Business volume was comprised of $57.6 billion in mortgage backed securities (MBS) acquired by others and $17.6 billion in portfolio purchases, said the government sponsored enterprise.
Fannie reported its book of business totaled close to $2.2 trillion. Outstanding MBS of $1.3 trillion and a gross mortgage portfolio of $0.9 trillion accounted for the book’s total.
The government sponsored housing enterprise reported single-family delinquency at 0.57%, one basis point below the prior month.
The duration gap on the mortgage portfolio averaged -1, compared to the previous two months’ unchanged figure of +1, according to the report.
