WASHINGTON, DC – Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTC) announced today that the company issued $14.5 billion1 of multifamily MBS in the second quarter of 2015, primarily through its Delegated Underwriting and Servicing (DUS®) program.  Fannie Mae also resecuritized $3.0 billion of DUS MBS through its Guaranteed Multifamily Structures (Fannie Mae GeMS) program and issued $1.6 billion in ACES REMICs and Non-GeMS Megas backed by DUS MBS collateral from the broker-dealer community in the second quarter of 2015.

“Fannie Mae’s Lender partners had a great second quarter – production was robust and credit quality remained very strong.  Investors bought more than $19 billion in new issue Fannie Mae Multifamily securities during the quarter - including both MBS and structured products,” said Josh Seiff, Vice President of Multifamily Capital Markets & Trading, Fannie Mae.  “Globally, there was a lot going on in Q2 – a lot for investors to track. Despite that turbulence, DUS spreads were pretty stable.  Investors trust our risk sharing model – that demand translates into a consistent, reliable execution for Multifamily borrowers.”

The company’s DUS MBS securities provide market participants with highly predictable cash flows and call protection in defined maturities ranging from five to 30 years.  Fannie Mae’s GeMS program consists of structured multifamily securities created from collateral specifically selected by Fannie Mae Capital Markets.  Features of Fannie Mae GeMS include consistent monthly issuance, block size transactions, collateral diversity, and pricing close to par. 

Highlights of Fannie Mae’s multifamily activity in the second quarter of 2015 include the following:

1)      MULTIFAMILY MBS BACKED BY NEW MULTIFAMILY ACQUISITIONS

New multifamily MBS business volumes in the second quarter of 2015 totaled $14.5 billion. 

2)      FANNIE MAE GeMS ISSUANCE/STRUCTURED SECURITIES

Issuance of Fannie Mae’s structured multifamily securities created from collateral selected by Fannie Mae Capital Markets totaled $3.0 billion in the second quarter of 2015.  This issuance volume was generated from three Fannie Mae GeMS REMIC transactions.  In addition, Fannie Mae issued $1.6 billion in ACES REMICs and Non-GeMS Megas backed by DUS MBS collateral from the broker-dealer community in the second quarter of 2015, adding to the liquidity of Fannie Mae DUS MBS.

3)      FANNIE MAE SALES

Fannie Mae Capital Markets sold $3.9 billion of Fannie Mae multifamily mortgage securities from its portfolio in the second quarter of 2015.2
