WASHINGTON, DC – Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTC) priced its second Multifamily DUS® REMIC in 2018 totaling $904.5 million under its Fannie Mae Guaranteed Multifamily Structures (Fannie Mae GeMS™) program on February 7, 2018.

“The ability of our GeMS program to place $900 million of long duration paper in a week marked by significant market volatility is a testament to the stable cash flows and strong credit performance of the DUS MBS collateral behind the M2,” said Dan Dresser, Vice President, Multifamily Capital Markets, Trading & Credit Pricing. “In addition, the M2 transaction builds upon Fannie Mae’s Green Financing Business, which has issued over $30 billion in DUS Green MBS and $3.4 billion in Green GeMS tranches. The M2 marks the second GeMS deal that is entirely backed by Green MBS.”

All classes of FNA 2018-M2 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:
