CRT Update, Fannie Mae Prices $1B CAS Credit-Risk Transfer Deal
August 25, 2017
The GSEs’ credit-risk transfer program remained healthy in the second quarter having issued a combined $4.48 billion of credit-risk transfer debt. That’s up 5.8 percent from the first quarter but an impressive 25.4 percent more than midyear in 2016. Moreover, since the second quarter, Fannie has already priced two more of its popular Connecticut Avenue Securities risk-sharing deals. July and August marked the 5th and 6th transaction of CAS deals issued this year. The most recent deal was CAS Series 2017-CO6, a note offering $1.069 billion that was expected to settle this week.
