Fannie Mae's MBS Issuance Soars to 19-Month High

Overall agency issuance climbs

Sept. 4, 2018

By Mortgage Daily staff

Securitizations of residential loans that are backed by the Federal National Mortgage Association soared to a 19-month high, leading overall agency issuance higher.

Issuance of fixed-rate mortgage-backed securities on behalf of Fannie Mae, the Federal Home Loan Mortgage Corp. and the Government National Mortgage Association totaled $114,650 billion in August.

Agency securitizations leapt from $99.562 billion one month previous. But a slight deceleration was recorded versus a downwardly revised $116.379 billion twelve months previous.

eMBS provided the data to Mortgage Daily.

During the eight months ended Aug. 31, fixed-rate agency issuance came to $775.553 billion.

Last month's MBS issuance at Fannie was $49.123 billion -- the biggest month since $52.660 billion was issued in January 2017. Fannie's issuance was 26 percent stronger than July and up 5 percent from August 2017. Year-to-date issuance at the Washington-based firm amounted to $316.344 billion.

A 13 percent increase from a month earlier left Freddie Mac's August issuance at $29.210 billion. Securitizations at the McLean, Virginia-based firm rose 3 percent from a year earlier. In the first-eight months of 2018, Freddie's issuance was $198.994 billion.

Government-owned Ginnie Mae generated $36.317 billion in MBS issuance, 5 percent more than in July but down 12 percent from August of last year. Ginnie's year-to-date issuance was $260.215 billion.
