Fannie Mae recently introduced the industry’s leading innovation in mortgage credit risk transfer, the CAS REMIC that furthers the ability to broaden the investor base. CAS deal structures from 2018-R07 forward are known as CAS REMICs, issued by a bankruptcy remote trust.

  • CAS REMIC Notes satisfy all of the REIT income and asset tests for tax purposes
  • Removal of tax withholding restrictions for non-U.S. investors in all tranches
  • Helps insulate investors from potential future counterparty risk exposure to Fannie Mae
  • Simplifies and aligns tax treatment of CAS with other mortgage related securities

This page consolidates all our published information related to the CAS REMIC proposal and structure for market participants.
