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.
