FHFA Announces Results of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Stress Tests

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
4/30/2014

Washington, D.C. – The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) today released a report providing updated information on possible ranges of future financial results of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac under specified scenarios.  The report, Projections of the Enterprises’ Financial Performance, reflects results of stress tests Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are required to conduct, starting this year, under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.  The stress tests are designed to determine whether Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac could absorb losses as a result of adverse economic conditions. 

The report also contains the results of annual financial results projections that FHFA has published since 2010 (the “FHFA scenarios”).  The FHFA scenarios reflect forward-looking financial projections across three possible house price paths and were developed in conjunction with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.  Next year, only the Dodd-Frank Act Stress Tests will be required.
