Fannie, Freddie Subprime Holdings Continue to Run Off. The GSEsí holdings of nonprime mortgages continue to decline, largely due to runoff, according to a new analysis by Inside Nonconforming Markets, an affiliated publication. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac held a combined $252.2 billion of Alt A and subprime mortgage assets at the end of the second quarter, down 18.3 percent from 2Q13. Purchased/guaranteed mortgages account for 71.9 percent of the holdings, with the rest of the GSEsí nonprime exposure in non-agency mortgage-backed securities.

With originations expected to drop in 2018, will your shop turn to non-QM/non-prime mortgage products as a way to bolster volumes?

Yes, definitely. We’re planning a launch.


No. It’s still difficult compliance/regulatory-wise.


Maybe. It’s under consideration.


Not now. But things could change as 2018 progresses.
