Item 2.02 Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

On April 28, 2020, the Federal Home Loan Bank of Des Moines (the “Bank”) issued a news release to report its financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2020, and to declare a first quarter 2020 cash dividend for both average activity-based capital stock and average membership capital stock outstanding during the quarter. The annualized dividend rate approved was 5.50 percent for activity-based capital stock and 3.00 percent for membership capital stock. The effective combined annualized dividend rate for the Bank on both subclasses of capital stock outstanding will be 4.88 percent; however, the effective combined dividend rate on the total capital stock held by each shareholder depends on its level of activity with the Bank during the quarter. A copy of the news release is attached as Exhibit 99.1 to this report.
