CoBank is a cooperatively organized financial services institution capitalized primarily by eligible borrowers, who earn equity over time commensurate with the amount of business they do with the organization. We are also capitalized by our preferred stockholders.
CoBank does not have publicly traded stock and is not a registrant with the Securities and Exchange Commission. However, as a regulated member of the Farm Credit System, the bank releases its financial results on a quarterly basis, similar to a public company. Our financial statements are designed to provide customer-owners and other stakeholders with an accurate, transparent view of CoBank’s ongoing financial performance.
