Fannie Mae's Multifamily MBS Issuance Jumped 45 Percent in 2011

Fannie Mae GeMS™ Issuance Reached $6 billion Milestone in the Program's First Year

WASHINGTON, Jan. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Fannie Mae (OTC Bulletin Board: FNMA) today announced that the company issued $7.2 billion multifamily MBS(1) in the fourth quarter of 2011, the highest quarterly issuance since Fannie Mae began reinvigorating its multifamily MBS business in 2009.  Total new issuance for 2011 was $23.8 billion, up from $16.4 billion in 2010.  Fannie Mae also resecuritized $6.0 billion of DUS MBS through its Fannie Mae Guaranteed Multifamily Structures (Fannie Mae GeMS) program in 2011.

"Market activity in our multifamily securities is clearly gaining momentum.  Tradable float, the volume of securities available to investors, has increased significantly over the past few years.  Fannie Mae's multifamily MBS outstanding has grown to over $100 billion.  As volumes increase and liquidity rises, we expect market participants will focus on Agency multifamily securities in the coming year," said Kimberly Johnson, Fannie Mae Vice President of Multifamily Capital Markets.

Fannie Mae is the market leader in financing U.S. multifamily mortgages and has traditionally been a leader in this market.  The company's DUS MBS securities provide market participants with easily-modeled cash flows and call protection in defined maturities of 5-, 7- and 10-years.  Fannie Mae's GeMS program consists of structured multifamily securities created from Fannie Mae's portfolio of mortgage securities.  Features of Fannie Mae GeMS have included block size transactions, collateral diversity and pricing close to par through Fannie Mae's multifamily REMICs (ACES®) and multifamily Mega securities.

Highlights of Fannie Mae's multifamily activity in 2011 include the following:

1)  MULTIFAMILY MBS BACKED BY NEW MULTIFAMILY ACQUISITIONS
New multifamily MBS business volumes in the fourth quarter of 2011 totaled $7.2 billion.  Total 2011 new issuance volumes reached $23.8 billion

2)  FANNIE MAE GeMS ISSUANCE
Issuance of Fannie Mae's structured multifamily securities created from its portfolio totaled $1.9 billion in the fourth quarter of 2011, including $1.8 billion in GeMS REMICs and $0.1 billion in GeMS Megas.  For full-year 2011, Fannie Mae issued $6.0 billion in GeMS securities, including $4.4 billion in GeMS REMICs and $1.6 billion in GeMS Megas.

3)  FANNIE MAE SALES
Fannie Mae Capital Markets sold $10.6 billion of multifamily mortgage securities in 2011, including $2.8 billion in the fourth quarter.(2)

After more than five years of DevOps, definitions are evolving, boundaries are expanding, ‘unicorns’ are no longer rare, enterprises are on board, and pundits are moving on. Can we now look at an evolution of DevOps? Should we? Is the foundation of DevOps ‘done’, or is there still too much left to do? What is mature, and what is still missing? What does the next 5 years of DevOps look like? In this Power Panel at DevOps Summit, moderated by DevOps Summit Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists looked back at what DevOps has become, and forward at what it might create next.
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.

New competitors, disruptive technologies, and growing expectations are pushing every business to both adopt and deliver new digital services. This ‘Digital Transformation’ demands rapid delivery and continuous iteration of new competitive services via multiple channels, which in turn demands new service delivery techniques – including DevOps. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit 20th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Co-Chair Andi Mann, panelists examined how DevOps helps to meet the demands of Digital Transformation – including accelerating application delivery, closing feedback loops, enabling multi-channel delivery, empowering collaborative decisions, improving user experience, and ultimately meeting (and exceeding) business goals.
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might slip up with the wrong focus, how to manage change and risk in all three areas, what is possible and what is not, where to start, and especially how new structures, processes, and technologies can help drive a new DevOps culture.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discussed the patterns and anti-patterns of DevOps, and what it means to ‘do the right thing’ in a DevOps way, but in the real world.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cloud marketplaces and DevOps are changing the economics of hosting and delivering software.
"When we talk about cloud without compromise what we're talking about is that when people think about 'I need the flexibility of the cloud' - it's the ability to create applications and run them in a cloud environment that's far more flexible,” explained Matthew Finnie, CTO of Interoute, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. End users now struggle to navigate multiple environments with varying degrees of performance. Companies are unclear on the security of their data and network access. And IT squads are overwhelmed trying to monitor and manage it all.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to change their culture and cultures are very hard to change. To paraphrase Peter Drucker, "culture eats Agile for breakfast." Successful approaches are opportunistic and leverage the power of self-organization to achieve lasting change.
In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Doug Vanderweide, an instructor at Linux Academy, discussed why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers with heavy investments in serverless computing, when most of the industry has its eyes on Docker and containers.
