Thank you for making 2015 an outstanding year for Fannie Mae Multifamily! Today, Multifamily posted annual net income of $1.5 billion. An additional $693 million in net interest income and yield maintenance income was earned on Fannie Mae multifamily mortgage loans and MBS.
It is our partnership and the success of our unique risk-sharing model that makes all the difference in our results. Together, we provided $42.3 billion of financing to the multifamily market, while maintaining prudent credit standards, a quality book of business, and delivering solid financial results. I look forward to a terrific 2016 and our continued partnership in providing financing and securitization for rental workforce housing -- in every market, every day.
