Fannie Prices Second Risk-Share Deal, Hits 2014 FHFA Goal

Fannie Mae last week priced its second credit risk-sharing deal of 2014, the first to be backed by higher loan-to-value mortgages. The $1.6 billion note is the GSE’s third and largest transaction under its Connecticut Avenue Securities series since the Federal Housing Finance Agency ordered both Fannie and Freddie Mac to shrink the GSEs’ role in the U.S. housing market last year. In its latest offering – Series 2014-C02 – Fannie included reference loans with original LTV ratios of up to 97 percent. Previous C-deal offerings included reference loans with up to 80 percent original LTV ratios.

After the November elections, how long will it take for a new Congress and White House to pass GSE reform legislation?

I’m confident a bill will be passed the first year.


2 to 3 years. GSE reform is complicated.


Sadly it won’t happen in a Clinton or Trump first term.


Not in my lifetime.
