Who is Fannie Mae Today?
As the leading source of residential mortgage credit in the U.S. secondary market, Fannie Mae is supporting today's economic recovery and helping to build a sustainable housing finance system. We exist to provide large-scale access to affordable mortgage credit in all communities across the country at all times so people can buy, refinance, or rent a home.
We are working to establish and implement industry standards‚ develop better tools to price and manage credit risk‚ build new infrastructure to ensure a liquid and efficient market‚ and facilitate the collection and reporting of data for accurate financial reporting and improved risk management.
Ultimately‚ we measure our progress not only by paying taxpayers and improving the housing finance system‚ but also by the difference we make in people’s lives.
