Fannie Mae is releasing a loan-level credit performance data on 18 million mortgages, which will help develop potential risk sharing transactions.
Fannie Mae announced that it is making loan-level credit performance data available on over 18 million single-family mortgages that the company acquired since 2000. The new data will help investors model the credit performance of loans owned or guaranteed by Fannie Mae as the company works with the Federal Housing Finance Agency to develop potential risk sharing transactions.
Andrew Bon Salle, the Executive Vice President, Single-Family Underwriting, Pricing and Capital Markets of Fannie Mae, believes this move will help set up a strong financial system. “Transparency is a key component to encouraging private capital to reenter the housing market,” he said. “Our goal is to enable better modeling and understanding of the credit performance of Fannie Mae loans. Bringing private capital in to share some credit risk will help lay the foundation for a stronger mortgage finance system for the future.”
The credit performance dataset will be updated on a quarterly basis. You can read more information about the dataset on the Fannie Mae website.
