Fannie Mae filed its second quarter 2019 financial results this morning, and it’s been another strong quarter for the company and for Multifamily. We’re continuing to deliver on our mission to provide liquidity to the mortgage market, enabling families to buy, refinance, or rent a home.
A few highlights from our filing are below, including our multifamily results.
Multifamily Business Highlights
- Multifamily's net income was $561 million in the second quarter of 2019, driven by $731 million in net interest income. Approximately 80% of our multifamily net interest income in the quarter was derived from guaranty fee income, which continued to provide a stable driver of earnings for the business. The multifamily guaranty book of business reached over $320 billion in the second quarter of 2019.
- Working with our DUS® Partners, Fannie Mae provided $17.2 billion in multifamily financing in the second quarter of 2019, which supported 183,000 units of multifamily housing. Over 90% of the multifamily units the company financed were affordable to families earning at or below 120% of the area median income, providing support for both affordable and workforce housing. In the second quarter of 2019, 50% of multifamily new business volume counted toward FHFA's 2019 multifamily volume cap, which resulted in approximately 56% of our multifamily new business volume of $34.1 billion for the first half of 2019 counting toward the cap.
