Federal Housing Finance Agency to Retain Capital in the GSEs

Federal Housing Finance Agency Director Mark Calabria today announced the Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSEs) Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac will be permitted to retain a combined $45 billion worth of earnings, effectively halting a policy in place since 2012 of diverting the GSEs’ earnings to the Federal Treasury.

Investors Unite Executive Director Tim Pagliara issued the following statement:

“FHFA’s action to allow the GSEs to retain the capital they earn is a victory for taxpayers who have long been at risk for possible GSE losses due to the illegal net worth sweep. Director Calabria had it right when he said ‘the status quo is not an option.’ This is a milestone in ending the conservatorship and honoring the government’s commitment to GSE shareholders, taxpayers and perspective homeowners.”
