WASHINGTON, DC – Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTC), Freddie Mac (FMCC/OTCQB) and Common Securitization Solutions, LLC (CSS) today jointly announced an Industry Advisory Group to provide feedback and share information on efforts to build the Common Securitization Platform (CSP) and implement the Single Security.

In addition to Freddie Mac, Fannie Mae and CSS, participants in the Industry Advisory Group will come from:

  • The Center for Responsible Lending
  • Financial Services Roundtable
  • Fixed Income Clearing Corporation
  • Mortgage Bankers Association
  • Independent Community Bankers Association
  • American Bankers Association
  • Securities Industry and Financial Markets Association
  • Structured Finance Industry Group

The Single Security is a joint initiative of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the Enterprises), under the direction of the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA), to develop a single mortgage-backed security that will be issued by the Enterprises to finance fixed-rate mortgage loans backed by one- to four-unit single-family properties.

The CSP is a technology and operational platform that is being developed by CSS, a joint venture of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The CSP will perform many of the core back office operations for the Single Security, as well as most of the Enterprises' current securitization functions for single-family mortgages, on behalf of the Enterprises. The CSP is necessary for the implementation of the Single Security.

Fannie Mae enables people to buy, refinance, or rent homes.
