Celebrating Over 30 years of the Fannie Mae DUS Program
Nearly 35 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 MBS. Alongside Fannie Mae’s guaranty of timely payment of principal and interest, DUS MBS offer lower-spread volatility relative to many comparable products, stable cash flows that are easy to model, superior call protection, and liquidity enhanced by the large number of dealers engaged in market making.
