The Report provides a comprehensive picture of how Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (the Enterprises) transfer a substantial portion of credit risk to the private sector through a variety of transactions in both the single-family and multifamily markets.
Through the first half of 2019, Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac transferred 84 percent and 89 percent, respectively, of the allocated credit risk capital on 2018 acquisitions covered by credit risk transfer.
