Freddie Mac launched a new credit risk-transfer offering late last week that’s structured more like a non-agency mortgage backed security. One analyst said it could prompt more participation from real estate investment trusts. The $300 million offering, the Freddie Mac Whole Loan Security, features a $278 million senior class guaranteed by the GSE and a $23 million subordinate actual-loss security. WLS 2015 SC01 is backed by super-conforming loans originated in the fourth quarter of 2014 and early 2015. The GSE said by shifting some of its credit risk from the underlying mortgages to subordinate investors, the new offering compliments its Structured Agency Credit Risk and Agency Credit Insurance offerings.
