WASHINGTON, DC – Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTCQB) priced its seventh Multifamily DUS® REMIC in 2019 totaling $802 million under its Fannie Mae Guaranteed Multifamily Structures (Fannie Mae GeMS™) program on July 16, 2019.

“The M12 marks Fannie Mae’s 90th GeMS deal since Fannie Mae’s trading desk began to market its own REMIC products under the banner in 2011,” said Dan Dresser, Vice President Capital Markets & Pricing. “As much as the GeMS program enables Fannie Mae to customize structures for investors, its sister program, ACES, provides that same opportunity for all DUS market participants – investor and broker-dealer alike. As this low interest rate environment settles in and the market attempts to cope with high premium bonds, Fannie Mae’s Multifamily program offers the flexibility to structure a portfolio solution.”

All classes of FNA 2019-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 can be found in the table below:
