Agency MBS Issuance Plummets

September fixed-rate issuance falls 19% from August

Oct. 1, 2013

By Mortgage Daily staff

Last month's issuance of mortgage-backed securities for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Ginnie Mae plunged to the lowest level in two years.

Fixed-rate MBS issuance at the trio of government-controlled firms totaled $102.332 billion during September.

The last time the volume of agency securitizations was that low was in October 2011, when a revised $95.363 billion in conforming and government mortgages were securitized.

According to eMBS, which provides the monthly data, issuance was a revised $126.644 billion a month earlier and a revised $148.715 billion a year earlier.

Issuance of Fannie, Freddie and Ginnie MBS totaled $1.2570 trillion during the first nine months of 2013.

The biggest of the three companies, Washington, D.C.-based Fannie, saw its issuance sink to $49.964 billion last month from $61.929 billion in August. During the same month last year, Fannie's fixed-rate issuance was $79.920 billion.

Fannie has issued $601.875 billion so far during 2013 as of Sept. 30.

At Freddie, volume tumbled to $24.818 billion from $32.835 billion a month earlier and $32.966 billion a year earlier.

Year-to-date Sept. 30, fixed-rate issuance at McLean, Va.-based Freddie amounted to $348.115 billion.

Issuers of MBS for government-owned Ginnie generated $27.550 billion in securitizations last month, falling from $31.880 billion in August and $35.828 billion in September 2012.

Ginnie issuance totaled $306.984 billion so far during 2013.
