May 8, 2014

This document contains forward-looking statements that describe the objectives, expectations, estimates, and assessments of the Federal Home Loan Bank of Cincinnati (FHLBank). These statements use words such as "anticipates," "expects," "believes," "could," "estimates," "may," and "should." By their nature, forward-looking statements relate to matters involving risks or uncertainties, some of which we may not be able to know, control, or completely manage. Actual future results could differ materially from those expressed or implied in forward-looking statements or could affect the extent to which we are able to realize an objective, expectation, estimate, or assessment. Some of the risks and uncertainties that could affect our forward-looking statements include the following:



? the effects of economic, financial, credit, market, and member conditions

on our financial condition and results of operations, including changes in

economic growth, general liquidity conditions, inflation and deflation,

interest rates, interest rate spreads, interest rate volatility, mortgage

originations, prepayment activity, housing prices, asset delinquencies,

and members' mergers and consolidations, deposit flows, liquidity needs,

and loan demand;



? political events, including legislative, regulatory, federal government,

judicial or other developments that could affect us, our members, our

counterparties, other FHLBanks and other government-sponsored enterprises

(GSEs), and/or investors in the Federal Home Loan Bank System's (FHLBank

System) debt securities, which are called Consolidated Obligations or Obligations;



? competitive forces, including those related to other sources of funding

available to members, to purchases of mortgage loans, and to our issuance

of Consolidated Obligations;



? the financial results and actions of other FHLBanks that could affect our

ability, in relation to the FHLBank System's joint and several liability

for Consolidated Obligations, to access the capital markets on favorable

terms or preserve our profitability, or could alter the regulations and legislation to which we are subject;



? changes in ratings assigned to FHLBank System Obligations or our FHLBank

that could raise our funding cost;

? changes in investor demand for Obligations;

? the volatility of market prices, interest rates, credit quality, and other indices that could affect the value of investments and collateral we hold



as security for member obligations and/or for counterparty obligations;

? the ability to attract and retain skilled management and other key employees;

? the ability to develop and support technology and information systems that

effectively manage the risks we face;



? the risk of loss arising from failures or interruptions in our ongoing

business operations, internal controls, information systems or other operating technologies;



? the ability to successfully manage new products and services; and

? the risk of loss arising from litigation filed against us or one or more

other FHLBanks.



We do not undertake any obligation to update any forward-looking statements made in this document.
