Federal Funds Purchased/Securities Sold Under Repurchase Agreement (SF.IS.FedFundsPurchScrtySoldExp) refers to the funds acquired from a financial institution for a limited period of time to cover reserve requirements. Although the results are the same, the providers of the varying resources are different. Federal Funds Purchased are short-term borrowings from other depository financial institutions without any collateral, usually at the Federal Funds rate. These may be considered wholesale borrowings from other banks. Securities Sold Under Repurchase Agreement are securities sold on a temporary basis to other financial institutions with a pre-set buying price within a short period of time.
Advances from the Federal Home Loan Bank (FHLB) are classified as Federal Funds Purchased for a commercial bank.
