Fannie Mae Priced $879 Million Green Multifamily DUS REMIC (FNA 2021-M2G) Under Its GeMS Program
WASHINGTON, DC – Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTCQB) priced an $879 million Green Multifamily DUS® REMIC under its Fannie Mae Guaranteed Multifamily Structures (Fannie Mae GeMS™) program on June 16, 2021. FNA 2021-M2G marks the seventh Fannie Mae GeMS issuance of 2021.
“The M2G was our second GeMS deal of the year that is backed by our Green MBS collateral, and the first since 2017 backed entirely by collateral holding a Fannie Mae-recognized Green Building Certification,” said Dan Dresser, Senior Vice President, Multifamily Capital Markets & Pricing. “We were pleased with the demand given the lower yield environment, current spread levels, and the availability of competing green bond investment opportunities.”
In the second decade of its Multifamily Green Financing business, Fannie Mae remains committed to generating positive environmental and social impact through our two Multifamily Green products types: our Green Building Certification (GBC) program and Green Rewards, our energy- and water consumption-reduction program. Combined, we have issued more than $95 billion of Multifamily MBS backed by these financing products. Through the Fannie Mae GeMS program, we have re-securitized an additional $12.6 billion in REMICs backed by Green MBS.
“Through our GeMS program, we are able to provide the same level of rigor and environmental impact to investors as our DUS MBS with increased geographic diversity and in block sizes across the yield curve,” said Lisa Bozzelli, Senior Director, Multifamily Capital Markets. “The M2G pricing corresponds with the issuance of Fannie Mae’s 2020 Green Bond Impact Report, which provides impact metrics across the Fannie Mae multifamily and single-family MBS portfolio and on a CUSIP level.”
The FNA 2021-M2G marks the third GeMS of the year issued under Fannie Mae’s recently published Sustainable Bond Framework, which covers Fannie Mae’s issuance of sustainable, social, and green bonds and incorporates Fannie Mae’s Multifamily Green Bond Framework. The Fannie Mae Green MBS program has received a “light green” second-party opinion (SPO) from CICERO. The Sustainable Bond Framework, Green Bond Framework, CICERO’s SPO, issuance tracking, and other resources can be found on Fannie Mae’s new Sustainable Bonds website, launched to provide investors a single site for Multifamily and Single-Family green and social bonds.
All classes of FNA 2021-M2G 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:
