WASHINGTON, DC – Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTCQB) priced its third Green Multifamily DUS® REMIC in 2019 totaling $1.1 billion under its Fannie Mae Guaranteed Multifamily Structures (Fannie Mae GeMS) program on October 17, 2019. FNA 2019-M22 marks the ninth Fannie Mae GeMS issuance of 2019.

"The M22 marks Fannie Mae's largest single Green GeMS deal to date at $1.1 billion, bringing our total structured Green REMIC issuance to $9 billion and further supporting our commitment to offering socially responsible investment opportunities," said Dan Dresser, Vice President Capital Markets & Pricing. "The deal reflects the geographical diversity of our Green Financing Program with 15 states represented across the 48 underlying securities. We received solid interest in a busy week with competing transactions – a nice start to the fourth quarter."
