Fannie Mae


Ten years after the subprime mortgage crisis, Fannie Mae posted an impressive 2018, with profits up an outstanding 548%, to just under $16 billion. Fannie provided roughly $512 billion in liquidity to the U.S. mortgage market last year and represented nearly 40% of all new single-family mortgage-related securities issuances. It also financed $65.4 billion to the multifamily housing sector, helping to create 777,000 new apartments in the process. Meanwhile, the government-sponsored enterprise could soon shed one of its last vestiges of the financial crisis, with the Trump administration pushing for an end to the federal conservatorship of both Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
