Monthly business was better at Fannie Mae, which has a new chief financial officer.
New business acquisitions were $66.4 billion during July, according to the Washington, D.C.-based company's monthly summary released today. Volume rose from $64.0 billion in June and $42.8 billion a year earlier.
Fannie reported its total book of business at $2.702 trillion on July 31, up from $2.671 trillion the previous month. The book of business included a $0.730 trillion gross mortgage portfolio and net outstanding mortgage-backed securities and other guarantees of $1.972 trillion.
Single-family delinquency of at least 90 days, reported on a one-month lag, was 0.64 percent on June 30, up from 0.62 percent on May 31, the summary said. Multifamily delinquency ended June at 0.09 percent -- two basis points lower the prior month.
Fannie reported its duration gap at a positive one month, unchanged from June, and $59.2 billion in liquid investments as of July 31.
