Fed's Treasury and MBS holdings fall below $4 trillion

Sept 27 (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Reserve’s portfolio of Treasury and mortgage-backed securities, assembled through three rounds of purchases starting during the financial crisis, has dropped below $4 trillion for the first time in more than four years, according to Fed data.

The value of Treasuries and MBS dropped to $3.997 trillion as of Wednesday, as the Fed nears rounding out the first year of a process of slowly cutting back its holdings. At its peak, the portfolio totaled more than $4.25 trillion, and including other assets was valued at more than $4.5 trillion. (Reporting by Dan Burns Editing by Leslie Adler)
