Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac announce underwriting advisers
J.P. Morgan and Morgan Stanley will guide the GSEs as they end conservatorship

June 15, 2020 | By Kathleen Howley | HousingWire

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, the world’s largest mortgage financing companies, announced on Monday the firms they will use as financial advisers for a future share offering, another step toward exiting their 12-year government conservatorships.
Fannie Mae, the bigger of the so-called government-sponsored enterprises, said it has chosen Morgan Stanley while Freddie Mac said it will use J.P. Morgan. Together, the two mortgage companies guarantee more than half of the $11 trillion outstanding U.S. home loans.
Announcing the advisers in the middle of the worst health crisis to hit the U.S. in more than a century underscores the Trump administration’s determination to end government control of the mortgage giants before “election risk” gets in the way. That’s the polite term pundits use to highlight the possibility that President Donald Trump may lose the election in November, which would leave Democrats to decide the fates of the two companies.
The newly announced advisers will help take Fannie and Freddie through steps that are necessary to leave federal conservatorship, including reviewing their business plans and strategies for recapitalizing the companies.   More…
The FAMP Lenders & Affiliates committee is dedicated to supporting loan originators and growing business opportunities mutually, while encouraging active participation and increase overall membership within our industry and industry related partners.
