WASHINGTON, DC – Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTC) announced today that the company issued $17.9 billion1 of multifamily mortgage-backed securities (MBS) in the third quarter of 2016, primarily through its Delegated Underwriting and Servicing (DUS®) program.  Fannie Mae also resecuritized $2.1 billion of DUS MBS through its Guaranteed Multifamily Structures (Fannie Mae GeMS) program.

“Hats off to the Fannie Mae Multifamily Lenders for a fantastic third quarter,” said Josh Seiff, vice president of Multifamily Capital Markets & Trading, Fannie Mae. “When I look at our third quarter production, the numbers that are most impressive are 2.1 times actual DSCR (debt service coverage ratio) and 69 percent LTV (loan-to-value) ratio. Maintaining that level of credit quality while issuing nearly $18 billion in MBS to end investors is outstanding. It is a reflection of the strong credit culture created by a long standing risk-sharing partnership between Fannie Mae and the DUS lender community.”

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 third quarter of 2016 include the following:

  1. MULTIFAMILY MBS BACKED BY NEW MULTIFAMILY ACQUISITIONS

    New multifamily MBS business volumes in the third quarter of 2016 totaled $17.9 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 $2.1 billion in the third quarter of 2016.  This issuance volume included two Fannie Mae GeMS REMIC transactions.  In addition, Fannie Mae issued $2.1 billion in Non-GeMS REMICs and Megas backed by DUS MBS collateral from the broker-dealer community in the third quarter of 2016, adding to the liquidity of Fannie Mae DUS MBS. 

  3. FANNIE MAE SALES

    Fannie Mae Capital Markets sold $3.7 billion of Fannie Mae multifamily mortgage securities from its portfolio in the third quarter of 2016.2
