Freddie Mac Further Increases Transparency for Investors

Provides New CRT Pricing Disclosures

MCLEAN, VA--(Marketwired - Sep 5, 2017) - Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) today announced that it is making available pricing and deal terms for all Agency Credit Insurance Structure (ACIS®) and Whole Loan Securities (WLS(SM)) transactions to date. Both are important offerings in its Credit Risk Transfer (CRT) program. This builds on similar disclosures for Freddie Mac's flagship Structured Agency Credit Risk (STACR®) program. Pricing disclosures for STACR, ACIS and WLS can be accessed on FreddieMac.com.

"Transparency is a significant issue for investors, and today Freddie Mac took another big step in enhancing it for ACIS and WLS transactions," said Kevin Palmer, SVP of single-family portfolio management. "Credit risk transfer is one of the most transparent programs in the market, and we'll continue to look for ways to enhance it."

Freddie Mac has led the market in introducing new credit risk-sharing offerings with STACR, ACIS and WLS. The company has since grown its investor base to more than 220 unique investors, including insurers and reinsurers. Since 2013, the company has transferred a significant portion of credit risk on approximately $760 billion of UPB on single-family mortgages.
