WASHINGTON, DC – Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTCQB) priced its third Multifamily DUS® REMIC in 2019 totaling $718.5 million under its Fannie Mae Guaranteed Multifamily Structures (Fannie Mae GeMS™) program on March 21, 2019.

“In a week marked by heavy new issuance, a rate rally, and end-of-quarter portfolio constraints, we were pleased that so many of our GeMS investors were able to participate in this month’s transaction,” said Dan Dresser, Vice President, Multifamily Capital Markets & Credit Pricing. “The M4 included a group of ARM 7-6 collateral – a floating-rate product designed for smaller borrowers. Our ability to successfully resecuritize this production ensures access to capital for an important subset of borrowers.”

All classes of FNA 2019-M4 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:
