You will still be able to search for individual securities, complete advanced searches and create and save securities to a personalized portfolio. In addition, you will be able to:

  • Retrieve issuance and monthly disclosure files for single-family MBS, UMBS, Fannie Megas®, Supers, and REMICs, all in one centralized location;
  • View new attributes and data enumerations on your securities; and
  • Access a consolidated view of all Fannie Majors® available for delivery.
