Washington, D.C. – Today, the Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) selected Houlihan Lokey Capital, Inc. (Houlihan Lokey) as a financial advisor to assist in the development and implementation of a roadmap to responsibly end the conservatorships of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the Enterprises). While developing the roadmap, Houlihan Lokey will consider business and capital structures, market impacts and timing, and available capital raising alternatives, among other items as outlined in the previously published Statement of Work.
