Freddie Issuance Surges as Fannie, Ginnie Slow

Agency MBS issuance off 3% in March

April 1, 2013

By Mortgage Daily staff

A nearly one-quarter jump in issuance at the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp. wasn't enough to overcome a month-over-month slump at the Federal National Mortgage Association and Government National Mortgage Association.

The issuance of fixed-rate mortgage-backed securities at all three government-controlled housing finance agencies totaled $145.287 billion during March.

Agency MBS issuance slowed from a month earlier, when issuers put out $150.374 billion in fixed-rate MBS guaranteed by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac or Ginnie Mae.

Securitization volume was also less than March 2012, when agency issuance amounted to $148.223 billion.

The data was provided by eMBS.

Freddie saw issuance surge to $49.002 billion from February's $40.726 billion. The McLean, Va.-based company also had more activity than a year earlier, when $35.488 billion in MBS were issued.

Issuers of Freddie securities generated $129.541 billion in fixed-rate MBS issuances during the first three months of 2013.

Fannie's issuances fell to $63.523 billion in March from $74.349 billion and were also worse than $83.935 billion in the same month last year. The Washington, D.C.-based firm's year-to-date business totaled $218.200 billion.

Ginnie also lost ground last month, with business slipping to $32.762 billion from February's $35.299 billion. Ginnie, which like Fannie is based in the nation's capitol, increased issuance from $25.800 billion in March 2012.

From Jan. 1 through March 31, issuance of Ginnie MBS totaled $102.308 billion.
