Fannie Mae Prices $595 Million Multifamily DUS REMIC (FNA 2020-M53) Under Its GeMS Program

December 4, 2020

WASHINGTON, DC – Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTCQB) priced a $595 million Multifamily DUS® REMIC under its Fannie Mae Guaranteed Multifamily Structures (Fannie Mae GeMS™) program on December 3, 2020. FNA 2020-M53 marks the eleventh Fannie Mae GeMS issuance of 2020.

“We were pleased with the execution of the M53, which was able to take advantage of the tight market spreads heading into year end,” said Dan Dresser, Senior Vice President, Multifamily Capital Markets & Pricing. “The M53 is backed by our 12-year, fixed-rate DUS MBS collateral. The 12-year product with 11.5 years of call protection has grown into a benchmark issuance on its own, making up over 15% of our total DUS issuance for the past three years. The M53 was able to leverage this product in order to meet the current strong market demand for duration. With the M53 wrapping up our GeMS issuance for the year, we would like to thank the market stakeholders for their continued support and wish them the best in the coming year.”

All classes of FNA 2020-M53 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:
