Like its sister Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac also delivered significant earnings growth in 2018, with its $9.2 billion in profits up more than 64% from the previous year. Revenues were down slightly, but the government-sponsored enterprise heralded a “transformed business model” in the 10 years after the financial crisis that, like Fannie Mae, could see it soon taken out of government conservatorship. Freddie Mac provided $396 billion in liquidity to the mortgage market and helped more than 2 million families to own or rent a home last year—with first-time homebuyers representing nearly 46% of its new purchase loans.
