FHFA’s Proposed G-fee Increase Enjoys Little Industry Support

As the Federal Housing Finance Agency mulls over a proposed increase in fees charged by the GSEs to provide guarantees on mortgage-backed securities, so far those advocating for a g-fee hike remain in the minority. The Securities Industry and Financial Markets isn’t flatly opposed to an increase in g-fees under certain conditions but policy makers should “consider the broader context” in which the guaranty fee will be raised.

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.
