Agency Securities

The U.S. Agency market is comprised of notes and bonds issued by U.S. federal government agencies and by Government-Sponsored Enterprises (GSEs). Incapital’s Agency issuers include:


  • Federal National Mortgage Association (Fannie Mae)

  • Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corporation (Freddie Mac)

  • Federal Home Loan Bank System (FHLB)

  • Federal Farm Credit Bureau (FFCB)

  • Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA)

  • Federal Agricultural Mortgage Credit Association (Farmer Mac)


Agency securities are considered to be of high credit quality, but most are not guaranteed by the full faith and credit of the United States government. Yields on Agency notes and bonds are usually somewhat higher than U.S. Treasury obligations, but lower than investment-grade corporate securities of similar duration and structure. Agencies are sought after by investors seeking low credit risk along with yields higher than those of a U.S. Government instrument.

Supranational Securities

Supranationals are international development institutions that provide global financing and advisory services for economic development and poverty reduction. Supranational debt securities are socially responsible investments that address environmental, economic and social concerns. Supranational entities issue in numerous currencies and in global markets. While credit risk exists, supranational securities are considered to be of high credit quality. Incapital is proud to be an underwriter for:


  • The World Bank (IBRD)

  • International Finance Corporation (IFC)


We have been an underwriter for The World Bank since 2011, and in 2014, we distributed IFC’s first U.S. retail-targeted green bond.
