WASHINGTON, D.C. – Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTC) priced its first Multifamily DUS® REMIC in 2015 totaling $1.22 billion under its Fannie Mae Guaranteed Multifamily Structures (Fannie Mae GeMS) program on January 14, 2015.

"We saw strong demand for FNA 2015-M1 despite the tough market conditions.  Rates are moving fast and there's a tremendous amount of new issue paper out there. Investors have a lot of choices – it is hard to get their focus – but this deal clearly did," said Josh Seiff, Fannie Mae's Vice President of Multifamily Capital Markets Trading.  "No other securitized product has a comparable requirement for lenders to hold a first-loss piece – the DUS lender, the investor and Fannie Mae all have an interest in the strong performance of the underlying mortgage loans.  This is evident in the performance of DUS MBS over the last twenty some years and you can see this in the resilience and liquidity of our GeMS deals in the market."

All classes of FNA 2015-M1 are guaranteed by Fannie Mae with respect to the full and timely payment of interest and principal.  The structure details for the multi-tranche offering are in the table below:
