Stress Test Results

August 13, 2021

WASHINGTON, DC – As required under the Dodd-Frank legislation, Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTCQB) conducted a stress test in 2020 and 2021 reflecting two hypothetical economic scenarios. The results of the severely adverse scenario for both tests were published today by the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) and Fannie Mae.

Fannie Mae's projected performance in the hypothetical severely adverse scenario has improved significantly since the implementation of the regulatory stress testing requirement eight years ago. Fannie Mae’s strong underwriting and prudent risk reduction practices have resulted in declines in risk exposures and hypothetical stress losses while allowing the company to maintain its mission to provide liquidity in all U.S. markets and in all economic cycles.

The hypothetical severely adverse scenario was created by the FHFA and can be found on FHFA’s website, along with FHFA’s press release on the results. Fannie Mae’s results can be found on 2021 Results and 2020 Results.
