WASHINGTON, DC – Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTC) announced today that the company issued $12.6 billion1 of multifamily MBS in the first quarter of 2016, primarily through its Delegated Underwriting and Servicing (DUS®) program. Fannie Mae also resecuritized $2.7 billion of DUS MBS through its Guaranteed Multifamily Structures (Fannie Mae GeMS) program.

“The beginning of 2016 was a turbulent time for global markets,” said Josh Seiff, Vice President of Multifamily Capital Markets & Trading, Fannie Mae. “Our MBS execution and the DUS risk-sharing model helped protect borrowers from the increased volatility we saw in the credit markets. Fannie Mae Multifamily borrowers and lenders had great access to liquidity – investors purchased more than $15 billion in new issue securities and structured transactions in the first quarter of 2016."

The company’s DUS MBS securities provide market participants with highly predictable cash flows and call protection in defined maturities ranging from 5 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 first quarter of 2016 include the following:

  1. FANNIE MAE MBS BACKED BY NEW MULTIFAMILY ACQUISITIONS
    New multifamily MBS business volumes in the first quarter of 2016 totaled $12.6 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 $2.7 billion in the first quarter of 2016. This issuance volume included three Fannie Mae GeMS REMIC transactions. In addition, Fannie Mae issued $301 million in Non-GeMS Megas backed by DUS MBS collateral from the broker-dealer community in the first quarter of 2016, adding to the liquidity of Fannie Mae DUS MBS.
  3. FANNIE MAE SALES
    Fannie Mae Capital Markets sold $6.2 billion of Fannie Mae multifamily mortgage securities from its portfolio in the first quarter of 2016.2
