Issuance of Ginnie Mae mortgage-backed securities jumped more than 40 percent in its latest fiscal year, with jumbo issuance more than tripling.

During its fiscal-year 2015, which ended on Sept. 30, issuance of MBS on behalf of the Government National Mortgage Association totaled $432.445 billion.

Securitizations of the government-owned corporation’s MBS soared compared to the previous fiscal year, when $302.150 billion in MBS were issued.

The findings were based on an analysis of operational data released by Ginnie.

Making the biggest gain was issuance of jumbo MBS, which skyrocketed to $17.740 billion in fiscal-year 2015 from just $5.759 billion a year earlier.

During just September, overall issuance at the Washington-based organization was $40.894 billion.

Activity abated from August, when $44.904 billion in securities were issued.

But business was better than in September 2014, a month that saw volume of just $28.283 billion.

From Jan. 1 through Sept. 30 of this year, Ginnie’s total issuances amounted to $344.792 billion.

Residential issuances were $39.291 billion last month, less than the $43.404 billion in activity during August but more than the $26.957 billion issued in September 2014.

Included in residential issuance was $1.605 billion in jumbo MBS and $0.680 billion in securities backed by home-equity conversion mortgages.

Also factored into the overall total during September 2015 were $1.603 billion in
MBS backed by multifamily loans.

Multifamily MBS issuance was $1.500 billion a month
earlier and $1.326 billion a year earlier.
