7 PSR Policy Change Federal Reserve Board Press Release: September 23, 2004 … concerning interest and redemption payments on securities issued by government-sponsored enterprises (GSEs) and certain international organizations…. The revised policy requires that, beginning July 20, 2006, Reserve Banks will release these interest and redemption payments as directed by the issuer provided the issuer's Federal Reserve account contains sufficient funds to cover them. While the issuer will determine the timing of these payments during the day, each issuer will be required to fund its interest and redemption payments by 4 p.m. Eastern Time in order for the payments to be processed that day.
8 PSR Policy Change In conjunction with the policy changes, affected issuers adjusted their funding and payment patterns since they no longer are permitted to incur an overdraft position in their Federal Reserve Bank accounts for purposes of funding interest and redemption payments. The operational change was made to allow issuers to select an incremental payment pattern (i.e.. 25%) All 5 GSEs take advantage of paying incrementally Overall the market appears to be adjusting to the changes and loss of early morning liquidity.

11 Industry Initiatives The Federal Reserve Banks and the Clearing House Present Joint Research on Opportunities for Growth in Wire Payments: As the payments landscape continues to evolve and corporate payments migrate from paper to electronic formats, organizations are continuing to seek greater efficiencies in the funds transfer process. In order to better understand customer demand and position the funds transfer systems for potential growth in the future, the Federal Reserve Banks and The Clearing House conducted a joint research study entitled, Business to Business Wire Transfer Payments: Customer Preference and Opportunities for Financial Institutions. The study offers an in- depth view of the issues facing organizations that routinely make funds transfers payments and focuses on the motivations driving payment decisions as well as potential opportunities for achieving growth in these payments.
