WASHINGTON, DC – Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTC) today announced that year-to-date through September, the company has issued $16.7 billion in multifamily MBS[1], surpassing total issuance for all of 2010 and on pace to exceed $20 billion by year end. Year-to-date through September, Fannie Mae also resecuritized $4.1 billion of DUS MBS through its Fannie Mae Guaranteed Multifamily Structures (Fannie Mae GeMS™) program and expects this resecuritization issuance to top $6 billion by the end of 2011. 

“Given the volatile market environment, Agency CMBS is thriving. Fannie Mae’s total activity, including MBS issuance, GeMS issuance and portfolio sales was the highest of any quarter this year. Over the past two years, we have seen a significant increase in securities available for trading. Our multifamily MBS outstanding now exceeds $90 billion,” said Kimberly Johnson, Vice President of Multifamily Capital Markets.

Fannie Mae provides the largest share of U.S. multifamily mortgage financing, and traditionally has been a leader in this market. The company’s DUS MBS securities provide market participants with investment securities offering easily-modeled cash flows, call protection and positive convexity in defined maturities of 5-, 7- and 10-years. Fannie Mae’s GeMS program consists of structured multifamily securities created from Fannie Mae’s portfolio. Fannie Mae GeMS offer market participants block size investments, collateral diversity and pricing close to par through Fannie Mae’s multifamily REMICs (ACES) and multifamily Mega securities.

Highlights of Fannie Mae’s multifamily activity through the third quarter of 2011 include the following:

1) MULTIFAMILY MBS BACKED BY NEW MULTIFAMILY ACQUISITIONS

New multifamily MBS business volumes in the third quarter of 2011 totaled $6.4 billion.  Year-to-date through September 30, 2011, new multifamily MBS business volumes totaled $16.7 billion. 

2)  FANNIE MAE GeMS ISSUANCE

Issuance of Fannie Mae’s structured multifamily securities created from its portfolio totaled $1.5 billion in the third quarter of 2011.  Year-to-date through September 30, 2011, Fannie Mae issued $4.1 billion in GeMS securities, including $2.6 billion in GeMS ACES and $1.5 billion in GeMS Megas.

3)  FANNIE MAE SALES

Fannie Mae Capital Markets sold $2.5 billion of multifamily mortgage securities in the third quarter of 2011, including sales of GeMS.  During the first three quarters, sales totaled $7.8 billion.
