WASHINGTON, DC – Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTC) priced its third Multifamily DUS® REMIC in 2018 totaling $858.2 million under its Fannie Mae Guaranteed Multifamily Structures (Fannie Mae GeMS™) program on March 13, 2018.

“The M3 saw strong investor interest despite a week with heavy issuance volumes,” said Dan Dresser, Vice President, Multifamily Capital Markets, Trading & Credit Pricing. “The flexibility of the DUS program enabled us to offer the market a range of investment options, from a short floater to a longer, 12-year fixed-rate tranche. This diversity of products attracted several new investors to the program, ultimately increasing the liquidity of the Agency CMBS market and improving our borrowers’ financing execution.”

All classes of FNA 2018-M3 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:
