Fannie Mae Regulator Plans Securitization for Post-GSE World

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will create a common platform for issuing mortgage-backed securities as they wind down operations and plan for a future in which the two companies no longer exist, their regulator said.

The government-owned enterprises also will start sharing risk with private financiers in the single-family loan market, aim to reduce their multifamily-housing business by 10 percent and continue raising fees they charge to guarantee securities, Edward J. DeMarco, the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s acting director, said yesterday on a conference call with reporters.
