credit losses on credit products, nor has it recorded any liability to reflect an allowance for credit losses for off‑balance sheet credit exposures. For additional information on the FHLBank’s off-balance sheet credit exposure, see Note 14.

Government Mortgage Loans Held For Portfolio: The FHLBank invests in government-guaranteed or insured (by FHA, VA, RHA and/or HUD) fixed rate mortgage loans secured by one-to-four family residential properties. The servicer provides and maintains insurance or a guarantee from the applicable government agency. The servicer is responsible for compliance with all government agency requirements and for obtaining the benefit of the applicable insurance or guarantee with respect to defaulted government mortgage loans. Any losses on these loans that are not recovered from the issuer or guarantor are absorbed by the servicers. Therefore, the FHLBank only has credit risk for these loans if the servicer fails to pay for losses not covered by the insurance or guarantee. Based on the FHLBank’s assessment of its servicers, the FHLBank has not established an allowance for credit losses on government mortgage loans. Further, none of these mortgage loans have been placed on non-accrual status because of the U.S. government guarantee or insurance on these loans and the contractual obligation of the loan servicer to repurchase the loans when certain criteria are met.

Conventional Mortgage Loans Held For Portfolio: The allowance for conventional loans is determined by a formula analysis based upon loss factors predominantly calculated using a historical analysis of loan performance. Delinquent loan migration analysis is performed to determine default probability rates, and historical loss analysis is performed to determine loss severity rates, both of which are then utilized as loss factors within the formula analysis. These analyses include consideration of various data observations, such as past performance, current performance, loan portfolio characteristics, collateral-related characteristics, industry data, and prevailing economic conditions. The measurement of the allowance for conventional mortgage loan losses may consist of: (1) reviewing all residential mortgage loans at the individual master commitment level; (2) reviewing specifically identified collateral-dependent loans for impairment; (3) reviewing homogeneous pools of residential mortgage loans; and/or (4) estimating credit losses in the remaining portfolio. The formula analysis is consistently applied, but loss factors may be adjusted in response to changing conditions, as a result of management’s assessment of the adequacy of the allowance to absorb losses inherent in the portfolio.


23


During the first quarter of 2015, the FHLBank modified its technique for calculating the allowance for credit losses in connection with the adoption of Advisory Bulletin 2012-02 (AB 2012-02), Framework for Adversely Classifying Loans, Other Real Estate Owned, and Other Assets and Listing Assets for Special Mention, effective January 1, 2015. The adoption of AB 2012-02 is considered a change in estimate; however, it did not have a material impact to our financial condition, results of operations or cash flows. AB 2012-02 establishes a standard methodology for classifying loans, other real estate owned, and certain other assets, excluding investment securities, and prescribes the timing of asset charge-offs based upon these classifications. Management charges off delinquent mortgage loans where the decision of foreclosure or similar alternative such as pursuit of deed-in-lieu has been reported. Additionally, the adoption of AB 2012-02 requires any outstanding loan balance in excess of the fair value of the property, less cost to sell, to be classified as "Loss" when the loan is no more than 180 days delinquent, and a charge-off taken during the period identified. Fraudulent loans or borrowers in bankruptcy are also subject to the charge-off provisions of AB 2012-02. In conjunction with the implementation of AB 2012-02, management determined that a life-to-date net gain/loss on a loan transferred to real estate owned (REO), which includes charge-offs on loans considered impaired in compliance with AB 2012-02, would provide a more precise loss severity rate than the previous method of only considering losses from sale of the REO property. Management believes this change in technique will improve the FHLBank’s estimate of inherent losses in the portfolio.

Collectively Evaluated Mortgage Loans: The credit risk analysis of conventional loans evaluated collectively for impairment considers loan pool specific attribute data, applies estimated loss severities, and incorporates the associated credit enhancements in order to determine the FHLBank’s best estimate of probable incurred losses. Migration analysis is a methodology for determining, through the FHLBank’s experience over a historical period, the rate of default on pools of similar loans. The FHLBank applies migration analysis to loans based on the following categories: (1) loans in foreclosure; (2) nonaccrual loans; (3) delinquent loans; and (4) all other remaining loans. The FHLBank then estimates how many loans in these categories may migrate to a realized loss position and applies a loss severity factor to estimate losses incurred as of the Statement of Condition date.

Individually Evaluated Mortgage Loans: Certain conventional mortgage loans, primarily impaired mortgage loans that are considered collateral-dependent, may be specifically identified for purposes of calculating the allowance for credit losses. A mortgage loan is considered collateral-dependent if repayment is only expected to be provided by the sale of the underlying property, that is, if it is considered likely that the borrower will default and there is not sufficient CE obligation from a PFI to offset all losses under the master commitment. The estimated credit losses on impaired collateral-dependent loans may be separately determined because sufficient information exists to make a reasonable estimate of the inherent loss for these loans on an individual loan basis. The FHLBank estimates the fair value of this collateral by applying an appropriate loss severity rate or using third party estimates or property valuation models. The resulting incurred loss is equal to the difference between the carrying value of the loan and the estimated fair value of the collateral less estimated selling costs.

Direct Financing Lease Receivable: The FHLBank has a recorded investment in a direct financing lease receivable with a member for a building complex and property. Under the office complex agreement, the FHLBank has all rights and remedies under the lease agreement as well as all rights and remedies available under the member’s Advance, Pledge and Security Agreement. Consequently, the FHLBank can apply any excess collateral securing credit products to any shortfall in the leasing arrangement.

Term Federal Funds Sold: These investments are all short-term unsecured loans conducted with investment-grade counterparties and we only evaluate these investments for purposes of an allowance for credit losses if the investment is not paid when due. There were no investments in term Federal funds sold outstanding as of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, and all such investments acquired during the years ended March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014 were repaid according to their contractual terms.

Term Securities Purchased Under Agreements to Resell: These investments are considered collateralized financing arrangements and effectively represent short-term loans to investment-grade counterparties. The terms of these loans are structured such that if the market value of the underlying securities decreases below the market value required as collateral, the counterparty must provide additional securities as collateral in an amount equal to the decrease or remit cash in such amount, or the FHLBank will decrease the dollar value of the agreement to resell accordingly. If the FHLBank determines that an agreement to resell is impaired, the difference between the fair value of the collateral and the amortized cost of the agreement is charged to earnings. There were no investments in term securities purchased under agreements to resell outstanding as of March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014, and all such investments acquired during the years ended March 31, 2015 and December 31, 2014 were repaid according to their contractual terms.

Credit Quality Indicators: The FHLBank’s key credit quality indicators include the migration of: (1) past due loans; (2) non-accrual loans; (3) loans in process of foreclosure; and (4) impaired loans, all of which are used either on an individual or pool basis to determine the allowance for credit losses.

Table 6.3 summarizes the delinquency aging and key credit quality indicators for all of the FHLBank’s portfolio segments as of March 31, 2015 (dollar amounts in thousands):
