Forecast: GSE Risk-Sharing Deals To Exceed FHFA’s 2014 Goal
June 27, 2014
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are expected to continue issuing more risk-transfer deals even though both GSEs have effectively reached their 2014 targets. But some of the potential upside for investors has dissipated, according to separate analyses by Fitch Ratings and Wells Fargo Securities. Tight pricing on mortgage risk transfer securities issued by Fannie and Freddie indicates a “growing appetite for this relatively new and unique form of mortgage risk,” noted Fitch.
