WASHINGTON, DC – Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTC) issued approximately $3.5 billion1 of multifamily MBS in the first quarter of 2014, backed by new multifamily loans delivered by its lenders.  Fannie Mae also resecuritized $3.3 billion of DUS® MBS through its Fannie Mae Guaranteed Multifamily Structures (Fannie Mae GeMSTM) program in the first quarter of the year.    

“We continued to be a consistent issuer of structured securities through our GeMS program, with higher issuance in Q1 2014 than Q1 2013, despite the broader market slowdown,” said Manny Menendez, Senior Vice President of Multifamily Capital Markets & Pricing, Fannie Mae.

The company’s DUS MBS securities provide market participants with highly predictable cash flows and call protection in defined maturities of five, seven and ten years.  Fannie Mae’s GeMS program consists of structured multifamily securities created from collateral specifically selected by Fannie Mae Capital Markets.  Features of Fannie Mae GeMS have included block size transactions, collateral diversity and pricing close to par through Fannie Mae’s multifamily REMICs and multifamily Mega securities.

Highlights of Fannie Mae’s multifamily activity in the first quarter of 2014 include the following:

1)  MULTIFAMILY MBS BACKED BY NEW MULTIFAMILY ACQUISITIONS

New multifamily MBS business volumes in the first quarter of 2014 totaled approximately $3.5 billion.    

2)  FANNIE MAE GeMS ISSUANCE

Issuance of Fannie Mae’s structured multifamily securities created from collateral selected by Fannie Mae Capital Markets totaled $3.3 billion in the first quarter of 2014.  This issuance volume is composed of three Fannie Mae GeMS REMIC transactions.  Total GeMS issuance volume in the first quarter of 2012 and 2013 was $2.6 billion and $3.2 billion, respectively.

3)  FANNIE MAE SALES

Fannie Mae Capital Markets sold approximately $3.9 billion of Fannie Mae multifamily mortgage securities from its portfolio in the first quarter of 2014.2
