WASHINGTON, July 27, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Fannie Mae (OTC Bulletin Board: FNMA) today announced that in the first half of 2011, the company issued $10.3 billion in MBS backed by new multifamily acquisitions delivered by our lenders, and sold $5.3 billion in MBS pools and GeMS™ structured transactions, enhancing tradable float and supporting liquidity in the multifamily MBS market.
"In today's economic environment, Fannie Mae continues to deliver liquidity to the multifamily housing market and provide investment options to market participants," said Kimberly Johnson, Fannie Mae Vice President for Multifamily Capital Markets. "Through our multifamily MBS issuance (including DUS MBS, GeMS™ structured transactions and portfolio activities), Fannie Mae provided market participants with considerable volume and a variety of execution options in the first half of 2011."
Beginning in 2009, Fannie Mae made reinvigoration of its multifamily MBS business and broadening the investor base a top priority. By ramping up its MBS execution and transforming the multifamily capital markets business, Fannie Mae has shifted from being primarily a multifamily portfolio market participant to one that provides liquidity to the multifamily market mainly through securitization.
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, superior call protection and positive convexity in defined maturities of 5-, 7- and 10-years. Fannie Mae's Guaranteed Multifamily Structures (Fannie Mae 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 its multifamily REMICs (ACES) and multifamily Mega securities.
Highlights of Fannie Mae's activity in the first half of 2011 include the following:
1) MULTIFAMILY MBS BACKED BY NEW MULTIFAMILY ACQUISITIONS
New multifamily MBS business volumes through June 30, 2011 totaled $10.3 billion.
2) GeMS ISSUANCE
Issuance of Fannie Mae's structured multifamily securities created from its portfolio totaled $2.6 billion, including $1.2 billion in GeMS™ ACES and $1.4 billion in GeMS™ Megas through June 30, 2011.
3) SALES FROM PORTFOLIO
