Buy Mortgage Backed Securities


Our Single-Family business provides liquidity to the mortgage market primarily by acquiring single-family loans from lenders and securitizing those loans into Fannie Mae MBS. Our Single-Family Business also supports liquidity in the mortgage market and the businesses of our lender customers through other activities, such as issuing structured Fannie Mae MBS backed by single-family mortgage assets and buying and selling single-family Agency MBS.

A single-family loan is secured by a property with four or fewer residential units. Our Single-Family Business securitizes and purchases primarily conventional (not federally insured or guaranteed) single-family fixed-rate or adjustable-rate, first-lien mortgage loans, or mortgage-related securities backed by these types of loans. We also securitize or purchase loans insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), loans guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), loans guaranteed by the Rural Development Housing and Community Facilities Program of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and other mortgage-related securities.


Similarly, our Multifamily business provides liquidity to the commercial mortgage market by acquiring multifamily loans primarily from its national network of Delegated Underwriting and Servicing (DUS) lender partners. These loans are secured by several types of multifamily properties, including apartment buildings, manufactured housing communities, seniors housing, dedicated student housing, affordable housing, and cooperatives with five or more individual units. Fannie Mae securitizes those loans into Fannie Mae DUS MBS and enables the lenders to auction the securities to the market. In addition, Fannie Mae participates in the secondary market, buying and selling DUS MBS and enabling investors to create structured securities backed by DUS MBS.


Fannie Mae MBS offers investors high-quality assets with attractive yields to fit various portfolio needs or investment strategies. Investors should exercise care to fully understand the value of any mortgage-backed investment and diligently review the applicable disclosure documents. Investors may want to work with their investment advisors to identify the potential risks versus reward of investing in MBS.


Fannie Mae Supers (Supers) are single-class pass-through, 55-day TBA-eligible securities in which the underlying collateral are groups of existing UMBS and/or Supers. Megas (Megas) are single-class pass-through, Non-TBA-eligible securities in which the underlying collateral consists of groups of existing Fannie Mae Non-TBA MBS and/or Fannie Mae Megas. A Real Estate Mortgage Investment Conduit (REMIC) is a type of multiclass mortgage-related security in which interest and principal payments from the mortgage-related assets serving as collateral are structured into separately traded securities called classes. Stripped mortgage-backed securities (SMBS) are multiclass, pass-through, grantor trust securities created by "stripping apart" the principal and interest payments from the underlying mortgage-related collateral into two or more classes of securities. In another type of SMBS transaction, excess servicing is stripped from base servicing on loans backing Fannie Mae MBS and issued solely as interest-only (IO) bond.


A mortgage-backed security is a securitized form of mortgage loans. The loans are pooled together, and a security is created, which can be traded on an exchange."}},"@type": "Question","name": "Are Mortgage Backed Securities a Good Investment?","acceptedAnswer": "@type": "Answer","text": "Mortgage-backed securities can play a part in an investment portfolio; however, individual investors may have difficulty assessing the creditworthiness of the security issuer.

Mortgage-backed securities were less regulated in the past and contributed to the Great Financial Crisis. They have since become subject to more regulation, but they are still considered risky for retail investors.


Mortgage-backed securities can play a part in an investment portfolio; however, individual investors may have difficulty assessing the creditworthiness of the security issuer. This complexity adds additional risk that should be discussed with a professional financial advisor to see if an MBS fund is right for your financial circumstances.


A mortgage-backed security exchange-traded fund is a fund made up of selected mortgage-backed securities. The fund is then traded on an exchange, allowing investors to gain exposure to bundles of mortgage-backed securities rather than single MBSs.


BackgroundIn response to the emerging financial crisis, and in order to mitigate its implications for the U.S. economy and financial system, the Federal Reserve eased the stance of monetary policy aggressively throughout 2008 by reducing the target for the federal funds rate. By December of 2008, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) had reduced its target federal funds rate to a range of between 0 and 1/4 percent. With the target federal funds rate at the effective lower bound, the FOMC sought to provide additional policy stimulus by expanding the holdings of longer term securities in its portfolio, the System Open Market Account (SOMA), including large-scale purchases of fixed-rate, mortgage-backed securities (MBS) guaranteed by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac, and Ginnie Mae (referred to as "agency MBS"). The purchases were intended to lower longer-term interest rates and contribute to an overall easing of financial conditions.


Open market operations, the purchase and sale of securities by the Federal Reserve, have historically been the primary means by which the Federal Reserve implements monetary policy. The authority to conduct open market operations is granted under Section 14 of the Federal Reserve Act. Open market operations are conducted by the Trading Desk at the Federal Reserve Bank of New York (FRBNY), in compliance with authorizations, policies, and procedures established by the FOMC. The FRBNY's counterparties for open market operations are primary dealers, that is, banks and securities brokerages that the FRBNY has designated as counterparties for its operations.


Transactions include purchases and sales at the trade date. Some of the purchases and sales were associated with dollar roll and coupon swap transactions that were conducted to help meet the programs' objectives and to facilitate the settlement of the initial purchases. Because most of the agency MBS trades are conducted based on the general characteristics of the security, the actual securities (CUSIPs) delivered may vary, within the trade-specified delivery standards. 041b061a72
