MCLEAN, VA–(Marketwired – Nov 9, 2017) – Freddie Mac (OTCQB: FMCC) announced today that it has obtained a new insurance policy under its Agency Credit Insurance Structure (ACIS®) program. It provides a maximum limit of up to approximately $400 million of losses on single-family loans. ACIS 2017-7 transfers credit risk on a $56.2 billion pool of 30-year mortgages purchased between November 1, 2016 and March 31, 2017. Through ACIS 2017-7, a substantial portion of the remaining credit risk on Structured Agency Credit Risk (STACR®) 2017-DNA3 is being transferred.
“Freddie Mac values our important strategic relationships with insurers and reinsurers as we consistently explore for new ways to grow and improve the ACIS offering,” said Gina Subramonian Healy, vice president of credit risk transfer.
