WASHINGTON, DC – Fannie Mae (FNMA/OTC) announced today that the company issued $7.3 billion1 of multifamily MBS in the third quarter of 2015, primarily through its Delegated Underwriting and Servicing (DUS®) program. Fannie Mae also resecuritized $1.9 billion of DUS MBS through its Guaranteed Multifamily Structures (Fannie Mae GeMS) program in the third quarter.

“Investors purchased more than $9 billion in new issue multifamily securities despite the jittery markets in August and September,” said Josh Seiff, Vice President of Multifamily Capital Markets & Trading, Fannie Mae. “Fannie Mae Multifamily MBS stand out in this kind of market, providing greater spread stability than many other products due to consistent underwriting and lender risk sharing. Our MBS align the interests of the lender and the investor – it’s easier to invest when you’re confident that everyone is working towards the same goals.”

The company’s DUS MBS securities provide market participants with highly predictable cash flows and call protection in defined maturities ranging from five to 30 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 include consistent monthly issuance, block size transactions, collateral diversity, and pricing close to par. 

Highlights of Fannie Mae’s multifamily activity in the third quarter of 2015 include the following:

  1. MULTIFAMILY MBS BACKED BY NEW MULTIFAMILY ACQUISITIONS

    New multifamily MBS business volumes in the third quarter of 2015 totaled $7.3 billion. 

  2. FANNIE MAE GeMS ISSUANCE/STRUCTURED SECURITIES

    Issuance of Fannie Mae’s structured multifamily securities created from collateral selected by Fannie Mae Capital Markets totaled $1.9 billion in the third quarter of 2015. This issuance volume included two Fannie Mae GeMS REMIC transactions for $1.8 billion and one GeMS Mega transaction for $75.6 million. In addition, Fannie Mae issued $160 million in ACES REMICs and Non-GeMS Mega backed by DUS MBS collateral from the broker-dealer community in the third quarter of 2015, adding to the liquidity of Fannie Mae DUS MBS.

  3. FANNIE MAE SALES

    Fannie Mae Capital Markets sold $6.7 billion of Fannie Mae multifamily mortgage securities from its portfolio in the third quarter of 2015.2
