Fannie Mae MBS Structured Transactions Update: Four New REMIC Backed Mega Prefixes Available for Issuance after January 1, 2012

Fannie Mae has long offered MBS market participants the ability to re-securitize certain outstanding REMIC tranches into pass-through securities. To better serve our investors and increase the liquidity in the secondary mortgage market, Fannie Mae is introducing four new REMIC-Backed Mega prefixes. These prefixes will be available after January 1, 2012. For more information about the REMIC-Backed Mega program please see the related announcement.
