WASHINGTON, DC – Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTC) priced its tenth Multifamily DUS® REMIC in 2016 totaling $1.03 billion under its Fannie Mae Guaranteed Multifamily Structures (Fannie Mae GeMS™) program on November 3, 2016.

“We chose to bring our November deal as early as possible – before any potential market-moving macro events,” said Josh Seiff, Fannie Mae’s Vice President of Capital Markets and Trading. “The seven- and ten-year bonds cleared quickly at our initial price talk, though the investor base was a bit less broad than it has been recently. We expect to be in the market with one more deal before the New Year, likely timing is early December.”

All classes of FNA 2016-M12 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 are in the table below:
