MCLEAN, VA--(Marketwired - Dec 9, 2015) - Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) announces the pricing of the SB9 offering, a multifamily mortgage-backed securitization backed by small balance loans underwritten by Freddie Mac and issued by a third-party trust. The company expects to guarantee approximately $400 million in SB9 Certificates, which are anticipated to settle on or about December 22, 2015.
"This is the largest small balance loan securitization we have brought to market to date and the first one to include collateral from multiple lenders," said Mitchell Resnick, vice president of Multifamily Capital Markets for Freddie Mac. "As our SBL program continues to develop, we expect to offer additional innovations that will expand funding to this underserved market and shift risk from taxpayers to private capital markets."
