MCLEAN, Va. – Today, Freddie Mac CEO David Brickman issued the following statement after the Financial Stability Oversight Council’s (FSOC) discussion of the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s (FHFA) re-proposed Capital Rule:
“The Financial Stability Oversight Council’s discussion of FHFA’s proposed Capital Rule signifies important momentum toward exiting conservatorship. We thank members of the FSOC for making this a standalone agenda item in the face of many competing priorities. As Freddie Mac continues working to assist homeowners and renters adversely affected by COVID-19, we remain focused on a responsible exit. Today’s discussion is a critical step toward that goal.”
