WASHINGTON, DC – Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTC) announced today that the company issued $9.8 billion1 of multifamily MBS in the fourth quarter of 2015, primarily through its Delegated Underwriting and Servicing (DUS®) program. Fannie Mae also resecuritized $3.3 billion of DUS MBS through its Guaranteed Multifamily Structures (Fannie Mae GeMS) program.

“We finished the year strong with $9.8 billion in new issue securities in the fourth quarter, and near record volume of $42 billion for the year,” said Josh Seiff, Vice President of Multifamily Capital Markets & Trading, Fannie Mae. “DUS lenders priced Multifamily MBS nearly every single trading day in 2015. The lenders also retain credit risk on those loans. That’s a combination of risk alignment and pricing transparency you don’t see in other commercial real estate securities. Our model has served borrowers and investors well for the last 28 years – we expect to continue to lead the market in credit quality, risk alignment and transparency in 2016.”

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 fourth quarter of 2015 include the following:

  1. MULTIFAMILY MBS BACKED BY NEW MULTIFAMILY ACQUISITIONS
    New multifamily MBS business volumes in the fourth quarter of 2015 totaled $9.8 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 $3.3 billion in the fourth quarter of 2015.  This issuance volume included three Fannie Mae GeMS REMIC transactions for $3.1 billion and three GeMS Mega transactions for $230.7 million.  In addition, Fannie Mae issued $3.7 billion in ACES REMICs and Non-GeMS Megas backed by DUS MBS collateral from the broker-dealer community in the fourth quarter of 2015, adding to the liquidity of Fannie Mae DUS MBS.
  3. FANNIE MAE SALES
    Fannie Mae Capital Markets sold $9.6 billion of Fannie Mae multifamily mortgage securities from its portfolio in the fourth quarter of 2015.2
