Fannie Mae to Enhance Connecticut Avenue Securities File Layout

February 5, 2015

Effective beginning March 25, 2015, Fannie Mae will enhance its Connecticut Avenue Securities (CAS) file layout to disclose both a Borrower Credit Score where available and, where applicable and available, a Co-Borrower Credit Score for each reference obligation. This enhancement is designed to provide investors with additional insight into the credit-worthiness of the borrowers responsible for repayment of the mortgage obligation. 

The enhancement will apply to all files published for CAS on or after March 25, 2015. A file layout (PDF) and glossary (PDF) are provided to assist market participants in making this change. 

For questions, investors may contact the Fannie Mae Investor Helpline at 1-800-237-8627 or by e-mail.
