Fannie Mae Priced $691 Million Multifamily DUS REMIC (FNA 2021-M13) Under Its GeMS Program

May 17, 2021
Milestone SOFR Offering Reinforces Fannie Mae’s Commitment to LIBOR Transition

WASHINGTON, DC – Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTCQB) priced a $691 million Multifamily DUS® REMIC under its Fannie Mae Guaranteed Multifamily Structures (Fannie Mae GeMS™) program on May 12, 2021. FNA 2021-M13 marks the sixth Fannie Mae GeMS issuance of 2021.

“With the M13, Fannie Mae marks another milestone in the market's transition away from LIBOR with its first CMBS backed by Secured Overnight Financing Rate (SOFR)-indexed collateral,” said Dan Dresser, Senior Vice President, Multifamily Capital Markets & Pricing. “The Group 1 collateral comprises our ARM 7-6 capped, floating-rate product, which has been SOFR-based since late 2020. The M13 also includes two fixed-rate groups of collateral and marks another GeMS program first with an A3 tranche backed by 12-year collateral. The A3 tranche offers a more call-protected option for investors requiring a more predictable maturity window. We continue to look for ways to attract new investors to the DUS and GeMS market and to help transition the market away from LIBOR.”

Through external engagement, including participation on the Alternative Reference Rates Committee (ARRC) and its working groups, and internal coordination through dedicated LIBOR transition program offices, Fannie Mae ceased purchasing and issuing LIBOR-based products and launched new SOFR-based offerings in 2020. Fannie Mae will continue to prepare for legacy LIBOR contract conversion in 2023 and will share additional information about its LIBOR transition efforts and milestones to provide full transparency to all stakeholders.

All classes of FNA 2021-M13 are guaranteed by Fannie Mae with respect to the full and timely payment of interest and principal. The structure details for the multi-tranche offering can be found in the table below:
