FHFA: 2019 Scorecard for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and Common Securitization Solutions
December 19, 2018
Washington, D.C. – The Federal Housing Finance Agency (FHFA) today released the 2019 Scorecard outlining specific conservatorship priorities for Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac (the Enterprises), and their joint venture, Common Securitization Solutions, LLC (CSS). The 2019 Scorecard furthers the goals outlined in FHFA’s Strategic Plan for the Conservatorships of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, published in May 2014. These goals include:
- Maintain, in a safe and sound manner, credit availability and foreclosure prevention activities for new and refinanced mortgages to foster liquid, efficient, competitive and resilient national housing finance markets;
- Reduce taxpayer risk through increasing the role of private capital in the mortgage market; and
- Build a new single-family infrastructure for use by the Enterprises and adaptable for use by other participants in the secondary market in the future.
For all Scorecard items, the Enterprises and CSS will be assessed based on the following:
- The extent to which each Enterprise conducts initiatives in a safe and sound manner consistent with FHFA’s expectations for all activities;
- The extent to which the outcomes of each Enterprise’s activities support a competitive and resilient secondary mortgage market to support homeowners and renters;
- The extent to which each Enterprise meets FHFA’s expectations under the Conservatorship Capital Framework (CCF), including FHFA’s expectations on meeting appropriate return on conservatorship capital targets;
- The extent to which each Enterprise conducts initiatives with consideration for diversity and inclusion consistent with FHFA’s expectations for all activities;
- Cooperation and collaboration with FHFA, each other, the industry, and other stakeholders; and
The quality, thoroughness, creativity, effectiveness, and timeliness of their work products.
