Fannie Mae Reports Fourth Quarter and Full-Year 2016 Financial Results
Our strong 2016 results reflect a multi-year drive to improve Fannie Mae's business model, strengthen the housing finance system, and deliver innovation and certainty to customers. We delivered new technologies that reduce risk and cost for our Single-Family customers and help them make the mortgage process simpler, more certain, and easier for borrowers. Our Multifamily business achieved record volume in 2016, and we deepened our commitment to delivering solutions that support affordable and workforce housing. We look forward to another year of progress as we continue to improve our operations and deliver greater value to our partners, the industry, taxpayers, and the housing market.
