Fannie Mae issued about $9.1 billion of multifamily MBS in the third quarter backed by new multifamily loans delivered by its lenders.

This was nearly double the volume issued in the second quarter of 2014. 

“We are extremely pleased to report approximately $9.1 billion in Fannie Mae multifamily MBS for the third quarter,” said Hilary Provinse, Senior Vice President for Multifamily Customer Engagement, Fannie Mae.  “With the continued solid performance of our multifamily MBS and steady multifamily fundamentals, the third quarter presented a great opportunity for Fannie Mae to provide increased liquidity to the market.”

The company’s DUS MBS securities provide market participants with highly predictable cash flows and call protection in defined maturities of five, seven and ten years.
