Federal Agencies are authorized by Congress to support specific needs in the nation’s economy.  These agencies finance their funding requirements through the public sale of discount notes and debentures.  These securities are obligations of the issuing agency and are not guaranteed by the U.S. Treasury.  The Federal Agency securities are brought to market by a nationwide selling group of banks and dealers.  The Agency sets the rate on the securities according to market conditions.  Orders are usually placed prior to that announcement.  Shortly after the price is set, the issues are traded in the secondary market, and investors must pay the current market price, which varies with market conditions and current interest rates.  Agency obligations typically have maturities from one month to 15 years.
