Celebrating 30 years of the Fannie Mae DUS Program
Thirty years ago in 1988, Fannie Mae began purchasing multifamily loans through its DUS program and holding these loans in portfolio. In August 1994, the company began securitizing DUS loans and created DUS Mortgage-Backed Securities (DUS MBS). DUS MBS offer Fannie Mae’s guaranty of timely payment of principal and interest, lower spread volatility relative to many comparable products, liquidity enhanced by the large number of dealers engaged in market making, stable cash flows that are easy to model, and superior call protection.

Fannie Mae has been under Federal Housing Finance Agency conservatorship since Sept. 6, 2008.

We also have entered into a senior preferred stock purchase agreement with the U.S. Department of the Treasury pursuant to which Treasury has committed to provide funding to us under specified circumstances.

More information regarding the conservatorship and our agreement with Treasury is provided in our most recent Form 10-K, and may be supplemented by information in any subsequent Form 10-Qs, which are available under "SEC Filings."
